[Image taken 25.1.23] Outside St Luke's church, Burton Stone Lane, junction wiith Shipton Street, York. Centreline tarmac damage at a road narrowing. That infra requires people on cycles to move out into the carriageway. Cyclists ought to be riding assertively here ie taking the lane to stop a motorist trying to squeeze past. And then to hold that line and keep at least 1.5m away from the parked vehicles in case someone opens a door from the inside or steps out from between them. Then there's that access cover. Slippery when wet/icy and with an upstand around the edge that can cause an instant flat tyre. (Note that the tarmac around it on the road side is already cracking.) In short, this damage is where someone on a cycle, including with machines with, three wheels might be riding. It's a substantial hazard and I will report it. I thought this section was resurfaced late last year. Has it failed already? Or was it done in halves? Other image today and links: #190043.
