[More recent image showing speed and priority sign: #188990.] [Image taken 18.11.22] Burton Stone Lane, York. The interventions in #187753 but looking southbound. The width of the space between the kerb and the cushion is 120cm. The reason for taking this image though was the hedge. It is currently cut. Yet, this leaves just 93cm for a pedestrian (typical kinetic width 1m) next to a road where speeds are high and vehicles include buses, construction traffic and other long and wide designs. When Gillygate is closed (as it does periodically) motor vehicles of all kinds are re-routed along Burton Stone Lane. The pavements are far too narrow, hedges grow and can be bushy, making walking ever less attractive and option or even impossible, the growing season is lengthening. This scheme does not address the pedestrian experience or the hostile and hazardous environment for people on foot including walking with children or pushing them in buggies. Context/overview and links see: #187753.
