138765Photo #138765Hedges of houses on the RH side of Rawcliffe Lane from Malton Way to Rawcliffe Holt are encroaching onto the pavement - there is hardly room for passing at any time and it's a disaster at the moment. From Rawcliffe Grove on the RH side there is no pathway on the other side of the road as it passes Bootham Junior School boundary. A path resumes before Brompton Road. These hedges should be cut back to expose the full extent of the pavement - not just at ground level!
Linked to this, cycling along Rawcliffe Lane from the junction is affected by several utility covers, gullies which are prone to flooding and traffic calming speed platforms which present a hazard. For safety, health and general amenity in a street that is well walked, the speed limit of 20 mph around the schools could be extended for the full length of the road - even extending along the length of Green Lane, and Eastholme Drive.

121403Photo #121403This shared riverside cycle and foot path is not working for anyone. It was much safer for all when half was set for cycling and half for walking. It is dangerous with the new format. Especially since Lockdown with more people using this. It would be a good idea, for safety reasons if it was enforced that Dogs should be kept on a lead when walking on a shared cycle/foot pathCycleway:

121310Photo #121310Erstwhile cattle creep, now a tunnel under the A1237 (York ring road), opened in late 2019. It is between Main Street (Knapton) and Northfield Lane and is the final part of the Rufforth to Knapton route. It gives: a) Rufforth residents an alternative off-road route to the edge of the urban area which avoids Wetherby Road, thereby encouraging more villagers to cycle or walk (neither was a realistic option for the majority of people using Wetherby Rd), b) York residents a safe, mostly traffic-free route out into the countryside and to the businesses on Northfield Lane.Cycleway:
