[Image taken 18.1.23] Foss Islands Path at Haxby Road, York. [NOTE: No street view at this location] I took this image, and the others at the same location, to show how much more space there is when the foliage on both sides of a route has been cleared as here. Any user can go right up to the edge of the tarmac. It also feels safer to this route user because the visibility of the route and who is using it is improved. Note the tracks showing the position of cyclists using route – presumably both ascending and descending. They are in the centre. They show routes need to be wide enough for other users to pass in the other direction or faster users to pass slower ones moving in the same direction.

In the time I took to take this image and this one: #189550 a woman with a double buggy, three people on cycles and three pedestrians all had to walk round this vehicle. The drop kerb is completely obstructed so the women with the buggy and the cyclists were unable to use it. In early October 2022, I alerted the York Walking and Cycling Officer to the many problems with this exit/entry here. I'll do it again - with this evidence of need for urgent action. I reported the van to the York Parking Hotline while I was here. Other image today and links: #189546.

[Image taken 18.1.23] Wigginton Road, York. This cyclist has a skinny two-wheeled cycle with no luggage or passengers... But the space is clearly too narrow to pass through easily and safely. The 'feet'/supports of the barriers reduce the usable space (by 20cm) as do the barriers themselves - by 50cm (LTN 1/20 Table 5-3: Additional width at fixed objects assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/951074/cycle-infrastructure-design-ltn-1-20.pdf) Context and links: #189547.

[Image taken 18.1.23] Wigginton Road, York. The space left for all non motorised users on this link used by all ages, for all reasons, on foot with dogs and buggies; hand in hand with children; by people with sight issues; people who are ambulant but with mobility issues; people in wheelchairs, in mobility scooters... and in a sociable three-wheeler called Trixie (see: #186525) and the newer model (see: #187502). Yet the space is just 83cm at its narrowest and 105cm at its widest. I will report this to Northern Gas Networks. On the plus side, the information board - a statutory requirement - is in situ and easy to find. By contrast, CYC continues to flout this requirement at its works. Other image here today: #189548.

[UPDATE: On 23.1.23 this sign had gone and there were works on the cycle way as far as the entrance to the building site (former Nestle factory) so the only space for all non-motorised users was on the pedestrian side (ie on the left on this image).] [Image taken 18.1.23] Wigginton Road, York. I cannot see why this is needed. I cannot see it will be complied with. It adds clutter and further reduces the available space for all users. I will ask for it to be removed.

This area is the narrow part of the High Street. It is a rat run for people avoiding traffic on West street in Banwell. People drive extremely dangerously - yesterday a fellow dog Walker was hit ( I was a witness) as a car charged down the road with no consideration for the marked path or the right of way of pedestrians. It is a lethal situation - this road is used by schoolchildren and parents to get to Banwell school. If this had been a child it could have been a fatality. Another issue is two way traffic on this narrow area means there are regular jams where people are trying to come up and go down which is nearly impossible. If there are any traffic problems in the area Sat navs bring people through here as a short cut. Something must be done to prevent this. There needs to be more warning signs to remind cars of pedestrians, traffic calming, 20mph to reduce the Sat navs sending people around here and thought around one way to prevent congestion. It really is a dangerous situation.

High Street, Banwell is used as a short cut when the main road (A371) is busy. Traffic speeds along High Street, which is used a lot by pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders. A 20mph limit and other traffic calming measures should be in place as it is dangerous at times.

[Image taken 17.1.23] St Hilda’s, Tang Hall Lane, York. [NOTE: No street view at this location] We were able to use these wall bars easily. We don't have extra wide handlebars or anything else that would keep our cycles away from the bars. We also have long D-locks. However, one of the organisers of the warm space/cake and tea event we were here for said she was unable to use them. She could not get her 'York' cycle - a design with a front wicker basket close enough to the bars to be able to use her D-lock. Other image here today: #189540.

Much used pathway for walkers and cyclists linking Hutton to Locking (& on to Weston, Haywood Village etc, Winterstoke Academy) with no actual surface for year round use.

There is no pavement at all between Walton Street and and the start of the pavement at Portishead (junction of Down Road and Charlcombe Rise).

The Secondary School is surrounded by main roads and in particular, the main entrance/exit on to Devonshire Road has a very narrow footpath that includes the main bus stop for children. There is not enough room for the volume of children entering/exiting school along this stretch, other pedestrians and those waiting for the bus. Children are frequently stepping into the road, jostling each other etc
The school has adequate space (all around the perimeter) to allow for a much wider footpath to accommodate the hundreds of children needing to utilise these paths, either by foot or by bike. Please discuss with the school the simple solution to ensure the safety of all children and any other pedestrians and/or road users around this site. The fence needs relocating a minimum of one metre back from its current position and the vegetation needs regular maintenance too - this is allowed to encroach the entire perimeter and further decrease the usable pavement space.

This is the walking route for children to their nearest bus stop for senior school and for residents of the square area to walk into the village and primary school and locals from the village to walk up to the church. It is also where cars often accelerate to dangerous speeds as they come out of the bends on the square and from the bottom of church rd by the Brook. A pavement combined with traffic calming would make the road safer for all and enable more walking.

Pavement runs out a long time before the houses do.

This is a ‘very’ narrow and dangerous stretch of pavement on a busy main Rd with quarry lorries and buses thundering past children as they walk to and from school. Other vulnerable road users such as a neighbour who uses a motorised wheelchair and the elderly are also in danger. I am very concerned that one day a bus or lorry will catch someone’s bag or clothing and drag them into the road as previously happened on a narrow pavement in Long Ashton a few years ago where a lady was killed. Walking with children or children walking independently aren’t safe on the pavement. The problem continues from Flax Bourton church nearly all the way down to the Jubilee PH and you have to walk the stretch to see how dangerous it really is.
Therefore, many people in the village drive our children to secondary school in Backwell or walk them to the bus stop. If the pavement cannot be widened then a 20 mph limit through Flax Bourton village should be installed just like in Long Ashton and other villages in the country that have Main Rds passing through. The road is only going to get busier with airport expansion.

The diabolically bad Dean Lane cycleway. The route is fine. The width is fine. But the dropped entrances to private driveways aren't necessary (Dutch entrance kerbs should be used).

The real problem though is just how steep the dropped entrances are. They're incredible. If you do any kind of normal speed your front wheel actually lifts off the cycleway.

This is appallingly bad work from Stockport Council. They should be ashamed.
