[Image taken 14.6.21] Near Grimston House, Vanbrugh Way, University of York, York. Good practice: using green tarmac to link sections of a through campus cycle route over a road. I think this would be very helpful at Bootham Terrace/Longfie ... [more]

[Image taken 14.6.21] Near Grimston House, Vanbrugh Way, University of York, York. Good practice: using green tarmac to link sections of a through campus cycle route over a road. The road users' view: #170178. All images today: #170159 and ... [more]

[Image taken 14.6.21] Grimston House, University of York. Further racks and a public pump (best practice, see also: #170170) have been added to this location. Other examples of good practice here today: #170171 and links. All images today: ... [more]

[Image taken 14.6.21] Spring Lane Building, University of York, York. Best practice: a sticker on the top bar of the cycle rack and a clear and large symbol on the ground. Plus there's lots of space to enable the person to move him- herself ... [more]

[Image taken 14.6.21] Spring Lane Building, University of York, York. Best practice: marking the top bar of the cycle rack and painting a clear and large symbol on the ground. See also: #170171 and links.

[Image taken 14.6.21] Spring Lane Building, University of York, York. Best practice: often the ends of lines of racks or the outsides of groups have additional space or odd-sized spaces that can be designated for wider or longer cycles, for ... [more]

[Image taken 14.6.21] Spring Lane Building, University of York, York. Best practice: sticker on the top bar designating this Sheffield rack for oversized rigs reinforced by a painted symbol on the ground. See also: #170171 and #170173. Othe ... [more]

[Image taken 14.6.21] Spring Lane Building, University of York, York. Two examples of best practice - though, as with all the examples on the campus, you have to know they exist and where to find them. A designated disabled space (see: #170 ... [more]

[Image taken 14.6.21] Mathematics building, University of York, York. A cycle parking space designated for disabled users - clearly visible due to the painted symbol on the ground. There's also a sticker on top bar of the rack. Plus a publi ... [more]

[Image taken 14.6.21] Vanbrugh College, University of York, near the radio station. This rack is stickered as for use by disabled users. However, it is just a sticker - no modification. For all users, the racks are too close to the wall, pl ... [more]

[Image taken 14.6.21] Cinder Lane, York. I was unable to carry my cycle down these steps: they were too steep. I removed all my panniers to enable my partner to do it. Other images this issue: #170167 and links.

[Image taken 14.6.21] Cinder Lane, York. Shortcut between Railway Terrace and the rail station over the main line – if you can carry your cycle up and down steps. The gulley for wheeling a bike is on the 'down' side. The development of Yo ... [more]

[Image taken 14.6.21] Leeman Road junction with Station Avenue, York. Two fallen signs. Plus the push button device to activate the temporary toucan has been turned such that someone in this contraflow cycle lane cannot reach it. When I rep ... [more]

[Image taken 14.6.21] Rougier Street, York. Redundant sign. Potential hazard. Other images this issue: #170164 and links.

[Image taken 14.6.21] Toft Green, York. Sign not doing its job. A trip hazard. Other images this issue today: #170165, #170166. This issue all dates search on ‘fallensigns’ and ‘redundantsigns’. All images today: #170159 and links.

[Image taken 14.6.21] Marygate car park, York. Untrimmed growth reduces the available space and makes active travel a less inviting option. A child and an adult could not pass through here in protective formation ie side by side. Earlier im ... [more]

Maybe it's because I don't enter Speirs Wharf from Craighall Road very often, but I almost cycled down the cobbled slope since I was this time going to turn left down the ramp to Garscube Road. The layout here could be better. The steps ... [more]

Again I forgot to approach this gate on the footway, since there is no dropped kerb to assist with getting around it from the carriageway.

The cycleway on Craighall Road continues as far as the entrance to Speirs Wharf. This is not a good place to cross the road, but it looks like traffic signals will be installed.

A new section of cycleway has appeared on Craighall Road and the correct Cycleway tactile slabs have been used. I'm going to have to have another look at that central dividing strip though. The surface has been left incomplete.

The North Canal Bank Street cycleway joins to a cycleway along part of Craighall Road, but the cycleway swaps to having the cycle side on the opposite side of footway. I'm guessing that this isn't complete and the traffic signals will be re ... [more]

A raised crossing at this side access point, but not quite a continuous footway/cycleway.

A short diversion around some ongoing work, but the uneven surface and narrow width make it rather awkward to negotiate.

A short but awkward diversion around some ongoing work, see #170152.

The correct Cycleway tactile slabs have arrived in North Canal Bank Street and await fitting in place of the incorrect corduroy Hazard tactiles.

