[Image taken 25.8.21] Foss Islands Way, Haxby Road, York. [Note: No street view here.] The path would not now meet standards. The hoardings exacerbate the lack of sightlines for people exiting (on cycles, foot, mobility scooters, e-scooters ... [more]

[Image taken 25.8.21] Foss Islands Way, Haxby Road, York. [Note: No street view here.] The path is very steep, very narrow and there is no flat 'reservoir' or waiting space to negotiate the blind corner created by the hoardings. Other image ... [more]

[Image taken 25.8.21] Foss Islands Way, Haxby Road, York. Closer to the entrance to/exit from Foss Islands Way and it's still quite a blind corner due to the hoardings. Other images this issue today: #173459 and links. Other images today: # ... [more]

[Image taken 25.8.21] Foss Islands Way, Haxby Road, York. The access to/exit from Foss Islands Way from the southern side. Tight barriers. And now, due to the hoardings, no sightlines for people (pedestrians, wheelchair users, cyclists, sco ... [more]

[Image taken 25.8.21] Foss Islands Way, Haxby Road, York. The hoardings of the Cocoa Works development (www.thecocoa-works.com/) create a completely blind corner for anyone coming out of Foss Islands Way and anyone turning into it. The prev ... [more]

[Image taken 25.8.21] Marygate car park, Railway Walk, Earlsborough Terrace, York. [Note: No street view here.] Context for: #173453, #173454. This is (during the Marygate and Museum Gardens Flood Alleviation Scheme) the route for pedestria ... [more]

[Image taken 25.8.21] Marygate car park, Railway Walk, Earlsborough Terrace, York. [Note: No street view here.] The hoardings create a complete blind corner. As this was part of the car park with only the low level fencing (as visible in th ... [more]

[Update: The hedge was trimmed on 14.7.21] [Image taken 23.6.21] Field View junction with Tennyson Avenue, York. This uncut hedge means pedestrians, including neighbours with wheeled walkers, and some very young children, can't use the pav ... [more]

[Image taken 4.5.21] Bridge Lane junction with Wigginton Road, York. The removable bollard viewed from a parallel road. The bollard is visible from further away but not, I argue, to people on cycles turning into Bridge Lane from Wigginton R ... [more]

[Image taken 12.5.21] Marygate car park, York. The woman on her own is in the blind corner of the steep slope down from Scarborough Bridge. The two pedestrians in the background, moving sociably and comfortably, take up the available space. ... [more]

[Image taken 12.5.21] Marygate car park, York (looking in the direction of Bootham). The width of this route is just 320cm wide despite it being at a junction with a steep slope. People on cycles need a runup to and sufficient space (turnin ... [more]

[Image taken 12.5.21] Marygate car park, York. Width of shared use, two-way path at this junction with a blind corner and a steep slope to/from Scarborough Bridge, used by most people of all non-motorised travel modes, 320cm. The hoardings ... [more]

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. Pedestrian approaching the slope marked for cycles but used by most people as it's more direct, shorter and the first one you come to from this direction. The corner is a blind one, though. See ... [more]

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. A cyclist makes it up the incline to Scarborough Bridge. The corner at the bottom is blind and the angle tight. The previous three cyclists didn't get a runup, were in the wrong gear and had to ... [more]

[Image taken 1.5.21] Marygate car park, York. This couple have their backs to people coming down the slope from Scarborough Bridge. And that corner is a blind one. See also today: #168006 and links

[Image taken 1.5.21] Marygate car park, York. The space here is ‘all directions’: up and down the slope, towards and away from the camera, and ‘all people’ – on cycles, on e-scooters and cycles, in wheelchairs, on trikes, with tra ... [more]

[Image taken 1.5.21] Marygate car park, York. This the bottom of the steeper of the two slopes connecting Marygate car park/the riverside/Scarborough Bridge/York. Most people, including those in mobility scooters, use this. Officers at York ... [more]

[Image taken 29.4.21] Bridge Lane junction with Wigginton Road, York. Cyclist turning into it round the blind corner from Wigginton Road. Motorcyclist in the ASL. See other views of this bollard from today: #167954 and links

[Image taken 29.4.21] Bridge Lane junction with Wigginton Road, York. Two users each wider than an unencumbered, unaccompanied pedestrian would be. See how close they keep to the wall on the right. But this won't protect them from people t ... [more]

[Image taken 29.4.21] Bridge Lane junction with Wigginton Road, York. Even this close to the new bollard (an obstruction, it seems to me) the corner is still blind for pedestrians in both directions and cyclists turning in. Conflict! Cong ... [more]

[Image taken 29.4.21] Bridge Lane junction with Wigginton Road, York. Approach from Wigginton Road close to the Co-op. This is a blind bend for pedestrians and cyclists turning in to Bridge Lane. And for people on foot coming out. Will peop ... [more]

[Image taken 18.4.21] Hurricane Way, Clifton Moor, York. The width of this shared use path is woefully inadequate: 135cm at its widest, 85cm at its narrowest. It is also unattractive looking - it's not obvious what protection it offers for ... [more]

'No Cycling', 'Slow' and 'Beware of Pedestrians' at a cluttered corner on the Ashton Canal. Not built for cycling, so important that the road network is adapted instead.

'No Cycling', 'Slow' and 'Beware of Pedestrians' at a blind corner on the Ashton Canal path. Not really built for cycling.

'Slow' - a path that needs widened once the work behind the hoarding is finished.

And so we get to Summertown Road with a blind corner to start with. It sets the tone! See also #99174.

Now that NCN7 has been moved onto the footway at Harvie Street there is a new blind corner problem. Also, why is there a priority crossing at Govan Road and no priority for crossing Brand Street?

A blind corner risk on the new Summertown Road shared footway. Note that the position of the dropped kerb discourages cycling away from the wall and towards the kerbline where there is better visibility.

The vegetation needs better management on what has become a blind corner on NCN1.

Blind Corner On Cycle Path Location: Lawrence Hill, Bristol (England, United Kingdom)

New path with blind corner at end, in Kelvingrove Park.

New path (behind the hedge) in Kelvingrove Park, providing a shortcut to NCN756, although as yet not signed as such. Very popular with pedestrians, but the sign says it's a cycleway.

On joining the shared-use footway from Aikenhead Road I almost collided with another person on a bike coming the other way at this blind corner. Poor sightlines here. Additionally, the writing on the direction sign is so small that it is ... [more]

Not the smartest designed or prettiest piece of pathway on the Allander Walkway under the Tesco access bridge.
