    How many people who primarily use footpaths and cycle ways to travel around York did you involve in designing the proposal?

    Traz R asked about 2 months ago

    Good morning, 

    Thank you for getting in touch about this scheme. 

    The team who developed this proposal has extensive and direct experience walking and cycling in and around York and have used this insight, alongside information from previous consultations and best practice engineering guidance, to create the preliminary designs. We are requesting feedback from residents and businesses on the corridor through this consultation. 

    This public consultation is the first time these preliminary designs, which outline our ideas for what would be feasible for this location with the budget available, have been shared. We know there are a huge range of factors that can affect how safe and supported people feel to start walking, cycling or taking the bus. The feedback and suggestions we receive during this consultation are incredibly valuable to help us to decide on the most appropriate measures to take to the next stage of detailed design and develop designs which best meet people's needs on the corridor. 

    Kind regards, 

    The Project Team

    Are the bike lanes segregated or will they just be a slightly wider parking space for vans, delivery drivers or anyone with their hazard warning lights (they think it's a parking permit) switched on? The proposal says the existing on road bike lanes will be widened, white dotted lines a few feet from the side of the road shouldn't be described as bike lanes, we need to realise that in this anti cycling country, York is a very poor place to ride a bike and the only way to improve that is to show people that real bike lanes are not such a bad thing after all. Tadcaster Road is ideal for this.

    Good morning,  

    Thank you for taking the time to get in touch.  

    Because the Tadcaster Road proposals are in a preliminary design stage, we are not able to show the type of protection or exact location where this protection will be added.  

    When the consultation finishes, feedback will be analysed and a decision will be made on which elements of proposals can progress to detailed design. The engineers working on these designs - where the budget and location allow - will add measures to protect the cycle lanes.  

    However, at this stage we anticipate that many of the lanes will be mandatory (i.e. you cannot park or drive in them) and most of the sections of advisory lanes on Tadcaster Road (i.e. shown with a dashed line) will be backed up with double yellow lines to prevent people parking in them. Where required we will also use sections of wands, and some sections of cycle lane which are proposed (i.e. by the College, the Knavesmire and Dringhouses Shops) are entirely off the road.

    Please complete the survey on these proposals if you have not already done so: https://www.yourvoice.westyorks-ca.gov.uk/tadcasterroad/survey_tools/tadcasterroad  

    Kind regards,

    Are the cycle lanes going to be segregated? There are no real cycle lanes on Tadcaster Road now, only dotted lines which mean very little.

    Please note that the survey either on link posted in response to query dated ~23rd Aug and website direct today (31st) is still returning an error message. Please can you ensure that the survey is accessible from the website directly as well via alternative formats.

    David H asked about 2 months ago

    Thank you for getting in touch. 

    Can we please ask for a bit of clarification on what you mean by your first sentence? Such as, can you please clarify as to when you get the 'error' message?

    Also, do you mean to include a paper version of the survey onto the webpage? As that is certainly something we can do.

    Kind regards,

    Why does the survey have an internal server error?

    petejackson745 asked 2 months ago

    Good afternoon,

    Thank you for getting in touch.

    We have just double checked the survey and it seems to be working - please can you try the link again? https://www.yourvoice.westyorks-ca.gov.uk/tadcasterroad/survey_tools/tadcasterroad  

    If it still says 'internal server error' please can you get back in touch and let us know at which point in the survey that message appears? Either we can fix the problem, or we can provide the survey to you in an alternative format, such as over email.

    Kind regards
