[NOTE: Terry Avenue closed to diverted motor traffic and reopened to non motorised-users on Friday, 8 July 2022. (Search on 'clementhorpefloodworks'.) Non motorised users including the most vulnerable by age, health, etc, were unable to use the democratic, motor traffic-free space for 14 months. But there is no legacy. Terry Ave was not flood defended. No alternative accessible, direct, inclusive, alternative was created for when the Ouse overflows its banks here and makes using the route impossible. York residents were sold down the river.] Update: Terry Ave closed for around a year on Monday 17 May 2021. York Cycle Campaign overview and cycle diversion info: Environment Agency site (inexplicably the front page uses American spellings)] [Image is of the document AOD_20_00269-PEDESTRIAN_AND_CYCLIST_DIVERSION-2330317 published on the York planning site on 03 Feb 2021]. It shows the signs required to enable people to find and follow the proposed - not yet agreed (19.2.21) alternative to Terry Avenue, York during the Clementhorpe flood works. The document shows the complexity of the route. It is an 'alternative' to the linear, junction-free, flat, scenic, sociable, accessible Terry Avenue. The fact 30 new cycle-specific signs are required illustrates some of the reasons this route is not fit for purpose in my view. You also need to cross a major road, make around 4 right turns, exit onto busy roads, gain height, lose height... All documents associated with the Clementhorpe flood works are on the York planning portal reference 19/00570/FUL The first document on the site dates from Thu 21 Mar 2019. Despite the passing of at least two years no safe, accessible route has materialised. See also #164634. For results of an informal count (Sunday) 28.3.21 see: #166370. For typical Terry Ave riders see: #164094, #165764, #165153. For issues and updates search on TerryAvenuelivediversion.
