A junction with a speed table to reduce traffic speed coming up to the cycle crossing. Makes crossing a lot safer and easier, especially for children frequenting the school on the left.

Other:
Good practice
58380 Photo #58380

Two sets of traffic lights to cross one road. In addition, the lights take a long time to change to green, both adding time to cyclists' journeys. Change crossing into a single road crossing, with a short waiting period .

Derby Canal Path, seen here at a 3-way cycle junction.

Other:
Good practice
58378 Photo #58378

No separation from the carriageway exists for cyclists here, despite cars having plenty of space (encouraging racing for position up/down the hill). This is dangerous for some potential users of this path, as a collision could easily cause a fall into traffic.

Road environment:
Problem
58377 Photo #58377

A reasonable shared-use path along pride park (except for its interfaces with roundabouts) provides decent separation and width to allow safe travel on bicycles.

Other:
Good practice
58376 Photo #58376

Cyclists have to cross this roundabout amongst cars speeding past at 40 mph. The island is clearly designed with speed in mind - large radii and multiple lanes of traffic help cars, but not bikes.

Other:
Problem

A nice wide shared-use path running alongside Derby College, providing bicycle access to students and staff.

Other:
Good practice
58374 Photo #58374

Two crossings to cross one road, adding unnecessary time to journeys. Also, a "cyclists dismount" to cross a toucan crossing for some reason. Remove the sign and replace with a single crossing.

Other:
Problem
58373 Photo #58373

"Cyclists dismount" sign for this minor-road connection on the Derby cycle network. This sign has no legal standing, literally no-one pays attention to it, it only exists on this side of the road, and actually doing what it says would add several minutes to one's journey unnecessarily - why does it exist?

Other:
Problem
58372 Photo #58372

Two traffic lights to cross one road - reduce to one to decrease crossing's effect on cyclists.

Other:
Problem
58371 Photo #58371

A cycle path with no priority over this side road - two of these exist north of pentagon island to access the same non-through road (see map) - why?!

Other:
Problem

The Great Northern Greenway - a fantastic greenway linking Derby and Breadsall at current, with plans existing to extend it to Ilkeston.

Other:
Good practice
58366 Photo #58366

An underpass allowing this cycle path to link up with Derby on the other side of the A61 conveniently. Could improve by linking the other side of the bridge to the cycle network, as it currently just joins onto a road.

Cycleway:
Good practice
58365 Photo #58365

A cycle path in Race Course Park, allowing cyclists to cycle through a green space free of cars. The cycle path does not run along the east side of the park, however, and could do to increase access to streets and houses.

Other:
Good practice
58364 Photo #58364

Cycle path giving priority to a small minor road. Turn radii is also unsuitable due to cars being able to take the corner at speed. Introduce a prioritized path with smaller turn radii to solve these issues.

Other:
Problem
58363 Photo #58363

Two traffic lights to cross a single road. This adds unnecessary length to cyclists' journey times. Also, a lack of cycle path along the green filled with cars means that cyclists have to travel through 6 sets of toucan crossings anti-clockwise around the roundabout (see map for clarification) to continue along the cycle path to north Derby, reducing the directness, convenience and usefulness of this cycle path. Replace with a single crossing point to eliminate the two-crossing situation, and introduce a cycle path along the green to reduce cycle journey times.

Other:
Problem
58362 Photo #58362

Two traffic lights to cross a single road. This adds unnecessary length to cyclists' journey times. Replace with a single crossing point to eliminate the situation present here.

Other:
Problem
58361 Photo #58361

Despite having room for 3 lanes of car traffic, room does not exist for an adequate shared-use path. Here, a grass verge 1-2M wide should exist to separate cyclists and auto traffic to eliminate the possibility of a collision on the cycle path causing a fall into traffic.

Other:
Problem
58360 Photo #58360

A cycle path crosses this roundabout with no priority and huge turn radii enables cars to go through the roundabout at high speed. Dutch roundabouts are currently not legal under DFT regulations, although simple measures such as smaller radii and a crossing point further offset into the joining road would benefit safety.

Other:
Problem
58359 Photo #58359

A 1-way road enables the construction of a reasonable off-road cycle path. Ideally, this road would be removed altogether due to Brian Clough Way running parallel to it, and currently the cycle section of this path is quite small.

Other:
Good practice
58355 Photo #58355

A (poor quality, yet better-than-nothing) cycle path has been built along the right-hand side of this road, but only half-way, meaning cyclists wanting to go to the pentagon island from here have to take a massive detour around 3 times the length of a cycle path if it were provided. Direct and convenient? I don't think so.

Other:
Problem
58351 Photo #58351

Having this path is better than nothing, however its width & separation leave a lot to be desired. The path should be wider to accommodate 2-way cycle traffic, and the noise barrier should be to the left of the cycle path to reduce the deafening sound of 70 mph traffic.

Other:
Problem
58350 Photo #58350

A nice bollard to smack into in the middle of the cycle lane. Useless to deter mopeds etc. due to its positioning.

Other:
Problem
58349 Photo #58349

Cycle path parallel yet significantly offset (behind trees / noise barrier) to Brian Clough Way. Connects to houses and schools, allowing access for all.

Other:
Good practice
58348 Photo #58348

Cyclists have to cross traffic doing 50 mph. Alternatives, such as an underpass, should be looked at.

Other:
Problem
58346 Photo #58346

The final of 3 entrances to the Raynesway service road in the space of few hundred meters (why?!). Massive turn radii and no priority for cyclists over this minor road. Offset this cycle path, reduce turn radii, and introduce cyclist priority.

