Stepped connection only between NCN route 6 and this (not very important) cycle bridge

Steps with cycle channel - and No Cycle Parking sign on the railings to the right. Why not put some Sheffield [sic] stands there?

Entrance to the wood at Coppice Rise had a 'kissing gate': to exclude bikes?

A traffic boom across NCN6, with a little gap at the side. Would rising bollards (or even a cheaper padlocked drop bollard) not be more appropriate, leaving more space for those on foot and bike?

This route has been closed because of the construction across the street.

New (2016) K barrier on Thoresby Road/Watersmeet Road cycle path. Squeeze plate approx 56cm wide. Note the desire path forming in the grass to the right, ideal for motorbikes who may wish to use this path illegally.
