[Image taken 7.10.21] Bootham Terrace, York. Many people know each other at least on 'passing the time of day' terms here. Likely because many are regulars - same time, same reason, same companion/s (dependants, dogs, cared-for people). But ... [more]

[Image taken 7.10.21] Bootham Terrace, York. This is the limited sight line if you have stepped/scooted/cycled/mobility scootered/wheelchaired into the road for people crossing from the passageway that leads to Queen Anne's Road and schools ... [more]

Image taken 4.10.21] This is the extent of the dropped kerb – 67cm. There’s very little turning space and then the width of the gap between the railings and the wall is max 97cm. Nothing at this critical crossing/access point meets eve ... [more]

Green strip cycleway missing parts, as well as being poorly implemented and signed, and blocked by scaffolding without any warning or diversion. Dropped kerb blocked by parked van.

The pop-up cycle lane resumes, but only once the road happens to get wider. I bumped the kerb to allow the couple walking towards me to avoid walking single file. A decent permanent installation would not look like this.

The gate at Robroyston station closes off the full width of the carriageway, and a dropped kerb has been provided on only one side of it to enable cyclists to join the footway and go around it. The nearest dropped kerb on the other side of ... [more]

The cycle path along St Rollox Drive now extends onto Fountainwell Road.

Traffic filtering on NCN7. This separates a small residential area from the industrial estate.

The Kelso Street cycle lane directs cyclists to use a narrow path of paving slabs, with hoop barriers at the end. Sightlines on the corner are not great either.

Poor design makes the path from Alderman Road to Kelso Street vulnerable to obstruction by car parking. There is a dropped kerb and faded green patch, but they are insufficient to prevent motorists blocking them. A build-out is required. ... [more]
