[Image taken 9.11.22] Crichton Avenue/Denning’s Yard Access/Wigginton Road, York. 5.5.4 in LTN 1/20 ( reaffirms that if there is a vertical structure next to a facility, you deduct a set amount depending on the height of that structure. "5.5.4 Where a cycle track is bounded by a vertical feature, people will not be able to use the entire width as they will naturally be wary of riding immediately next to walls and kerbs. Designers should provide additional width as shown in Table 5-3 [Table 5-3: Additional width at fixed objects]. In this case the vertical structure is a wall perhaps up to 1m tall. The advice is to deduct 0.5m for "Vertical feature above 600mm high". But, on the other side is a kerb. The advice for this is "Kerbs 61mm to 150mm high 200mm." Therefore the usable width of the pavement is 118cm - (50cm + 20cm) = 48cm. Context and links: #187621. Image this position in other direction: #187628.
