[Image taken 16.9.21] Crichton Avenue, York. Other image here today (COUNT): #174176. The angles of access are tight from Foss Islands Way and the incline steep over the railway. Many people push. This is part of the Orbital. People lose th ... [more]

138 years after the Brooklyn Bridge opened, a new bike path takes a lane and @NYC_DOT takes biking across the East River to its logical conclusion. The only question is if one lane will be enough. Review in this t ... [more]

Branch down in Dawsholm Park, but too much time being spent putting up petty signs.

There's a pothole in that muddy puddle, but no warning sign has been provided.

  • Icon 174187 Extremely dangerous for children both on foot and bike sharing a pavement. Children being forced to cycle on the road at peak hour with heavy vehicles and cars driving at speed. Add dedicated cycle lane on footpath and reduce speed along wargrave road in the school zone during school hours as with the primary school.
  • Icon 174185 This stretch is dangerous for the school children cycling and walking along here at peak times. There needs to be a wider path/cycle path before school kids are knocked into the road.
  • Icon 174184 Pavement far too narrow for all the children walking to school. Traffic speeds through the village and it's very dangerous. No alternative route to school. Speed cameras or 20mph limit needed
  • Icon 174183 There is a footpath but it’s also used as a cycle lane, there is not enough space for walking and cycling on this path especially for the hundreds of school children trying to walk or cycle to school safely. The traffic also is allowed to drive at 40mph even during school drop off and pick up times which is really dangerous.
  • Icon 174182 The speeding traffic (almost always well over 30mph) and narrow pavement mean there have been many near misses and often the wing mirrors are dangerously close to pedestrians' heads. Please introduce traffic calming measures to slow the traffic down or make the high street single flow (it is currently single flow through the crossroads. This could be expanded). Many school children walk along this very dangerous path and have no other paths to walk
  • Icon 174181 The pavement beside A321 is a footpath AND cycle path. At peak school times this is insufficient width for children to safely walk next to such a busy road where many do not adhere to speed limits.
  • Icon 174180 Widen the footpath and put bollards up to stop cars mounting the path.
  • Icon 174174 Separated Cycle lane needed, as parked cars narrow the road forcing cyclists to either play chicken with a truck, or go up onto the pavement and risk hitting one of the street lamps or a pedestrian.
  • Icon 174157 Widen the footpath and put bollards up to stop cars mounting the path.
  • Icon 174156 Ewart St is very car-centric and cars often drive quite fast. It should be made one-way heading from Islingword Rd to Southover St, and the lane made less wide to encourage drivers to slow down. This could also allow the footpaths to be widened.
  • Icon 174073 Cars park end-on to the footway, and they overhang the only footway on this stretch of Carrington Rd between Crewe Road and Fettes Ave., reducing it to sub1.5m. This is a peak route for people from the West to get to Inverleith Park and all its activities. It is also the main route for children getting to-from Broughton High School (over 1000 students) plus it is used in evenings and weekends for extra-curricular activities. Simple solution would be to change end-on parking to parallel. Reducing bay numbers, but hey, not the public's problem where you ditch your car! Go by train, bus, bike, foot!
  • Icon 174069 The angle Minshull Street divides off the A6 causes fast turning traffic, dangerous for the many pedestrians crossing the city centre road, and conflict over the bus lane on the left, dangerous for cyclists and making it less useful for buses. A one-way closure arrangement with a contraflow cycle gate would be effective. Auburn Street is available just before the signals at the end of the road as an alternative access towards the Canal Street area for motor vehicles.
