Cycle Crossing LOGOS missing or totally invisble on City Centre

Reported via desktop in the Road Signage category anonymously at 17:14, Friday 22 April 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

The Cycle Lanes all across the City Centre are so badly demarcated which leads to much frustration from both Cyclists and the poor Pedestrians who are totally unware they are walking in Cycle Lanes. As these images illustrate all of those waiting at the crossing are waiting at the Cycle Crossing part, and not waiting in that empty area to the right (where Pedestrians should cross) which is the Pedestrian Crossing section of that Baldwin Street crossing. It needs large LOGOS to be painted on the road (as in my crudely Photoshopped mockup) and all the way along the Cycle Lanes throughout the City Centre area, as currently the Pedestrians are totally unaware they are walking in (or stood on) tiny invisible Cycle LOGOS, so we don't blame them for being unaware, but the blame lies with the City Council Design Team which came up with the idea that tiny LOGOS would suffice, as it's patently obvious they don't work 😥 Can someone in the Council who is actually a Cyclist and rides in this area please advise the Road Marking team on approriate sized markings and the placement of them? Thank you

  • A new enquiry has been raised for this issue.

  • This isn't just an issue at the crossing. All the cycle lanes around the fountains at the centre 1) fail to make it sufficiently clear that they're cycle lanes, 2) funnel pedestrians subconsciously towards them.

    The pedestrians don't just ignore cycle lane markings, the way it's designed induces them to walk there instead of intended bike free areas - so cyclists are pushed out of the cycle lanes to navigate the area. It's most prominent at the crossing where, consistently, the pedestrians all always stand on the side that's marked as the cycle lane, but the whole cycling infrastructure there is a total failure. Resources wasted on half-baked cycling infrastructure thought up by planners that have no idea about what they're designing for.

    Just putting bike markings in the road won't be enough. The cycling lanes in the area need large, unmissable bike markings throughout, a different colour surface and clearer physical segregation from pedestrian-only zones.

  • Every single day to and from work people stand in the cycle lane by Primark /Costa heading towards the bri/harbour. I've nearly crashed into people probably 25 times in 5 years.

    The one down from the bri heads in the "wrong" direction and so bus station buses and cars shoot out without looking right,because there is seemingly no reason for traffic to come down a one way street that only goes up (from their point of view) The cycle lanes in town are absolutely bonkers to be honest.
