175003Photo #175003The protracted roadworks to rebuild and extend the Old Dumbarton Road cycleway continue. The www.roadworksscotland.org/ website said the road closure to create the raised junction would have started by 7 October and Get Ready Glasgow say that the work will be complete before the COP26 diversion route comes into effect.

Meanwhile, no dropped kerbs for pedestrians, no dropped kerbs for cyclists trying to use what bits of cycleway have actually been completed, and motorists continue to speed unhindered around the corners and through the junction.

UPDATE: These issues have now been resolved, see #175144.

174998Photo #174998[UPDATE: This was still here at 16.00ish on 16.10.21.] [Image taken 14.10.21] Duncombe Place junction with Blake Street, York. This sign was in this location at around 17.00 when I passed on my cycle yesterday. I spotted it because people cross from here so I need to be alert to what is happening. Why hasn't it been set back up by whoever is responsible for checking the safety of the city centre or who put it out? What function did it have? If the issue is still live then this sign is not doing its job. See also: #174995 and links.General sign/notice:

174997Photo #174997[UPDATE: A CYC officer said: "The barrier near the bollards on Blake Street is put out by the Council Street Scene staff when the bollards are put in place to offer more visibility of the bollards as they have been hit by a vehicle trying to access the area during the pedestrian hours." But this is hugely unsightly and surely a trip hazard. [Image taken 14.10.21] Blake Street, York outside the tourist info office. Is this an official obstruction or something someone unofficial has moved? It's a hazard. It's an eyesore. It's where many, perhaps even most, visitors and residents will walk if they come into town.

174996Photo #174996[UPDATE: This was still here at 16.00ish on 16.10.21.] [Image taken 14.10.21] Museum Street, York. I picked it up and moved it to one side but there's no obvious number to call. It's on one of the busiest pedestrian/wheelchairing routes into the city centre. It's outside the Visit York, the tourist info shop and offices. It's at one end of the pedestrian area. So why has no-one who has a stake in the attractiveness and safety of this city not picked it up? Other image this sign today: #174995 also context and links.General sign/notice:

174995Photo #174995[Image taken 14.10.21] Museum Street, York. This sign was in this position yesterday at around 17.00. It was still here at 11am today. What hasn't it been spotted and set back up by the people who put it in place. It's outside tourist info. Why hasn't someone from that organisation either set it back up or moved it? And who is it aimed at? It's on a pavement so what subset of pedestrians is it intended to provide guidance for? It's a hazard. It's an eyesore. It further limits the public space that is separate and distinct from areas with motor traffic on and which should, therefore, be safe. It gives (tourists and residents) the impression no-one cares about the appearance of the city or the safety of people walking around it. Might encourage people to drop litter or engage in other anti-social activity. How is this different to flytipping? Other image this sign today: #174996. Other image same issue nearby today: #174998.
