[Image taken 22.11.22] Crichton Avenue/Wigginton Road, York. Context: #187857. Note that the Iceland driver did not move into the ASL (bike box). Other image today and links: #187856.

[NOTES: A FOI asking when this crossing was installed was answered on 23.2.23. It said works started Feb 21, "signal commissioning" 18.3.21. I assume that's when it went live.
IMPORTANT: No application for the development of Denning's Yard is referred to. That application (21_01154_FUL) was not received until 19 May 2021 according to the document approving the development of Denning's Yard.
The plan for the three junctions are here
It was 'resolved' at the Decision Session – Executive Member for Transport on 3 November 2020
The decision was in favour of Option 2.
The report about the crossing (and that across Wigginton Road and Denning's Yard access is here:
"Option 2 – Approve the proposed signal refurbishment with additional controlled pedestrian crossings shown in the drawing at Annex C

Option 2 – Drawing YK2221-P-002
As Option 1 but with additional changes including:
 Provide signal controlled pedestrian crossings over:
o Wigginton Road northern arm
o Crichton Avenue
 Removal of the small pedestrian island on Crichton Avenue
 Signal control of the access coming out from the scrap yard. This is currently an un-controlled access and would need to be signal controlled in order to safely include the new signal controlled
pedestrian crossings. Signalling this arm would need:
o New double yellow lines to be installed on this arm
o A tree to be removed to improve visibility out of the access road
o Amendments to the kerbline on the entry / exit of this arm
This option would provide safer crossings for pedestrians but would increase delays to motor vehicles (general traffic and buses) and lead to larger queues on the approaches to the junction. The junction is still likely to operate within capacity but delays and queues, especially on the northbound Wigginton Road arm will be longer.
