[Image taken 18.10.22] Wigginton Road, York. The sandbag spillage has been cleared up. Context: #186293. The entry to/exit from the works site seems to get hosed down regularly. Perhaps at the end of each working day. Safer for the very … [more]

[UPDATE: #186817] [Image taken 25.9.22] Wigginton Road, York. This sign has an exploded sandbag beneath it. The bag is not doing its job – holding the sign in situ. It is creating a skid hazard. Disappointing, after the one opposite was … [more]

[Image taken 24.9.22] St Andrewgate, York. A stashed or abandoned sign, and a sandbag. Signs left like this can become hazards or be used as tools to destroy property or as weapons. Sandbags can explode (see: #186293). The grit released is … [more]

[UPDATE: First the sign, then the sand disappeared. I hope the latter was cleared up by humans rather than dispersed by wind, rain and/or the movement of people over it. But another instance has appeared on the opposite corner: #186293.] … [more]

[UPDATE: Late May 2022, CYC removed this.] [Image taken on 4.5.22] Royal Mail sorting office, Leeman Road/Esplanade, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] A ghost sign and sandbag. (It used to be here: #173197.) Unsightly, a trip … [more]

[Image taken 26.4.22] Cocoa Works development, Haxby Road, York. This sandbag is a trip hazard. It suggests the area of the works is not checked. (Hence the fallen planning notice: #182107.) Other images today and links: #182070.

[Image taken 28.2.22] York. [Note: No street view at this location.] The removal of the previous barriers (#168478) has left a hazard: that stump. The introduction of the temporary barrier has brought with it an additional hazard: the … [more]

[Image taken 28.2.22] Knavesmire, York. The wooden barriers (see: image from 2017: #90867, image from 2021: #168478) have been removed. This is much more permeable - quadricycles and trikes use this part of NCN65 - but what is the long-term … [more]

[Update April 2022: I noticed recently the sign has finally been removed (from behind the railings, lying on the ground). It was not doing its job. It was simply litter and like litter was attracting more rubbish and making the area less … [more]

[Later image: #175803] [Image taken 31.10.21] York rail station, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] Context: #175432. I moved the sign out of the way of all users of this key entrance to/exit from and through the rail station. … [more]

[UPDATE: #175432.] [UPDATE: Evening of Friday 29.10.21 after a day of heavy rain with more forecast. No change. I will chase up Network Rail who said they could clear up the sand/grit. ][Image taken 24.10.21] Riverside entrance to York rail … [more]

[Image taken 20.7.21] Marygate car park, York. [Note: No street view at this location.] The Network Rail employee removed this split bag (therefore redundant and a trip hazard) on his own initiative. Context image: #172322. Other images … [more]

[Image taken 20.7.21] Marygate car park, York. [Note: No street view at this location.] One of two barricades that have, it appears, been abandoned. They have been moved around. The sandbags and the feet are trip hazards. The black bag is … [more]

Update: I saw late afternoon on 28.6.21 the sign and sandbag have been removed. [Image taken 20.6.21] Marygate car park, York. Sign not doing its job. Sandbag creates a hidden hazard. The sign was in situ on 6.5.21 see: #168554. But who … [more]

[More recent image: #170670] [Image taken 8.6.21] Marygate car park. The gap was open at 15.45ish today. But the sandbag was again a hazard. See previous images this issue: #169955. Other images today: sign removed: #169953, other errant … [more]
