[Image taken 18.4.21] Clifton Moor Gate, York. There's a huge disconnect between the new provision across Clifton Moor Gate and the routes to and from it. For example, Hurricane Way, is permeable only to people on foot and on cycles at the ... [more]

This apparently hand-made kerb will seriously hurt or kill somebody trying to cross it, especially while turning. There are dropped kerbs nearby but people unfamiliar with the area will expect to turn normally into the road.

South City Way at Bowman Street. In theory, it appears they expect cycles to be able to access the side road, but no dropped kerb has been provided to get from the cycle track onto the shared footway. And no provision for right turns or goi ... [more]

The South City Way cycle route on Victoria Road. Note how the right hand side of the cycle track gets narrower over the width of the road crossing. The markings should guide cyclists away from this area, where the kerb has upstand as the ra ... [more]

[Image taken 16.3.21] York: Bishopgate Street junction with Price's Lane. The image clearly shows the space for passing a cyclist - advisory lanes - in either direction is insufficient. After taking this pic (from the pavement), I rejoined ... [more]

The signed diversion route is shut! Still no dropped kerb.

[Image taken 21.6.20] York: Bishopgate Street junction with Price's Lane. See also: #165589 I have uploaded it to show the narrowness of the cycle lane, the carriageway, the bend, the walls. The signs and cones have long been removed. They ... [more]

Access to the path to the Temple Walkway hindered by a kerb at the foot of a ramp.

[Image taken 3.3.21] At Tanner Row, near junction with Rougier Street, York, the only drop kerb (step-free) access to/from the cycle parking. It's tight, it's behind a signpost. Access is from a busy road and from a contraflow advisory cycl ... [more]

[Image taken 2.3.21] Rougier Street junction with Tanner Row, York. This triangle is cluttered. It has bus stops along the Rougier Street side, with shelters and bus stop signs. There's a new info 'totem' (located too close to the cycle ra ... [more]

[Image taken 1.2.21] Walking route with symbol. By contrast the cycle route 'ends'. Though it is also the 'start'. So why the word and not a cycle symbol as elsewhere eg #156848? See also #162104 #162107 #162109

[Image taken 1.2.21] Monks Cross retail park, York. No drop kerb to assist anyone who might need it and despite the disabled parking spaces opposite. See also #162104, #162108, #162109

The path through Craigton, from Drymen Street to Barfillan Drive, interrupted by a Fire Path on Carsaig Drive. No dropped kerbs for crossing the road. This path provides access to the M8 underpass through to Craigton Road and the Asda super ... [more]

The dropped kerbs either side of the road closure on Morven Street don't align. I noticed this too late and came straight off of the high kerb. See #152275.

Another view of the contraflow cycle lane on Argyle Street. The cycle lanes could easily have been painted with a smoother transition in road position. See also #139322.

The contraflow cycle lane on Argyle Street has an abrupt change of direction, following the kerb. See also #139324.

A contraflow cycle lane has been created on Argyle Street, but it is full of broken asphalt and dislodged stonework, and is nowhere near a smooth ride. With on-coming vehicles now in the centre of the carriageway (as in #139536), less oppor ... [more]

The footbridge at the end of Dolphin Road has fairly steep ramps, but also has quite a bit of upstand on the kerbs on each side.

A poor transition between path and road at Balcurvie Road.
