151477Photo #151477Another example of the high standards that Bury Council maintains on this otherwise good cycleway. Who wouldn't want to cycle through a huge quagmire of mud, eh?

And to those who aren't familiar with the route - there's a paved cycleway under that lot.

141598Photo #141598Road used for rat running by drivers avoiding traffic lights. This is a busy route for pedestrians to access shops on Bury New Road, 3 local schools, Heaton Park, bus stops and tram station. The road splay is so wide and the volume of traffic makes this road dangerous to cross. speed bumps have not helped, it is time to temporarily block the road and measure the results.Temporary closure:

135488Photo #135488For the whole of Brandlesholme Road the cyclepath on both sides of the road is poorly marked, invisible in parts and narrow. The road surface near to the edge of the road is breaking up over lengthy distances so covers most of the cyclepath in partsCycleway:

135076Photo #135076The cycle lane is next to a parking area outside the shops. High risk of 'car dooring' for cyclists. Move the cycle lane off the road and onto the broad pavement area.Cycleway:

134569Photo #134569The path is very thin and only on one side of the road, the road is full of divots and small potholes which on a hill is difficult. It's also at a part where cars are allowed to travel at 40mph. Wider walking space and cycle path is needed here.Track:

133832Photo #133832The length of Bury New Rd / A56 from Bury to Manchester features think 'cycle paths', mostly perfunctory as they are narrow, optional in most areas, frequently obstructed and come under pressure where the road narrows from 2 lanes to 1. I appreciate it will be a huge challenge (many homes use it for parking all along), but it needs widening and segregation. The temptation of using 'traffic free' alternatives should be resisted as these result in convoluted routes that discourage utilitarian cycling.Cycleway:

107043Photo #107043The access here used to be via a tiny little gate, but it's recently been vastly improved and is now easy to walk and cycle through. I suspect this is mostly to do with emergency vehicle access but it's very welcome.Road environment:

103397Photo #103397Utterly pointless cycle barriers. No reason for them to be here. Visibility is good, there won't be a speed issue on the bridge given the approaches, so the only reason I can think that money has been wasted here is to prevent motorcycle access. Don't we have a police force to deal with illegal road use?Obstruction:

101310Photo #101310The criminally underused Daisyfield Greenway, the surface throughout is superb but at the moment, it doesn't really connect very well west of here. Hopefully it will be linked up properly to the new cycleway that leads to Bolton. A link exists through a few streets, but a short section of new cycleway behind those streets would make it far more useful.Cycleway:

101307Photo #101307Panoramic view of the route the new cycleway takes across this existing bridge. At the top left you can just about see two metal fence sections - these are to slow cyclists approaching the steep curve, and seem spaced adequately to allow most cycles through.Cycleway:

Could do with 'soft edges though - edges built up to the level of the tarmac in approx 400 mm strips. Could save a broken collar bone etc. from a minor cycling error especially when the vegetation starts to grow back hiding the sharp edge 100 to 150 mm drop.Cycleway:
