[Update 16.9.21] The CYC active travel officer confirmed the ramp will stay when the Scarborough Bridge to Ouse Bridge Flood Scheme diversion works are completed. [Image taken 3.7.21] Tanner's Moat, York. The ramp was installed in the first couple of days of July. Two months after the route along the riverside was closed for the replacement of the Lendal Bridge gates. I asked the person in the wheelchair trike (hidden by the signage) using the cycle cut-through and drop kerb from it why he hadn’t used the ramp. Was it because the bollard would have obstructed his path? He said he didn’t use temporary ramps such as these (see also image: #171347) because they are too flexible. I wheeled my bike up it. The ramp flexed noticeably as I stood on it. I explained I believed a permanent drop kerb was to be reinstated: Would he use that? Yes. There used to be a drop kerb here - see caption: #171343.
