[Image taken 18.11.22] Burton Stone Lane, York. The width here does not meet LTN 1/20 requirements. Table 5-3: Additional width at fixed objects Kerbs 61mm to 150mm high 200. So, the actual width of the cycle channel is 130cm. The usable width is 130 - (20 + 20) = 90. “Figure 5.2 shows the range of dimensions for cycles typically in use. It is important that infrastructure can accommodate the full range of cycles to ensure routes are accessible to all cyclists. Cycle trailers and tricycles are usually about 0.8m wide, but adapted cycles can be up to 1.2m wide. The cycle design vehicle referred to in this document represents a composite of the maximum dimensions shown in Figure 5.2 is assumed as 2.8m long and 1.2m wide.
The new measures went in week beginning 14 November 2022. These cushions replaced the previous tarmac ones. Drivers (even of the smallest vehicles) can and are simply straddling them – as they did previously. As they do everywhere there are speed cushions around the city positioned with space either side exactly where motor vehicle wheels run naturally. The new infra seems temporary. The components look as if they could be easily removed. Is this a trial? Context/overview and links see: #187753. Image from 25.1.23: obstruction by a construction vehicle: #190047.
