[UPDATE: 29.11.21. The gap now looks like this: #176252.] [25.11.21. The rough surface with the upstand is still as per the image. There is no sign of the temporary ramp/plastic tray. A local disabled organisation I asked about this replied: " It's hard to judge from photos but the surface running up to the gate(?) looks rough which can have problems depending on the specifics. For example, wheels, sticks and crutches can slip on rough surfaces. There is also a slanted lip in front of the gate which, if it is a working gate, could be difficult. In terms of the temporary ramp, they do sometimes get moved by the public unfortunately... I should hope that's the case and it will be replaced now it's been raised."] [Image taken 21.11.21] Dame Judi Dench Walk, York. [NOTE: The image on streetview shows the gap through the floodwall and works associated with the replacement of Scarborough Bridge in 2018/19 to make it accessible.] I saw on Friday the access between Railway Walk/Marygate car park/Scarborough Bridge and the riverside was open despite the sign to the contrary: #176037. But there is a lip of between 3cm and 4cm. Why was the 'yellow tray' (the plastic, temporary access ramp) not put in place for the weekend? You can't get a runup to it as this is a tight space with extremely limited room for a turning circle. More images this location later date: #176232 and links. Other image today: #176031 and links.
