Fairfield Street pavement

This one is pretty mad - it is neither a pavement or a road, but something in between.

It starts with no sign to introduce it, but segregated from the pavement and the pub with a barrier.

It then crosses several side roads...

with no protection from crossing vehicles

and a pretty poor surface

including drain gratings

eventually ending in an advanced stop lane.

Now that the road had been nicely resurfaced, the road is far safer and more pleasant.

CYCLISTS DISMOUNT - never a good sign

Labour party conference preparations began with the worst of all road signs...

This one is in St Peter's Square, where the ring of steel is being built.

I long for the day when I see a sign saying "DRIVERS GET OUT AND WALK"

Update - one day later...

The dismount sign has been replaced with something more appropriate :)
