[Image taken 25.11.21] Clifton Moor Gate, close to junction with Oakdale Road, York. The two surfaces required to assist blind people to choose the safe side of the route. The left-hand side is for cycles. This is 'skinny' corduroy. It is the surface intended for pedestrians. The tops are rounded and there is just a 50mm gap between the centre of the ridges. On my cycle I find it unsafe and therefore unsettling to use - my wheels get pinched just as they do with longitudinal tarmac damage: #174510. All the corduroy at the otherwise good 'cycle circuit' around Monks Cross retail park is the 'skinny' kind eg: #175979 and #175866. The 'relaxed' or 'wide' paving - tramlines - look like this: #176157. The tops of the ridges are flat. There is 70mm space between the edges of the ridges. Are traffic engineers even aware there are two widths? The Government guidance is 'Guidance on the use of Tactile Paving Surfaces' Chapter 5 is the one for shared use paths.
