[Image taken 18.9.21] Rawcliffe Park and Ride, Rawcliffe, York. I used my phone to show the depth of the drop. The drop-off is 7.5cm. A nasty shock for someone on a cycle plus it could cause damage. The problem is not visible from the appro ... [more]

[Image taken 8.9.21] Haxby Road, York at exit from/access to Foss Islands Way. Someone has cut the briars [see: #173640] that came over the hoardings of the Cocoa Works site and created potentially painful hazards for pedestrians. The hoard ... [more]

[Image taken 11.7.21] George Hudson Street (direction of Rougier Street), York. This oversized sign is angled away from the road which means it may not be seen by those it is aimed at. It needs moving: to make it visible, to remove the obst ... [more]

Update 1.7.21. Signs and work area had gone. [Image taken 29.6.21] Bootham Terrace, York. Fallen cone. Deconstructed sign. One is not doing its job and is therefore clutter. One is a hazard. Other images this issue, this location today see: ... [more]
