[Image taken 16.2.21] York, Monks Cross retail park has a two-way cycle route around the perimeter. At the point pedestrians may be crossing there is tactile paving in the cycle route. There are no pedestrians crossing signs. It is not clear that pedestrians may be crossing - the blocks of white paint are simply that. They do not conjure up an image of a zebra crossing. The clues from the car park are missing - there is no zebra only hatching. Parked vehicles block views and obscure clues. Plus, as pedestrians can approach from either side, the person on the cycle could be focusing on one side and miss what clues there are. Inexperienced or very young cyclists might not realise the white blocks mean they need to look out for and be prepared to give way to someone crossing. The planters could obscure someone small or someone in a mobility scooter/wheelchair, or a buggy that extends ahead of the person pushing it. Pedestrians may not be aware of the cycle route.
