[Image taken 11.7.21] Leeman Road, York cycle contraflow. Cone obstructing the pavement. This is part of the Wellington Row Esplanade live diversion for the flood gates under Lendal Bridge. It is also the signposted route for wheelchair users (see: #171369). The signposted route for people cycling is both counter- and unintuitive, and unrealistic – long, uphill, on heavily trafficked routes with right turns. This image shows one person using the cycle contraflow in the wrong direction. The second cyclist visible on the pavement followed, as did a third in the moments I stood here. This is a diversion route (search on ‘wellingtonrowesplanadelivediversion’) that was badly conceived and puts users at risk. Other images today: #171860 and links
