Issue details

Cycling in High Petergate

Purpose of Report: on 3 March 2020 an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) was introduced to allow cycling in High Petergate in a southerly direction (i.e. from Bootham Bar to Duncombe Place) at all times of the day. Previously it was prohibited during footstreet hours (i.e. 10:30 – 17:00).

The ETRO expires on 3 September 2021, and therefore a decision is needed on whether to allowing cycling along High Petergate at all times to continue, or reverting to the former situation.

To help inform this decision, the report will present a technical assessment of the trial, including survey information and a road safety assessment. It will also present feedback from interested parties.

The Executive Member will be asked to make a decision on whether to confirm a permanent Traffic Regulation Order, or to revert to the former situation prohibiting cycling during footsteet hours.
