26123Photo #26123Double no cycling.

The road environment along here seems to be particularly mean for the cyclist. The road has recently become one way - seemingly to accommodate car parking along its length on both sides of the road - (greed). The wide pathway on the left is a promenade to enjoy the views from Richmond Hill. Although cycling is tolerated on that, it is not practical because of the stairs. This pavement seems to have been widened at some point, and the no cycling signs seem to have been put on both bits of it to get rid of any 'ambiguity' over where you can cycle or not!

This is therefore another area where cyclists are being forced to pay the costs of congestion.
General sign/notice:
Infrastructure
signs
26127Photo #26127I'm guessing but I think this unusual No Cycling sign on a pavement has materialised because this road has recently become one-way. Presumably the cyclists who used to use it continue to do so, because the alternatives seem to be a long way round. Poor show, Richmond.Road environment:

26186Photo #26186Greedy planning - allowing cars to fill the available space.
This street has recently been converted to one-way traffic. Despite there being plenty of room for two lanes at the exit and car parking on both sides of the road there is no provision here for contra-flow cycling, and the alternative routes are further and more meandering.
