[Image taken 28.6.21] Foss Islands Path entry/exit across Denning’s Yard access, York (between the junction of Crichton Avenue and Wigginton Road.) City of York Council/Sustrans installed these bollards in 2016 – confusingly at the time they were removing obstructions at entrances/exits on Foss Islands Path. In March 2017, Sustrans said: “CYC and ourselves have no plans to remove these bollards, which are there to prevent vehicular access on to the path.” In an email from November 2017, CYC says: “One of the main aims of the access improvements was to standardise the accesses, the gap width which was chosen to achieve this was 1.5m, this is more generous than some of the other gaps at barriers elsewhere in the city where 1.2m tends to be the standard.”
I have chased again for a stage 3 safety audit. I have also said I don’t believe the bollards meet LTN 1/20 standards. [Image taken 30.8.21] Crichton Avenue, York entrance to/exit from Foss Islands Way. The signage includes one for the Orbital Route. Context see: #173656 and links. How the gap used to look pre-bollards: #32673. I struggle to get through with confidence on my two wheeled cycle with front panniers since the bollards were put in. I cannot choose a wide shallow turning circle. All images today see: #170962 and links
