  • Ouse Bridge turning onto North Street nightmare

    Kate Ravilious // 1 thread

    Coming over Ouse Bridge and wanting to turn right onto North Street is very difficult and disconcerting for cyclists. You end up stranded in the middle of the road, with busy traffic passing on both sides, whilst waiting for a gap in the traffic in order to go right. It would be massively safer if some cycle priority lights could be added to enable cyclists to get across the junction before the traffic starts to move. These make a huge difference on the Skeldergate side of the junction.

  • Windmill Lane - dangerous junction

    Kate Ravilious // 1 thread

    Really dangerous junction for cyclists trying to get from Windmill Lane across Hull Road (or in reverse). Cars come into David Lloyd at speed, and don't expect to find cyclists or pedestrians crossing the road at this point.

  • Turning right on to the orbital route up Regent Street from Lawrence Street

    Created by Mr Andrew Woodhouse // 1 thread

    When trying to turn right up Regent Street to join the orbital route from Lawrence Street cyclists have to use the main traffic straight on lane indicating right and stopping at the junction, with no safe marked or protected bay to direct traffic from either direction around them. Making the cyclist exposed and also confusing and frustrating drivers.
    Coming up Lawrence street I often feel intimidated by drivers as I indicate right and pull into the straight on lane, I guess as they don't understand that cyclists can turn right and cars can't, there is no indication to the traffic that this is possible, with either road markings approaching or at the junction. Also when turning right the cyclist is faced with oncoming traffic itself trying to turn right, not understanding why the cyclist is positioned where they are in the road, and maybe also taking up the possibly safe space that the cyclist needs to use to get out of the traffic.

  • Route 66 Junction with University Road and Green Dykes Lane

    Created by Mr Andrew Woodhouse // 1 thread

    When following the Route 66 in either direction near the North West corner of the University and trying to leave it to go up University Road to Green Dykes lane cyclists are pushed on to the road near the brow of a hill, where there is little or no visibility of traffic on one or more directions. Also coming from the East cyclists are sent down the hill to then cycle up the hill again, or forced to cycle along an often muddy path.
    If there were a paved route from the 66 to the brow of the hill where University Road becomes Green Dykes lane, this would give cyclists a route to a point where they could safely see in either direction to join the road, or cycle on the unofficial cycle path (dirt/gravel/grass route) down the east side of Green Dykes Lane.
