[Image taken 8.9.22] Bootham, York. The pedestrian crossing over Bootham has been retained. The hatching is part of a cycle-specific crossing: #186051, #186052. Though I think people on foot exiting the route from the former Bootham Park Hospital might not walk the couple of metres to this pedestrian crossing but cross when lights go green for cyclists. There is no stop light and no stop line here – presumably cyclists, motorists are not intended to be in the boxed area/the gap between the first lights (see: #186050) and these. But we often are. It feels like a dog’s dinner. I hope I’m wrong – I’m not a traffic engineer. But the aim is to facilitate safe journeys and encourage takeup of active travel for the short distance between the hospital and the station. However, the changes as they stand have created congestion (and tangible air pollution), uncertainty and hazards for all users – motorised and not. Other image here today and links: #186050.
