59188Photo #59188Credit to Costain, and/or the designers of the Link Road works, for this excellent path diversion round the work site.
I was expecting a narrow, obstructed, bumpy diversion, and therefore very surprised when this wide, well-surfaced, lit route was created. It now even has a bench for people to watch the work! I have never seen chicanes on a hill before which you could actually cycle round at a sensible speed but not at a dangerous speed, I wish all chicane barriers were like this! Having said that, I'm not 100% sure they were necessary, perhaps more so on the E end where visibility is restricted under the bridge, but either way far far better than what is usually done.

58783Photo #58783A pointless bit of cycle diversion onto and off the path.
As you can see from the photo, there is a toucan crossing, cyclists are it seems expected to use that all the way across, then make their way back into traffic off the shared-use path. I suppose it is also the end of said path coming along that side of the road. Either way, there is no 'slip road' and no priority or even warning over traffic.
Other:
Problem
general
58782Photo #58782The only excuse for this path is that there is an excellent off-road path running parallel not far from the road.
For people accessing properties on the road though, or those crossing it to get to the path, the road itself is extremely busy, with lots of HGVs, and is narrow and generally unattractive. The path is narrow (it would admittedly be very hard to find more space here), is obstructed all over the place, has no priority over side roads or direveways even though it is a main route into the city, and is badly marked/worn out. It's the same both sides of the road. Shall I go on?
Other:
Problem
general
58781Photo #58781Both good and bad in one place. Bus stops in shared paths are rarely a good thing, especially when this narrow.
Making the best of a bad situation though, I have never seen a barrier like this before, which stops the stop users from suddenly appearing from behind the ad hoarding. The extra metre of visibility gives rider and pedestrian a chance to avoid each other. You would still have to slow down a lot though to be safe.

58314Photo #58314During the construction of a new road bridge over the Lune the Lune Cycle Path (part of the Sustrans Way of the Roses) had to be diverted. I was expecting a botch-up but we got this convenient well constructed diversion which will be in use for up to two years. then the original path line will be restored. Full Marks!Temporary closure:
