Photo #193946

[Image taken 14.5.23] New Lane, Huntington / York. A pedestrian has ignored the signage that would make his route longer – in terms of (crossing and crossing back) time and distance - and is waiting at the closed crossing. The carriageway is reduced to one lane. The path (the signs say it’s shared use: #193943, #193946) is unobstructed. Why were pedestrians (wheelchair users/mobility scooter users/cyclists) prevented from continuing their journey along it? There are no warnings ‘Path closed ahead’ on New Lane. Why couldn’t people on cycles who want to use New Lane carriageway be permitted to continue accessing it as before or continue on the shared use path? NOTE: This sign is so lowkey I had never noticed this was shared use. Plus, the onroad cycling experience along New Lane and access to the junction is complex and unpleasant. Damaged road surface, high motor vehicle speeds, frequent close passing, the requirement to get in lane at the junction, the stench of pollution... Then at the junction if you want to continue in the direction of the city you want to cross the full width to reach the offroad path on the far side. BUT the light timings are very very short. This is a stressful junction where you need to be on high alert at all times. Other image today and links: #193937.
