Advanced green phase for cyclists (as pioneered in Cambridge) on the route from the centre of Norwich to the University of East Anglia.

This was a controversial contraflow because car parking should really have been removed to make spece - but it seems to be working well, with drivers and cyclists being considerate.

No-one wants to walk or cycle on the central section!

Stepfree but very awkward access to the riverside path, Norwich!

The radial pedalway makes a discreet turn to the right here.

There are cycle routes on both sides of the river, it seems.

The striking Jarrold Bridge, Norwich

Minimal signage where the pedalway takes a massive jink at the Jarrold Bridge, Norwich

Riverside cycleway, Norwich

Norwich is not flat like Cambridge... this is a genuine hill.

The crossing to Bishop Bridge could be improved for cycling.

It's a shame that the side road still has to give way to the non-existent motor traffic from the bridge.

Cycle route through the cathedral close, Norwich

Was that meant to be a cycleway?

Confused signage - there was meant to be a two-way cycleway on the near side of the road, but then Norfolk highways department realised there had to be more space for buses, so the on-road cycle lane was left on the far side of the road.

This car-dominated roundabout is a gap in the shared-use path along the A11 in Norwich - apparently something may be done after the May 2018 local elections.

Very poor visibility at this crossing.

Multiple entrances on this stretch of road would be dangerous without a competent design.

Any space for cycling here?

New build cycle track takes the basic concepts but fails to understand the point. People emerging from the bus shelter can't see cyclists going past. Slabbed area on the right should have been the footway.

New build cycle track takes the basic concepts but fails to understand the point. Planing on the left interrupts the footway (in light slabs) right by bus stop, causing conflict.

New build cycle track takes the basic concepts but fails to understand the point. The footway (light grey slab paved area) is interrupted by planting that forces cycles and pedestrians in to conflict.

New build cycle track takes the basic concepts but fails to understand the point. Nasty staged junction with railings to get to the next part of the cycle route.

New build cycle track takes the basic concepts but fails to understand the point. Separation here is quite good.

The entry to the Tombland cycleway if heading south on Palace Street. Should you want to turn right in to Wensum Street...?

Very subtle plaques are used to indicate the cycle track. These are ignored or not seen by most people walking.

New 1.5m advisory cycle lanes on Palace Street work when there's no traffic, see #72469 for rush hour.

1.5m advisory cycle lanes have been added to Palace Street with limited success. There is a pair of bollards just before the up ramp.

Cycleway from Palace Street. Oncoming cycles are signed to turn right to rejoin the road here.

A view of the Palace Street (left), Tombland (ahead) and Wensum Street (behind) junction. Cycle can join the cycleway using the gap in the kerbs towards the middle of the picture.
