[Image taken 7.9.21] Marygate car park/Railway Walk, bottom of St Mary's steps, York. [Note: No streetview at this location.] If the barrier-free route to/from the car park, Bootham Terrace, Railway Walk is blocked (see: #173865, #173866, #173867) everyone (wheelchair/mobility scooter users, pedestrians with luggage/buggies and cyclists - two had to uncleat to lift their cycles up as I was taking the image) has to bump up/down this kerb or be excluded from using the route. I also query whether the turning circle is sufficient for people with mobility issues including trike riders to climb the kerb and turn left. On many occasions over the past year the path to the left of the camera position has been blocked. On no occasion has any contractor or CYC employee realised that the kerb is a barrier for many people. The original Scarborough Bridge (around 200m behind the camera position) was replaced with an accessible one. Encountering a kerb at one of the routes it leads to makes a mockery of the project. All images here today and on 6.9.21 see: #173861 and links.
