[Image taken on 7.5.22] Bootham Bar/St Leonard’s Place, York. This is an extremely busy junction for non-motorised users. These include residents, business visitors, tourists, pupils from the nearby school.... There are the city walls, the art gallery, loos, a cafe, an ice cream van, popup seating in summer, part of York University... The 'sheep pens' are too small and too narrow for the number of users. People are not treated with respect but corralled into spaces that require you to push a button (some users can't or find it difficult/painful so cannot travel independently and therefore not spontaneously); to make tight turns in very limited spaces with a rough surface - that tactile paving; to cross the rough surface - that tactile paving again as the gap between it and the railing is so narrow; to wait on a discernible slope - the dropped kerb with the tactile paving); to cross in two stages - thus exposing the most vulnerable in society (pedestrians, of all ages including children in buggies/in arms/moving independently, and wheelchair users - all of whom who are closer to 'exhaust pipe' height) to pollution, noise; in a pressured and literally toxic environment.
