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 .

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.

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.

"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 … [more]

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

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?!

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.

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 … [more]

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.

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 … [more]

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 … [more]

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 … [more]

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 … [more]

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

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

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 … [more]

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

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 … [more]

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 … [more]

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.

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 … [more]

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

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 … [more]

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

A busy main road connecting Heatherton and Mickleover. Cycle paths connecting the areas would be useful, and footpaths (see http://www.flashearth.com/?lat=52.899951&lon=-1.537583&z=16.7&r=0&src=msa) in place could potentially cut out main … [more]

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

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 … [more]

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 … [more]

A6 / Duffield Road. Lots of space for cars, and plenty of space available at the sides of the road, yet none for bikes.
