Sign directs the Bridgewater Way onto the right hand fork - which leads to some steps #88334. It is far more sensible to keep to the newly tarmacked towpath.

Sustrans route sign on link from NCN 5 to NCN 562 in Runcorn - blink and you'd miss it. Also the direction is for route 562 not 62.

Route sign - points down a narrow mud path down an earth bank #103366

Tiny Sustrans sign directs you to a left turn ahead - if you notice it!

Route sign for Runcorn Loop cycleway. No indiaction as to wher to ride in the other direction.

Signs point along Pitts Heath Lane to the roundabout ... then nothing.

Proper signs are needed here. Small stickers stuck to round posts are difficult to spot and are unsuitable for anything other than route confirmation signs.

route sign - but pointing only on one direction

Route Sign on the Bridgewater Way - could do with an arrow pointing in the opposite direction as well

Sign points to Runcorn Town Centre - but which way do you turn on the tow path?

Not very helpful if you want to know where to go.

route sign - one direction only

Cycleway - but where to?

Bridgwater Way Cycleway crosses the canal here - contrary to the direction indicated on the sign.

Misleading Routes Sign. - The Bridgewater Way (RCN 82) turns off Marina Lane here to cross the canal in the direction the pedestrians are taking. The red sign behind the pedestrians implies no access - but this is intended for motors.

Route sign needed to show where the Runcorn loop Cycleway turns off Falstone Drive.

Misleading route sign - The Bridgewater Way is on thje other side of the canal.

Stickers on lamp posts do not make for good route signs. it is very easy to miss the turn off from Windmill Hill Avenue to the Runcorn Loop Cycleway.

Misleading Route Sign: Direction to Norton Priory is OK, but to get to Preston Brook you need to follow the path down to the canal towpath.

Misleading sign: The Bridgewater Way (RCN 82) follows the canal, but the sign points along the Runcorn Loop cycleway which crosses the bridge.

route sticker on post is easy to miss
