[Image taken 18.9.21] Haxby Road, York. Wands - light segregation. The speed limit is 30mph despite there being a school here (Joseph Rowntree www.josephrowntree.co.uk/). Other images near the school: # and links. Other images today: #17430 ... [more]

[Image taken 18.9.21] Haxby Road, York. Overview of the junction looking northbound. The side entry to/from Joseph Rowntree School is just out of shot on the right-hand side of the image to the right of the traffic light. The coach shows ho ... [more]

[Image taken 18.9.21] Haxby Road, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this exact vantage point.] In contrast to the other side (see: #174339), the only crossing here is for pedestrians, so there are only pedestrian crossing lights. See #174335 ... [more]

[Image taken 27.8.21] Stirling Road, Clifton Moor, York. More paint and two more cycle symbols. Perhaps in such a wide expanse of tarmac the paint helps people on machines that take up less space orient/position themselves? If everyone used ... [more]

[Image taken 27.8.21] Stirling Road, Clifton Moor, York. Detail of paint markings in #173594. More recent cycle-friendly, cycle journey-encouraging measures close by #169455. Other images here today: #173593 and links.

[Image taken 27.8.21] Stirling Road, Clifton Moor, York. The paint shows that people on cycles are permitted to use the roundabout, perhaps also that they do. Does it therefore also encourage cycling? It doesn't give any protection. Other i ... [more]

[Image taken 27.8.21] Stirling Road, Clifton Moor, York. Cycle lane on exit from Screwfix. Unsegregated. Streetview shows the markings were added between May 2012 and Jun 2015. To turn right I would not use the 'round the outside' rings, I' ... [more]

[Image taken 25.7.21] The approach (on both sides) to the pedestrian crossing between Dunelm and the shared-used cycle-ped-wheelchair link between this retail park and the neighbouring one (see: #161559), has been resurfaced. It had fissure ... [more]

[Image taken 20.7.21] Station Avenue, York. If the road were always this empty, exiting the cycle contraflow on Leeman Road whether to cross to the furthest carriageway or to join the nearside lane would not be the risky manoeuvre it actual ... [more]

[Image taken 20.7.21] Memorial Gardens/Leeman Road, York. Context image for #172324 to show the crossing that is hidden when the foliage is not kept cut back. This junction is not well designed as it is a popular route for pedestrians. More ... [more]

[Image taken 23.4.21] Crossing on south side of Tesco roundabout, Clifton Moor Gate, York. It is quicker and more direct to cross here than on the other side of the roundabout. (But there's scope for user conflict at this drop kerb see: #16 ... [more]

[Image taken 30.3.21] The gas works completed, Micklegate Bar, York is again open to people on cycles. (Closed Bar with misleading signage see: #164586.) Bar from other side see: #166496

[Image taken 20.3.21] York. Contraflow cycle lane signs both sides of Tanner Row, York at the approach for all traffic on Wellington Row/North Street (direction of Rougier Street). Despite the signs, the lane is deliberately obstructed by d ... [more]

[Image taken 20.3.21] York. Contraflow cycle lane signs both sides of Tanner Row viewed on approach from North Street (direction of Wellington Row) if you were passing a vehicle parked in the space on the left. The route is very popular wit ... [more]

[Image taken 19.3.21] View from Lendal Bridge (Station Road) towards the War Memorial on the Lendal gyratory, York. It's a noticeable incline. Particularly if you start from a stationary position at these lights. There are bus stops on the ... [more]

[Image taken 19.3.21] The Lendal Bridge end of the Lendal gyratory, York. A very cyclist-unfriendly environment. The entrance to-exit from the Tanner's Moat cycle cut-through is just visible close to the left of the York Pullman vehicle. Se ... [more]

[Image taken 19.3.21] View from the ASL on Station Ave/Station Road, York, direction of Rougier Street. The bus stops on the left-hand side are very well used. The carriageway is narrow. Drivers have been 'held up' at myriad sets of lights ... [more]

[Image taken 19.3.21] View of the ASL on Station Ave/Station Road, York, direction of Rougier Street, from the right turn on Lendal gyratory. A cyclist cannot access the safety of the ASL unless s/he was ahead of the traffic coming round th ... [more]

[Image taken 2.3.21] Bridge Lane, York alongside York Hospital. The railings enable you to see through to the grounds of the hospital. It is better lit and feels safer than with the hoardings that obscure your view and are only lit for part ... [more]
