[Update 17.9.21] The Manager said the board would be relocated to the grass, ie off the footpath. [Image taken 16.9.21] Yearsley pool, Haley's Terrace just off Haxby Road, York. The foliage has been cut back (previous situation: #173603 and links) but now an A board has appeared. Getting through the gaps either side of the pole was tight before. The board reduces the width of the access-exit (at this blind entry/exit point) to 90cm and 158cm. But you that's the actual not usable width - someone on a cycle or mobility scooter coming off the roundabout is not approaching at a right angle. Plus with the increase in motor traffic and what also feels like higher speeds, at peak times I am finding it difficult to cross to the midpoint. And that's in the daylight. The speed limits is 30mph for all roads to/from the roundabout: Haxby Road southbound, Haxby Road northbound and Haley’s Terrace. It doesn't feel as if drivers slow down much when entering the roundabout. I feel it has got even more difficult to cross/move around the roundabout on foot, in a wheelchair, with a cycle on the Hayley's Terrace side. If it is difficult now it will be worse when the clocks change - estimating speeds and seeing people crossing will be even more difficult in the dark/bad weather. [The CYC A board policy for the city centre - Yearsley pool is outside the centre - explains why A boards are problematic and suggests alternatives:]
