[Image taken 13.4.21] A skip on Bootham, junction with Marygate, York. Bootham has queueing or oncoming motor traffic for much of the day/evening. The vehicles reduce the road space. The skip been here for months. It has no flashing lights. It is an issue for me when I cycle: do I 'take the lane' all the way from the junction where I was in the ASL? This means I am part of the traffic but perhaps holding drivers up. Or do I keep left and get trapped as I get closer and have to stop and wait to move my heavy cycle back into the moving traffic. A friend tells me it's a problem for him, too. I use Bootham most days. Something like this impacts on my feeling safe and likelihood of using a cycle. I would also not feel confident about cycling with someone who didn't know about this issue here and could make their own call on how to handle it, or with a child who would be reliant on my making a safe decision. #167115
