[Image taken 3.9.21] York rail station. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] The social distancing sign is not fulfilling its purpose and is a hazard and an eyesore. Given that face coverings are no longer mandatory and the crush on tra ... [more]

[Update - sign on ground and grit still not removed: #173819] [Image taken 8.7.21] York rail station. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] Social distancing sign. The sign is surely now redundant (previous image: #171576). But the grit/s ... [more]

[Image taken 8.7.21] York rail station. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] Social distancing sign. But who is the contact to ask if it can be removed/checked on and picked up if it falls? LNER? CYC? Why don't organisations label their ... [more]

Bollards too close mean that pedestrians and cyclists limited to half the width of the bridge!

Council has agreed in January 2021 to a trial one way section southbound so that rat running traffic taking a short cut to the ring road is cut out and the cycle crossing on the corner is much safer. It needs to happen!

[Update: #171403] [Image taken 4.7.21.] Rougier Street, York. Redundant sign ie clutter and a potential hazard. It’s been here since at least 13.6.21 – see: #170128. It is now attracting rubbish – in the form of a covid-19 facemask. T ... [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. This was the only way through the cars to the slope – see links below. When I arrived it had a car parked in it. When the driver left I saw there were cones that had been moved out of the way. ... [more]

[Image taken 17.4.21] New Walk junction with Blue Bridge Lane. Covid-19 safety information on a banner on railings where people will see it - at the point they pass on foot or cycle. This is good practice. But it doesn't extend to signage. ... [more]

[Image taken 15.4.21] Marygate car park, York. No mention of people on cycles. No information about the works. An email reply dated 13.4.21 from City of York Council about the decision to remove the covid-19 corridor said: "...appropriat ... [more]

[Image taken 15.4.21] Marygate carpark, York. Signage for pedestrians but not for people on cycles. Plus, people continue to filter through the car park. Due to habit? Because they came through that way? Due to lack of clarity of signage? B ... [more]

[Image taken 15.4.21] Marygate Lane, York. Works continue to remove the covid-19 popup coned corridor through Marygate car park. Despite being a key route for people on cycles, there is no recognition of this: #167245. (Overview): #157644. ... [more]

This is a residential street under constant rat run use, including speeding drivers and lorries. Also suffers from the number of people using it to park their cars to visit the park - there is a dedicated car park on the other side.

Another narrow gate, difficult for all to use. Not wheelchair accessible.

Gate to access path through allotments is very difficult to use for bikes. Needs cattle grid and accessible gate.

Shared path ends before useful link to off road route across to university. could be extended to link Kilburn Rd to Hospital Fields junction

LNER need to make their Azumas able to easily take tandem bicycles so disabled people are not discrimintated against when they ride with thier partners. The old trains allowed us to reach cities on your route and we no longer can, bad for ... [more]

Contraflow cycle route in place but traffic coming other way not expecting it and potential risk at entry and exit of filter on this corner

Need a quiet route for cyclists to get from one side of York centre to the other avoid the very heavy motor traffic on the inner ring road and other busy road. This could be achieved by making a cycle lane through some of the very wide pe ... [more]

This junction is particularly dangerous and intimidating for cyclists. A Cyclops junction here would be very effective especially as it is a main route into the city. Hopefully the Queen St. approach will be improved with the Station Front ... [more]

This section of Bishopthorpe Road has been closed to southbound traffic except for cycles to allow space for social distancing by pedestrians. OK, the cycle lane is closed, but there is still two-way cycling here.

This section of Bishopthorpe Road has been closed to southbound traffic except for cycles to allow space for social distancing by pedestrians. So where is the Except Cycles sign?

This section of Bishopthorpe Road has been closed to southbound traffic except for cycles to allow space for social distancing by pedestrians. There should be an Except Cycles sign.

Hedges of houses on the RH side of Rawcliffe Lane from Malton Way to Rawcliffe Holt are encroaching onto the pavement - there is hardly room for passing at any time and it's a disaster at the moment. From Rawcliffe Grove on the RH side ther ... [more]

This is a residential road and should not be a through route for cars

This is a residential area and should not be a through route for cars to clifton moor shops

Hedges need to be cut back, they are growing over half the footpath leaving no room to pass other pedestrians

The cycle path comes to an end and fires the cycles into two lanes of traffic. Ideally continue the path all the way to Skeldergate Bridge

This is a short section of dual carriage way with no cycle provision - make one lane each way for bikes

Make the main road narrower and create wide cycle lanes on both sides of the bridge. This leaves room for pedestrians on the pavement

This shared riverside cycle and foot path is not working for anyone. It was much safer for all when half was set for cycling and half for walking. It is dangerous with the new format. Especially since Lockdown with more people using this ... [more]

The condition of this road is dangerous for cycling. It needs resurfacing . I have almost fallen off my bicycle trying to keep near the kerbside.

This is a very narrow cycle/walkway. It's not wide enough to stay two meters from people coming in the opposite direction.

This is a very narrow cycle/walkway. It's not wide enough to stay two meters from people coming in the opposite direction.

It's a two way cycle route along a fast road, shared with pedestrians and it's about 1m wide! Cyclists are supposed to dismount if they meet another path user.

Very obstructive barrier, difficult for all users.

Shared path, too narrow to allow social distancing.
