[Image taken 9.11.22] Crichton Avenue/Denning’s Yard Access/Wigginton Road, York. This is a route for non motorised users. Reasons for people using it include: culture, education, food and other shopping, gardening (there are allotments over the light controlled pedestrian crossing), leisure/recreational (it is part of the York Orbital), physical and mental health, sport (there's a pool 1km away), and to the hospital (work, visiting, patients)... Yet it is 370cm actual width. The usable width is rather less: 370cm - (115cm + 50cm) = 205cm. [Table 5-3: Additional width at fixed objects in LTN 1/20] A cyclist on a standard cycle requires around 1m when moving. More uphill - lateral movement (wobbling). Cyclists travelling side by side (on a level surface) require a minimum space of 1.0m each plus 0.5m separation between them ie 2.5m. [5.2 Dynamic kinetic
envelope of the user in LTN 1/20] For a busy shared use route with a camber, blind bend, noticeable incline... I was here max 15 minutes. In this time in addition to people on cycles, on foot, with dogs, with buggies, with children walking independently, 3 people in wheelchairs (being pushed or self driving) crossed the space with the chalk numbers as one person pushing an empty wheelchair.
