  • Monkgate cycle markings needed

    Kate Ravilious // 1 thread

    Most cyclists are turning right here but there is no provision for cyclists - infrastructure required at this busy junction.

  • Millfield Lane

    Kate Ravilious // 1 thread

    Millfield lane suffers badly from traffic rat-running along, to avoid congestion on Hull Road. Much of the traffic travels at well over the speed limit. Local residents are petitioning for speed control measures. We'd like to see the road bollarded off so that only residents can access it, and we also believe that Millfield Road could then become an excellent cycle alternative route instead of Hull Road.

  • Lilac Avenue crossing

    Kate Ravilious // 1 thread

    Traffic is going fast and frequently jumps the red lights at this crossing. The crossing is a vital place for both cyclists and pedestrians to cross the road. Crossing reminder signs are needed, or some other form of traffic calming before the lights.

  • Hull Road cycle lane required

    Kate Ravilious // 1 thread

    This road is incredibly dangerous for cyclists. Lorries from the skip/refuse centre and cars all drive fast and don't give cyclists sufficient space. A segregated cycle lane is desperately needed.

  • parking on Heslington Road

    Kate Ravilious // 1 thread

    New parking provision for cars is extremely dangerous for cyclists, forcing cyclists out into the road. Illegal parking still persists along this road too.

  • Heslington Lane cycle path

    Kate Ravilious // 1 thread

    Cyclists often use the road instead of the cycle path alongside Heslington Lane. This is most likely because of the poor linkage at the eastern end of the cycle path, where it is difficult and dangerous for cyclists to rejoin the road, and cyclists/pedestrians are not given priority when crossing the road into the university.

  • Fishergate Gyratory nightmare!

    Kate Ravilious // 2 threads

    The Fishergate Gyratory is a complete nightmare for all cyclists and very dangerous. Crossing the lanes of the busy dual carriage-way is dangerous and drivers show little awareness or patience with cyclists. The entire junction needs rethinking.

  • Cemetery Road turning

    Kate Ravilious // 1 thread

    Scary to turn right onto Cemetery Road, from Fulford Road. Cyclists are left very vulnerable in the middle of a busy road, and the middle of the road is very uneven, increasing the risk of losing balance while trying to manoeuvre. Cycle lane needed here.

  • Fishergate pot holes

    Kate Ravilious // 1 thread

    Terrible pot holes close to the kerb. Very dangerous for cyclists, particularly on this narrow and busy stretch of road.

  • Skeldergate Bridge

    Kate Ravilious // 0 threads

    It is impossible to travel on a cycle from Clifford's Tower to the other side of Skeldergate Bridge, without going around the entire Fishergate Gyratory - a really unpleasant and unnecessarily long experience. The alternative is to push your cycle over the bridge using narrow pavements and being hemmed in by barriers: impossible for people with limited mobility, or non-standard cycles.

  • New Walk cleaning

    Kate Ravilious // 0 threads

    All the riverside walk/cycle routes become dangerous and slippery after flooding, and need prompt cleaning with a hose, and drains unblocking.

  • Hospital Fields Road barrier

    Kate Ravilious // 0 threads

    The padlocked barrier at the end of Hospital Fields Road is inaccessible for non-standard cycles, and difficult to pass through for anyone except the most able-bodied cyclists.

  • Bishy Road traffic

    Kate Ravilious // 0 threads

    Bishy Road is dominated by traffic at the expense of cyclists and pedestrians

  • Millfield Road

    Kate Ravilious // 0 threads

    Drivers tend to turn left here without indicating, making it very dangerous for cyclists

  • Lendal Gyratory

    Kate Ravilious // 1 thread

    Removal of cycle lane leaves cyclists exposed in the approach to the advanced stop box. Extreme danger for cyclists because of vehicles switching lanes to get around the junction.

  • Micklegate Bar

    Kate Ravilious // 0 threads

    Micklegate bar is very dangerous for cyclists in all parts of the intersection.

  • Blossom Street

    Kate Ravilious // 0 threads

    Blossom Street dangerous for cyclists because buses and cars cut across cycle path. There needs to be proper segregation.

  • Tadcaster Road off-road cycle path

    Kate Ravilious // 0 threads

    Off road cycle lane worse than useless. Stops for side-roads, then has a 'give way' onto a signalised junction with a side road.

  • Wilton Rise

    Kate Ravilious // 0 threads

    Private road. Very dangerous for cyclists because of the large number of deep potholes
