[Update: hedge was trimmed 12.9.21] [Image taken 23.8.21] Roundabout, Haxby Road/Haley's Terrace, York. Exit from Yearsley Pool. No sightlines due to the overgrown hedge on the right. You can't join the road network to reach the roundabout to reach either Haxby Road southbound (HRs) or Haxby Road northbound (HRn). To reach HBs you could in theory turn left and do a U turn on the road to reach the approach on the far side (where the vehicle is in the image). But space is limited, you will be heading perceptibly uphill as you make the turn and, the real issue of this roundabout, driver speeds are high. In short, everyone exiting here who does not want to turn left has to cross this arm of the roundabout and try to join the road network - and in the right position - in the middle of the next one. I think this would be even more difficult for people who use a cycle as a mobility aid and who cannot walk with it. To reach HBn you would need to turn left and walk your cycle to the crossing point (this would also be a two stage crossing) and finesse your access onto Haxby Road some yards away:
Active travellers are hugely disadvantaged and subject to stress and high driving speeds at this roundabout. People with mobility issues may be completely excluded - the pavements are insufficiently wide for people to turn after accessing them using the drop kerbs. Likewise attempting to cross the two arms of this roundabout here with dependants or children/adults you care for, with a buggy or a shopping trolley is hazardous due to driver speeds (both carriageways) and the lack of space for a turning circle (dropped kerb on the far side).
