  • New barrier on Addenbrookes busway bridge

    Created by Finlay KM // 1 thread

    A new set of barriers has appeared on the hospital side of the usway bridge at Addenbrookes.
    Creates the usual set of problems for cargo bikes and less confident bike users, with the added bonus of being on a steep hill that ices up regularly, and right next to a busway with a record of squishing people who fall onto it.

  • Threat of barrier on existing Highworth Ave cycle route

    Created by Matthew // 1 thread

    I've gotten wind that some residents are pushing for an exclusionary barrier of some kind to block the existing filter at Highworth Ave / Leys Road. Right now it's a couple of nice planters with a reasonably-sized gap that any kind of cycle can ride through. I don't know exactly what they're planning but they want to stop motorbikes, which can only mean something really obnoxious for everyone else.

    While I sympathise about the motorbike problem (I see them too, being a nearby resident and frequent user of this cut-through), I am very worried about this kneejerk reaction that will harm legitimate users of the filter. A form of collective punishment for the actions of a few, basically.

    I would like to alert people who may be worried about yet-another obstacle on a cycle route, or even possibly losing a nice quiet cycle route that lets us avoid nasty parts of Arbury and Milton Roads.

    Installation of new car park control barrier, at Scott Polar Research Institute, Lensfield Road, Cambridge, CB2 1ER

    https://idox.cambridge.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=O7MV00DXLUM00

    This is a heavily-used entrance for cycling and walking. The proposed cycle/walk section seems far too small.

    This might not be a problem if closed only at night, but during the day would cause an obstruction.
