[Image taken 29.5.21] Station Avenue/Station Road, York near the city walls. This sign seems at odds with that in: #169848. Also, people on cycles displaced from the riverside are pushing their cycles here, so it's not just pedestrians that need assistance. Given the number of concurrent diversions on this side of the river this year and next for people on foot, on cycles and in wheelchairs (see: #166177, #168886, #169845) I feel there has not been enough consideration for signage and mapping. With colour coding for key destinations. For example, I was asked yesterday at the Millennium Bridge by two sets of people on cycles how to get to ‘town’. And again this morning in Marygate car park. Yet the need is not limited to tourists. Locals and people who work/study here need clarity too. Forward planning means local people would know that a green square, for example, on a sign means Rowntree Park, blue the Millennium Bridge, a red spot the city centre, etc. I could then have advised all three sets of visitors to follow the red dots.