Other:
Problem
58345 Photo #58345

Another Raynesway cyclists dismount sign (see several others!). Turn geometry slightly better than Royces entrance, however priority over this minor road is still required.

Other:
Problem
58344 Photo #58344

Another poorly designed junction with give-way / cyclists dismount on Raynesway. Turn geometry is also a serious concern as cars travelling 50 mph on the carriageway do not have to slow down greatly to enter. Introduce cyclist priority over this minor road with the appropriate turn geometry / road offset. Interestingly this minor road allows Rolls-Royce employees to enter the Raynesway site, and Rolls-Royce is one of the best employers in Derby for employee cycling levels (10% +). With a clear desire for Rolls-Royce employees to cycle to work, why is the council discouraging them with terrible infrastructure such as this?

Other:
Problem
58343 Photo #58343

Cyclists not only have to give way, but also dismount to cross this road and allow people to access the cricket club's car park (the road only exists to this end). Turn geometry is OK (i.e. cars on the 50 mph carriageway are forced to slow down to enter), although a lack of priority over this side road is wrong - offset the cycle path from the carriageway more and include path priority.

Other:
Problem
58342 Photo #58342

Cycle path runs into the carriageway and then vanishes for some reason, with no markings or signage to suggest this is the case. Very odd.

Other:
Problem
58341 Photo #58341

Cyclists have to give way to the minor road twice , despite travelling adjacent parallel to the main road. Huge turn geometry and bushes blocking cyclists' view don't help either. Offset this path further into the minor road and ensure priority is given to cyclists.

Other:
Problem
58338 Photo #58338

A cycle path giving way to a FREIGHT CONTAINER. A farcical situation.

Other:
Problem
58337 Photo #58337

Two sets of traffic lights to cross a road, adding a disruption and length to journeys made by bike / foot. Improvements: Have only a single set of lights to cross this road, possibly reducing the number of lanes as well in order to increase the path's separation from the carriageway (the path is only separated by a curb at present - hardly adequate).

Other:
Problem
58334 Photo #58334

A huge BMX track in Alvaston park - not infrastructure yet a nice "diversion" perhaps on the daily commute! The cycle path to the right of the picture connects to various locations in Derby.

Excellent in the daytime, however a lack of lighting lets the stretch of cycle path from Penalton Close to Swarkestone lock down at night.

Other:
Problem
58294 Photo #58294

A busy main road connecting Heatherton and Mickleover. Cycle paths connecting the areas would be useful, and footpaths (see www.flashearth.com/) in place could potentially cut out main road usage quite significantly.

Other:
Problem
58291 Photo #58291

Great park with access for cycles. If you look at the map, a minor road exists off oaklands avenue near to the bottom-right of this park. This is planned to connect to the park in the near future, allowing cyclists to avoid a tiring climb up Moorway Lane and several main roads.

Other:
Good practice
58289 Photo #58289

Road markings and reduced with encourage cars to slow down at this crossing point, and visibility for those crossing is excellent, allowing them to see and be seen by oncoming traffic from a long distance away. Only gripe is that this is a 40 road neighboring a school and college.

Other:
Good practice
58288 Photo #58288

A cycle route that goes all around and through Heatherton. Generally quite good connecting to residential areas, schools and green spaces with minimum fuss. Could do with more connectivity outside of the village though.

Other:
Good practice

An example of filtered permeability - this, in addition to others in the area, separates streets that would have significant rat-run potential.

A green space with shared-use paths throughout & plenty of direct connections to nearby residential areas. Even a small forest with evidence of some mountain biking taking place can be seen - something for every cyclist!

Other:
Good practice
58285 Photo #58285

A bridge that, instead of having 2 lanes of traffic and a miniscule footpath, has traffic-light controlled traffic going either way, and a protected foot / cycle path. Improvements: Area is a little too small for the pedestrian / cycle split - simply having a shared-use path would be better.

What is the purpose of these 3 bollards?! Part of the Sinfin - Chellaston cycle path.

Other:

58282 Photo #58282

Lovely cycle route connecting Chellaston and Sinfin. Only downside is a section in the middle that is used very rarely by farm vehicles - it's a poor surface and covered in potholes.

Cycleway:
Good practice
58228 Photo #58228

This cycle path does not have priority over junctions, and exposes cyclists to traffic coming from 4 directions (behind on the carriageway turning left, turning from minor road onto carriageway, going across from opposite minor road on the carriageway, and turning right off the carriageway into the minor road) at once without any measures to protect cyclists. This cycle path should have priority over the minor road, and the turn geometry should be tighter to prevent cars taking the turn at speed.

Other:
Problem
58227 Photo #58227

A poorly designed section of cycle path along Raynesway. Here, the speed limit is 50 mph, and cyclists have to cross this junction (which they have no right-of-way over) a mere 1 metre from the carriageway. The path should be further from the carriageway throughout its entire length, and should have priority over the junctions on Raynesway. Tighter turn geometry could be used to force cars to slow down, ensuring crossing cyclists are seen.

Other:
Problem
58211 Photo #58211

This minor road used to be a cycle path running along raynesway, giving priority to traffic travelling at 50 mph, without any separation, exposing cyclists to noise / air pollution, and junction crossing dangers. Now, this has been converted to a minor road with acoustic paneling, only used by cars for access, making it much more pleasant and safe to cycle along.
