Thirkleby Way/Farndale Avenue Highway Condition.

We the undersigned petition the council to attend to the disgraceful condition of the road surface of Thirkleby Way, Osbaldwick and Farndale Avenue which are becoming unsafe to walk across, cycle and drive along. Both are highways of concrete sectional road that have been overlaid with tarmac some decades ago a process that was never successful, the tarmac overlay needs scraping off and the concrete road underneath renovated. It is disappointing that once again these sections of highway have been overlooked by CYC Highways Officers for attention in the current Highway Maintenance Programme and this petition is to draw attention to this omission and request effective renovations of these highways without further delay.

City of York Council has no sensible policy for dealing with concrete sectional roads and this ought to be a useful trial, it is understood that there are companies who specialise in such work and the excellent condition of the other lengths of Thirkleby Way concrete road that weren’t covered in tarmac previously indicate that the underlying road is in a good condition.

No sensible reason has been given for the omission of these sections of highway from maintenance works, it is utterly ridiculous to keep on with minor repairs to these roads as the previous head of highway maintenance agreed before he left CYC, I dealt with one old lady tripping when crossing this road 10 years ago now and nothing has been done to sort this - at least this petition will force highways officers to explain the situation.

This ePetition ran from 23/05/2022 to 04/07/2022 and has now finished.
