Are those brick red lanes meant for pedestrians or bicycles?

Try that here in Malaysia and we'll probably be a accident statistic.

:mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I used to be avid cyclist and other road users do not give way ................

Which reminds me to get my butt on the saddle again.............

That is where the divide begins... considerate cohabitation with respect to safety use for fellow countrymen... :thumbsup:

The brick-colored path is a bicycle lane. An accomplishment to allow cyclists to have their own right of way & use along B-routes (secondary inner sub urban roads). It is not meant as a pedestrian path but it is not a choice opted either for residents because most would have a bicycle rather than ply on foot unless its walking up to the next neighbour to stretch the limbs occasionally to have a chat & coffee. Cyclists are prohibited to cycle on major roads and highways. That is where these special lanes contribute within inner routes, away from the major roads.

The ones who walks on these would be viewed as tourists or holiday workers aka "flower-pickers" who obviously are unaware about it and certainly do not own even a bicycle and fortunately for their own safety, they know its not safe to trek on these lanes after dark as most lanes are neither litted. Usually, the speed allowed for motorized vehicles are between 30, 50 and 70kph subject to Municipal legislation and based on past hazards recorded.

GIBRALTAR

For the first time ever, we entered Gibraltar today. The Spanish border police inspected our Malaysian passports, was unsure what to do, and promptly took us to see his boss, who looked at our docs and said, no problem (or something to that effect - Malaysian passports must be rare sightings here). Soon we were on British soil, and no passport control at their end. :)

View of the Rock from Spain's border town of La Linea.

Nice esplanade of La Linea fronting Gibraltar.

In front of the CIQ complex at La Linea. The 426-metre high limestone Pillar of Hercules is very impressive.

Past immigration, and the airport terminal is on the immediate left.
Image

The RAF is of course here, to defend British sovereignty.
Image

And here's an oddity - the only road into Gibraltar has to cross the airport runway.

Yes, that's runway 09/27 of GIB.
Image

Of course, when no plane is using it, the rest of us can ply the road. Traffic lights with barriers control access at both ends.
Image

Past the runway, we are greeted by BP, who else?
Image

And of course, very British traffic signboard.

> MORE TO COME
