[Image taken 11.1.22] York: Marygate Lane junction with Railway Walk (to the right). The tunnel to Bootham Terrace under the York-Scarborough rail line is behind the camera position. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] Steps (with cycle runner) to St Mary's at first opening on left: #175872. I went out to take images here on a very quiet and sunny day ahead of the works starting (an email from CYC said it would be 17.1.22) on the ped-cycle crossing over Bootham. The aim is to link the rail station and the hospital ( The long-term plan is to extend the traffic-free route between the rail line and the hospital ( The history, options and decision on the Scarborough Bridge to Bootham Park Cycle Route Improvements are here: "ii. "Reason: The recommended schemes will enhance and promote a cycle/pedestrian and accessible route from York Station to Bootham Park and York Hospital, whilst complementing the recent upgrade of Scarborough Bridge and it’s approaches from the city centre. The improvements to this route will improve access and options for active travel users – cyclists and pedestrians, as well as those with mobility issues." Approval was granted to the proposed schemes as outlined and progress to detailed design in option 1;" There will be a slope in place of the steps. I am concerned about the width of the slope, the lighting, and the effect of new users on the space here as it is often already very busy. The cobbles are to remain. Some people cut through the car park to avoid them. Other images here today: #177536, #177539, #177541, #177542, #177543, #177544, #177545. Other images today: #177526 and links. More images this series: #177760 and links. My concerns about the junction over Bootham with the cycle-specific light and the early green: #191027.
