Marygate Car Park gained a 'popup' social distancing covid-19 corridor in summer 2020. It is coned off from the remaining parking area. It represents around 70 parking spaces. It enables users of a key route (two schools, the hospital, York St John University, the riverside, the bus interchange, the rail station) to socially distance but also, critically, to keep moving, especially in cold and wet weather. The original shared space was around 2m (for people on cycles and trikes, pedestrians, runners, dog walkers, people who are blind, people in wheelchairs, people with wheeled walkers, people moving in a leisurely manner, people hastening, families moving in groups on foot and on cycles, and with pushchairs, people with wheeled luggage, people with laden cycles, and since 20 October 2020, an E-scooter hire scheme). Despite the cones, some drivers - as here - chose to block the area and the entrance and exit to the corridor for people using the riverside route or the less steep switchback slope to Scarborough Bridge.
