[Image taken 15.7.21] Marygate car park, York. [Note: No street view at this location.] The only exit/entrance on this side of the car park between it and the key cycle-ped-wheelchair route – including NCN65 – that passes it. Local peop ... [more]

[Image taken 29.5.21] Marygate car park, York. The green vehicle was parked there. But not on a marked space. Car parks are hazardous places. This bit of Marygate car park today felt very unpleasant to be in. The car parking seemed to be a ... [more]

[Image taken 21.5.21] Station Road/Rougier Street/Tanner's Moat junction, York. This small area is on key tourist routed as well as vital permeability for local people to walk, cycle (see: #166237 and #166027) and wheelchair. But it's alway ... [more]

Update: the clutter has reduced see: #170484. [Image taken 21.5.21] Station Road/Rougier Street/Tanner's Moat junction, York. This facility and space is oversubscribed. It’s needed by active travellers included people with limited sight ... [more]

[Image taken 12.5.21] Marygate car park, York. The woman on her own is in the blind corner of the steep slope down from Scarborough Bridge. The two pedestrians in the background, moving sociably and comfortably, take up the available space. ... [more]

[Image taken 8.5.21] Duncombe Place, York. There’s shared use space for the full length of the Minster on this side. This means it’s permeable for people on foot or cycling between Duncombe Place or High Petergate (Bootham Bar end) and ... [more]

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. A very steep slope leads to/from Scarborough Bridge. To get up a slope on a cycle you need a runup and to be positioned correctly. Wider, longer cycles (see: #165610), and those with trailers ( ... [more]

[Image taken 1.5.21] Marygate car park, York. The space here is ‘all directions’: up and down the slope, towards and away from the camera, and ‘all people’ – on cycles, on e-scooters and cycles, in wheelchairs, on trikes, with tra ... [more]

[Image taken 1.5.21] Marygate car park, York. From this: #166422 and this: #157641 to this. Image showing what we’ve lost (to car parking). The width is now 330cm. But that’s the actual not the usable width. The usable width is a maximu ... [more]

[Image taken 1.5.21] Marygate car park, York. The dynamic envelope of someone cycling a standard width cycle is 1m. Yet the space here is just 1.35m to be shared between all users. The feet of the barriers and the sandbags are trip hazards. ... [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]

Cambridge retail park A rising bollard in the car park has been removed in defiance of the planning regulations and the retail park has applied for retropsective permission to make that permanent. I think that will lead to it being used ... [more]

The traffic lights at this junction do not detect cycles approaching from Chelsfield Grove onto Maudeth Rd West - reported to GMUTC. Also when the pedestrian lights are green to cross Mauldeth Rd West this would be an ideal and safe opportu ... [more]

Walking to school, Warwick Road style. Grab a chance to dash across the traffic (no zebra crossing), breathe in the fumes of queuing rat-runners, hope nobody hoots their horn at you. How can anyone think this is acceptable for children? @Tf ... [more]

This is a terrible section to cycle. At rush hour it is a major cycle route towards Waterloo bridge, but cyclists feel intimidated by the sheer amount of Taxis blocking the road, pulling out on you and doing U-Turns. Coupled with pedestrian ... [more]

Congestion

Crofton Lane was surprisingly busy with motor traffic. Unfortunately I missed the turn for the seafront path and had to endure the traffic all the way along Salterns Road. Proper cycle signage may have helped rather than relying on Sustrans ... [more]
