[Image taken 4.5.21] Tanner Row, York. This contraflow cycle lane is not safe for any user. Yet is now also signed for people in wheelchairs. See also: #168584 and links.

[Image taken 4.5.21] Wellington Row, York. These signs are not true. I am baffled by wheelchair users being directed this way. The pavements are not wide enough and the carriageway under pressure and hazardous. See also: #168585. Wellington ... [more]

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. View from the riverside end - just reopened in its new width format - of the route through Marygate car park. The red block shows where the steep slope to/from Scarborough Bridge intersects with ... [more]

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. A very steep slope leads to/from Scarborough Bridge. To get up a slope on a cycle you need a runup and to be positioned correctly. Wider, longer cycles (see: #165610), and those with trailers ( ... [more]

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. This link is important for work, leisure, tourism, community and… schools. All images of the newly reopened route (first week of May 2021) see: #168548 and links.

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. The fence panel restricts the width of the reopened route and is a hazard. See also: #168551, #168552, #168553. All images relating to the reopened route see: #168548 and links.

[Image taken 4.5.21] Marygate car park, York. Mud, with phone to provide scale. See also: #168578 and links.

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. Pedestrian approaching the slope marked for cycles but used by most people as it's more direct, shorter and the first one you come to from this direction. The corner is a blind one, though. See ... [more]

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. Gap 3 of four (see: #168555) linking the car park with the cycle-ped-wheechair route through it. However this one is unprotected (compare with: #168558, #168560). Therefore cars will block it. T ... [more]

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. Gap 2 (see also: #168559) of four (see: #168555) linking the car park with the cycle-ped-wheechair route through it. All images today: #168548 and links.

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. There are four gaps between the car park and the cycle-ped-wheelchair route to provide permeability. Gaps 1 and 2 seen from the shared use route through the car park. The nearest gap is gap 1 (s ... [more]

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. A cyclist makes it up the incline to Scarborough Bridge. The corner at the bottom is blind and the angle tight. The previous three cyclists didn't get a runup, were in the wrong gear and had to ... [more]

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. The fence panel unnecessarily limits the width of the just reopened route. It’s also a hazard. See also: #168551, #168552. All images today: #168548 and links.

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. A typical social group approaching the narrow gap on the reopened route. See also: #168551, #168553. All images today: #168548 and links.

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. Many cyclists were still using the car park even when the all-users route (to the right of the wooden fencing) was less empty. All images today: #168548 and links.

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. The route (the section in which these pedestrians are walking) is open at its new width. Wider than the original (see: #166422) but much less than the covid-19 coned off popup: #157641. The bays ... [more]

[Image taken 6.5.21] Crichton Avenue roundabout (junction with Kingsway North), York. Second image of this vehicle here today: #168546.

[Image taken 6.5.21] Crichton Avenue roundabout (junction with Kingsway North, York). I was here at ‘schools out’ time. Children and families heading for home but sightlines on the footpath and the Orbital route [http://yorkshireridings ... [more]

Corkerhill Road, with a cycle lane for northbound cyclists, and a toucan crossing for those going via Pollok Park (following NCN7 and NCN75). Protection of the cycle lane by means of armadillos starts after the bus stop.

Linthaugh Terrace meets Corkerhill Road, where NCN7 and NCN75 cross over to the footway on the far side of the dual carriageway. If not going via Pollok Park, northbound cyclists should stay on this side where there is a (now protected) cyc ... [more]

NCN7 and NCN75 on Linthaugh Road. This residential dual carriageway is traffic calmed with chicanes, but otherwise has nothing to make cycling safer.

Signage for NCN7 and NCN75 at the junction of Linthaugh Terrace and Linthaugh Road. The 'No Through Road' signs (backs to camera) don't exempt cycling.

The pop-up cycle lane on Braidcraft Road ends just short of the roundabout at Corkerhill Road. NCN7 and NCN75 join from the left after the roundabout but no connection has been made.

[Image taken 5.5.21] Terry Avenue (Millennium Bridge/Butcher Terrace end). This zebra appeared at lunchtime. Passing spaces were being installed too. Their purpose and presence of the vehicles creating them further detract from the calm saf ... [more]

[Image taken 16.3.21] St Andrewgate, York. Typical York cycles ie embellished with bags, baskets (fore and aft), bells, blooms... Alas no drop kerb to help those who have mobility issues and/or with a heavy cycle. And there's no space for w ... [more]

A feeble design bicycle 'toast-rack' parking facility outside the surgery. It doesn't properly support the bike and there's not enough distance between it and the planter. And it's made from galvanised steel not stainless steel. Other than ... [more]

Pop-up cycle lane on Great Western Road, at bus stop near Balvie Avenue. The tactiles are of the lesser-spotted Guidance Path type, in a rubber stuck-down form. I think the pipe might be the drainage.

The end of the Brockburn Road pop-up cycle lane, approaching the Linthaugh Road junction.

A bus boarder under construction on the Brockburn Road pop-up cycle lane project.

The Brockburn Road pop-up cycle lane. The ramps at the start of the bus boarders cause quite a jolt and could have been made a bit smoother. Again, Guidance Path tactile paving has been used. Contrary to the fuss being made in the press ... [more]

A pop-up cycle lane has been provided on Braidcraft Road, although the sign says it is a bus lane.

A pop-up protected cycle lane being finished off on Braidcraft Road, on what is a very high capacity road for such a low car ownership area.

  • Icon 168587 Very narrow road, right outside a school entrance. Cars use it as a shortcut to avoid lights at Edward St/Richmond Place.
  • Icon 168586 Reduce speed limit to 30mph from Beggars Lane to Braunstone Cross Roads, cycle lanes are not fit for purpose except when for when standing traffic
  • Icon 168577 Pavement is wide enough however people always park their cars on it, despite the No Parking signs on the wall, meaning pedestrians have to walk along the road. Oddly, bollards have been added to pavements in other (much quieter) areas of this estate but not on North Side between Autumn Drive and Fall Pass where pavement parking occurs regularly each day.
  • Icon 168573 To access this path southbound, cyclists have to wait in the centre of a busy road, on a bend. No refuge. extend path to Anstey or provide safe means of access
  • Icon 168572 No improvement for pedestrian and cycle crossing here at all despite recent upgrade. crossing controls needed.
  • Icon 168571 The cycle lane surface is awful and lumpy and seems to be degrading. please can we have nice smooth paths laid by a machine?
  • Icon 168570 Add bikes here
  • Icon 168569 Add bikes here
  • Icon 168568 Bike share for the DMU Conference & Leisure Centre here please !
  • Icon 168567 Bike Share for Hinckley Road residents here please !
  • Icon 168566 Wider pavement to allow for wheelchairs and buggies. Bins and recycling boxes are a hazard to everyone and especially those less able to navigate the narrow pavements.
  • Icon 168534 Open up as cycle path to connect Marley Head & Dean Prior
