[Image taken 17.4.22] Stirling Road, junction with Wigginton Road, York. The reservoir is wide and capacious. But full of grit. It leads to a very tight turn and a would-not-now-meet-standards for the width of shared use non-motorised users ... [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 4.5.21] Wigginton Road, York. This is a continuation of caption: #168510 (and links). The driver realised s/he had made a mistake. But it wasn't the fouling of the ASL and therefore the blocking of anyone on a cycle in Bridge L ... [more]

[Image taken 4.5.21] Wigginton Road, York. The ASLs here are not 'nice to have' but critical for people on cycles exiting Bridge Lane using the cycle light: #167954. This driver blocked the entire ASL for the turning to Haxby Road. I was in ... [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]

Update: far worse encroachment at this ASL see: #168510 and link. [Image taken 29.4.21] Bridge Lane junction with Wigginton Road, York. Encroachment into the ASL is common. This example is a minor infringement. It shows the blind corner t ... [more]

[Image taken 29.4.21] Bridge Lane junction with Wigginton Road, York. View from the pavement approaching the turn from the direction of the hospital. Cyclists get a green signal. But they are set so far back they can't see if pedestrians ar ... [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 29.4.21] Bridge Lane junction with Wigginton Road, York. A removable bollard has appeared. Compare with this image: #89379 from 2017. And the more recent streetview from August 2019: https://goo.gl/maps/r5k2Tukg7PX9ZLQu6: See ... [more]

[Image taken 29.4.21] York hospital, Wigginton Road, York. Un 'upstand' (see: #167919) is never good. At 1cm, this one is comparatively small. Another issue here is the bollard. It is 78cm from the nearest upright (you need more space than ... [more]

[Image taken 29.4.21] York hospital, Wigginton Road, York. This bollard obstructs access to/from the cycle racks. Is it intended to serve a useful purpose? Or is it simply clutter? See also: #167924. For other images of these racks taken to ... [more]

[Image taken 29.4.21] York hospital, Wigginton Road, York. This cycle extends beyond the cycle rack by around 52cm. Some cycles will require much more space. Just as cycles need space in front see: #167920. So you need unobstructed space be ... [more]

[Image taken 29.4.21] York hospital, Wigginton Road, York. These Sheffields are just 62cm from a wall. This limits who can use them. Unless a cycle has a stand and does not need support, you need to be able to wheel the cycle in sufficientl ... [more]

[Image taken 29.4.21] York hospital, Wigginton Road, York. These Sheffield (design) racks are 'toastracks'. They come as a unit (with myriad permutations). Sheffields are intended for people to use both sides f the uprights. These are diffe ... [more]

[Image taken 29.4.21] York hospital, Wigginton Road, York. These Sheffields (cycle parking design) are near the main entrance. Tick. They are easy to find. Tick. They are in corridor busy with human traffic. Tick. They have a lot of natural ... [more]

[Image taken 18.2.21] York, Wigginton Road. The Do not overtake cyclists sign is now visible but it is very close to the junction. This would seem to limit the chances of drivers seeing it and is too late on this section of Wigginton Road f ... [more]

[Image taken 18.2.21] York, Wigginton Road. Again, the Do not overtake cyclists sign would seem to have limited use being placed among a line of other signs, and therefore obscured. See also: #164311, #164310, #164312, #164313, #164315

[Image taken 18.2.21] York, Wigginton Road. Only at this point do road users have a chance of seeing the Do not overtake cyclists sign. But this location is too late to make a difference. Plus drivers have had so many signs with so many mes ... [more]

[Image taken 18.2.21] York, Wigginton Road. Too many signs. Messages get lost. The Do not overtake cyclists sign is still completely obscured at this point and therefore has no value. See also: #164311, #164310, #164313, #164314, #164315

[Image taken 18.2.21] York: First of a blizzard of signs aimed at road users on Wigginton Road ahead of works at the junction with Crichton Avenue. The road is uphill, the carriageway in each direction is very narrow. It is used by large ve ... [more]

[Image taken 18.2.21] York: Do not overtake cyclists signs are in place at works at the junction of Crichton Avenue and Wigginton Roads. (See also: #164311, #164312, #164313, #164314, #164315.) I was pleased to see these signs. I believ ... [more]
