25287Photo #25287The cycle route along the A1 from Buckden to Little Paxton has one kerb, at the point marked, which is not lowered. It is very frustrating when you have to slow considerably, just as you come down the slope, to continue up the hill towards Diddington.Obstruction:

25263Photo #25263There is a short section of non-cyclepath between the cyclepath at The Dragoon pub on Buckden Rd, Brampton and the cycle path on Thrapston Rd. Cycle commuters and school children travelling between RAF Brampton and Huntingdon are forced to ride along a very busy narrow road (which is used as a short cut to and from the A1 South). Due to the numbers of Hinchingbrooke students using this route to school, traffic is frequently held up by large groups of cyclists, which no doubt frustrates commuting drivers. Converting this stretch of path to a combined pedestrian/cyclepath would make a significant contribution to local road safety,Obstruction:

18878Photo #18878Soon after the worryingly narrow footway on the Ouse Viaduct (photo 18875) the route reaches the eastbound bus stops as a 3m width shared use footway. (Cycle parking is provided on the other side of the busway, off-camera to right.) The pinch caused by the WW2 pillbox is needlessly made worse by new cabinets (width about 2m), forcing a deflection into the pedestrian area. To reach Station Road, St Ives (ahead) the path crosses two wide busways, with right-angle turns.Obstruction:

18877Photo #18877At Station Road, new construction, only guided buses to be allowed to proceed across the bypass road to the park and ride site and on towards Cambridge. A car trap to be installed. Cycles apparently to join the footway here, to cross the bypass. The footway is too narrow for shared use and obstructed by sign and lamp posts, the width at the bike is 1.6m, the post is directly in the path of cyclists leaving/ joining the carriageway.Obstruction:

18876Photo #18876St Ives bypass, at guided bus and cycle route crossing, P+R site behind camera. Here and elsewhere in this development the shared-use footway is faulty, with lamp columns and signposts obstructing a too-narrow surface, and right-angle turns. There is just under 2m width at the post in foreground, just over 2m width near the bike. Now this has been constructed the best fix would be to widen the path close to the crossing, and provide flush slips off the footway, definitely on the town (far) side, preferably also on this side.Obstruction:
