Photo #187860

[Image taken 22.11.22] Burton Stone Lane, York (southbound). Context: #187760. As I cycled south I saw a knot of people including one I recognised as a resident who I had spoken to on Friday. One was a woman. I asked her if her name was the one the residents I had spoken to had said was the scheme designer. She said she was. Some men in hi viz were there too. I pointed out the sign that was almost completely obstructing the entrance to the cycle channel in this image. I pointed out the sand. I received a reply then and subsequently when I spoke to the men in hi viz again, The temporary signs had to be in because the permanent ones had not been installed. They have been installed now.
I said then and repeated it 15 minutes later when I saw them again, Crashes don’t wait until signs have been installed. Drivers don’t need protection. Pedestrians (see: #187796, #187797) and cyclists need protection. Permanent signs need to go in first – with covers over them (see: #186052) – until the scheme is in situ when the covers can come off.
This image shows the sign has been slightly moved so people on cycles can access the channel. But the other hazard – the sand - remained: #187861. (Ahead of my second conversation with the hi viz team, the one who seemed to be the leader was telling another person to remove the sign and clear up the sand.) Look at the wheels of the construction vehicle in the image. They straddle the speed cushion. The driver is not inconvenienced by that piece of infrastructure CYC believes slows driving speeds. Other image here today and links: #187859.
