Scarborough Bridge to Bootham Park Cycle Route Improvements
i. The Executive Member noted the results of public consultation on these proposals;
ii. Approval was granted to the proposed schemes as outlined and progress to detailed design in option 1;
iii. Approval was granted for the construction of the proposed schemes as outlined, if no significant changes are needed as a result of the detailed design;
iv. That as part of the Stage 3 Safety Audit the Council monitors the use of the path by both cyclists and pedestrians;
v. That officers consider the placement of street lighting to ensure future proofing wherever possible.
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.