Pinkston Road still closed as Sighthill redevelopment continues.

Guidance Path tactiles installed just a few metres away from the correct Cycleway type.

It’s already been tried and failed in Northern Ireland with ebikes thankfully the law changed last year. It killed the ebike and cycling growth here. https://t.co/q3WNksPzaJ Somewhere in Northern Ireland!

[Image taken 13.6.21] Rougier Street, York. I caught my wheel on the protruding base of this barrier as I passed. It started to fall on me. It’s unstable. If a child knocked it or if someone with limited or no sight caught it with their c ... [more]

[Image taken 13.6.21] Rougier Street, York. This is one of the fallen signs and cone I have been trying to report to the Environment Agency/their contractors. On 12.6.21 they were here: #170004 and I moved them to the location in today's im ... [more]

[Image taken 13.6.21] Rougier Street, York. Three completely flat signs and one without the information side showing: so four temporary signs not doing their job and therefore creating an obstruction and a hazard. This street is designated ... [more]

[Image taken 13.6.21] Rougier Street, York. Is this the number to ring to report a problem with this sign? I doubt it. I tried one of the three numbers (see: #170088) on the sign on the nearby compound yesterday but the hazards were all sti ... [more]

[Image taken 6.6.21] Bootham Terrace, York. The railings to/from the underpass below the York-Scarborough rail line have been removed. See previous layout: #36893. The covid signs see: #168739 have gone too. Perhaps other changes are planne ... [more]

[Image taken 6.3.21] Ron Cooke Hub, University of York. This Sheffield rack has not been moved to accommodate cycles that are longer in front. However, it has been designated an 'oversized' cycle parking space with a bespoke sticker and gra ... [more]

[Image taken 24.9.20] Scarborough Bridge, York. Puddling on the new bridge (completed February 2019). The water remains after rain stops. It hugely reduces the usable width for pedestrians, cyclists and wheelchair users. Puddling at other e ... [more]

[More recent image: #170159] [Image taken 25.5.21] Marygate car park, York. The access/exit is narrow. It is reduced to just 96cm by the foliage that has not been cut back. More exits images here today see: #169690 and links. Noticeboards: ... [more]

The cycle track alongside Fountainwell Road ends here, with some Guidance Path tactile paving. It looks suspiciously like it will go no further on this side, and it crosses over to a new path on the other side of what can be quite a busy (a ... [more]

The new cycleway along St Rollox Drive leads onto this footway which has not been upgraded. It is obstructed ahead by utilities work and the only way onto the road is across the grass. There's also a 'No Cycling' sign on the back of the ... [more]

A 'No Cycling' sign on the path that now leads to the cycleway adjacent to St Rollox Drive. UPDATE 2021: The path has now been rebuilt, see #167693.

No Cycling sign at one end of path from Fountainwell Road to Keppochhill Road. There isn't one at other end or anywhere else on path. Useful cross-city link, and could do with dropped kerb too. UPDATE 2021: The path has now been rebuilt, ... [more]

The junction of Fountainwell Road and St Rollox Drive, seen from the old footpath along the edge of Sighthill Cemetery. The start of the cycleway can be seen, and this is the only access. UPDATE 2021: The cycle path has now been extended ... [more]

Effectively the end of the new cycleway alongside St Rollox Drive, with no way back onto the road and only a connection to the old footpath. UPDATE 2021: The path has now been extended, see #170148.

Update see: #170133] [Image taken 9.6.21] Rougier Street, York. Fallen sign. Not doing its job. Obstructing a busy pavement. Reported to the Environment Agency as it is part of a flood works diversion. See also: #170003 and links.

  • Icon 170146 There is a well used "natural path" across the grass from St Luke's Church towards the bus stop. Can this be made into a well defined metalled path and the grass replanted beside the path? It needs to be side enough for tweo or even three people as the route is very popular.
  • Icon 170145 The pavement is too narrow here outside the pub on the corner at the bottom of Islingword Street even when the pub benches are not being used. Add a build-out on Islingword Street round this corner to allow passers-by to pass by without stepping into the road.

  • Icon 170139 Add a build-out to widen the pavement on Southover Street outside this Fish and Chip shop (Sea Breeze) on Islingword Road so there is room for people to queue or wait outside while their order is being prepared, and for passers-by to pass by without stepping into the road
  • Icon 170138 Add a build-out outside the Dover Castle on Islingword Street and on Southover to allow people to congregate and socialise safely while letting passers-by pass by without stepping into the road.
