[Image taken 11.12.21] Haxby Road, York. Look at the detritus in the advisory cycle lane. It’s just 118cm wide and muddy, leafy and therefore slippery. Look at the crowds on the other side of the road. They are making their way to the Joseph Rowntree Theatre ( for a matinee. Look at the ages (see also: #176774). Yet they have all had to cross the roundabout with its wide carriageways and high speeds. No changes were made to the roundabout that improved the safety of pedestrians, cyclists or wheelchair users when CYC added the crossings in this image and reworked the priorities. Instead it made it more fraught and dangerous for all users. The pedestrian crossing on the other side is round a blind corner and makes the carriageway even more narrow. This increases the dangers for people using the crossing and people on cycles. Other images Haxby Road today: #176765 and links.
