Photo #188017

[UPDATE: 10.1.23. The scaffolding that prevented people from using the pavement has been removed; #189305.] [Image from 10.12.22: #188672] [UPDATE: This was reported to Highways Licensing. On 2.12.22 That department said: "With regard to this, it is an illegal structure on the highway, we are serving notice to the property owner (it is rented out)".] [Image taken 27.11.22] Filey Terrace (looking northbound), York. Scaffolding on no 6. No ‘padding’ (protection) for pedestrians on the uprights, no contrasting colour on the bars, and cross bracing that completely obstructs the pavement. The apex is around 5 feet. There is no light on this side. After dark you can’t see there is an obstruction – a hazard. And if you have limited or no sight? Are seeing dogs so clever they can warn owners of obstructions at height? Other images of the scaffolding today and links: #188014. [NOTE: Further incidence of this in the same street in April 2023: #192961]
