[Image taken 19.8.22] Bootham (at junction with Grosvenor Terrace), York. First it was ‘just’ the red phase on the lights on the left-hand (northern) side that could not be seen due to uncut, low hanging, foliage. For a month or more it’s … [more]

[Image taken 20.4.21] Rougier Street junction with Wellington Row, York. Tier electric hire cycle. I moved it to the rack to test the weight - very heavy, and to get a better image. The cycles like the scooters have two-pronged stands. They … [more]

A short diversion off of the Union Canal towpath due to work on the far side of the bridge.

Many of the bridges on the Union Canal towpath have poor sightlines along the path.

The Union Canal has quite a narrow towpath, requiring users to co-operate to pass each other, which disrupts things like being sociable. Imagine if car users had to travel single file!

Pedalos on the Union Canal at Calder

The sightlines under the bridges are so poor that speed humps and a chicane barrier have been provided on the already narrow Union Canal towpath.

Poor sightlines at bridges on the Union Canal - a common problem right along the canal's length.

The path from Cultins Road joins the Union Canal towpath, which is lit with LED catseyes at this point. No identification of the location is offered to canal users.

NCN 75 path along route of former Monkland Canal in Coatbridge. Note that lighting has been installed outside the edge of the path to avoid narrowings.
