This trial filter on Hartington Road is designed to stop ratrunning through the residential estate, by motorists trying to avoid queues of traffic on the A6. A very good idea IMO.

[Image created 2.2.23] This is the data from the 2021 census about access to a car or van. It shows that one quarter of York residents do not have access to a motor vehicle. I believe this stat needs to be known by everyone who works for th ... [more]

  • Icon 190623 The junction between Dundry Lane and the A38 is very dangerous for all, car, bicycle and pedestrian. Road calming and safe crossings needs to be introduced here.
  • Icon 190622 This style has been changed to a closed gate which means it is not accessible to people with limited mobility or parents with push chairs. This needs to be replaced with an opening gate
  • Icon 190621 Winford Lane is one of 3 options for people to travel from Dundry to Winford - which many parents do twice a day to/from school in Winford. (other routes are along the Wells Road and along the A38). Could Winford Lane be a slow lane? It is little over a mile to Winford, so if it was a slow lane, parents/children could walk/cycle between the two villages.
  • Icon 190620 Start of the 20mph zone coming into the village from the Winford Lane
  • Icon 190619 Start of the 20mph zone when coming from the Wells Road/W Dundry Lane
  • Icon 190618 There should be a footpath through this field from Beechcroft to the Village Hall, Sports Fields and Pre-School on Crabtree Lane. This is essential, as we have no pavements on Church Road, Downs Road and much of Crabtree Lane. A footpath would facilitate a safe route to/from school for children, to/from the church, the bus stop and the pub for everybody else. At present, people have to walk along Downs Road, where there is no pavement, but where large HGVs go up/down the road to the scrap yard. A footpath would transform our village life.
  • Icon 190617 Highridge Road should have a cycleway, so that cyclists can safely cycle down to Highridge Green and connect to the Malago cycle network into bristol Going up hill into the village along Dundry Lane, this should be the start of the 20mph zone
  • Icon 190615 Build outs with cycle filters through them do not work - cars parked behind them make them either impassable or dangerous when rejoining carriageway
  • Icon 190614 Build outs with cycle filters through them do not work - cars parked behind them make them either impassable or dangerous when rejoining carriageway
  • Icon 190592 Narrow road. No pavements. Dangerous for pedestrians
  • Icon 190578 This is a very narrow causeway which only just allows two vehicles to pass. The current speed limit is 60mph. This road is used by pedestrians,cyclists and horseriders accessing Nailsea and cycle routes to Bristol. The speed limit should be reduced to 20mph and have appropriate signage for a cycle/pedestrian lane.
  • Icon 190577 This is a single track lane without designated passing places which is used by pedestrians and cyclists. It is a 'rat run' for vehicles crossing from Nailsea to access the M5 north and Bristol
