Scenes from the Hierarchy of Provision

As we know York Council is firmly committed to a Hierarchy of Provision which puts pedestrians first, then cyclists, with car drivers way down the list of priorities.

In fact York is so pedestrian-friendly that it even supplies gym equipment on its public footpaths, allowing wheelchair users and people with twin pushchairs to tone up their muscles prior to attempting to get past any unusual obstructions which might block their way.

Location: the public footpath between Keats Close and Milton Carr.

Cyclists enjoy similar design consideration. These cycle lanes can clearly be seen to come in front of places for parking vehicles, so in that sense the cyclist definitely comes first. St Leonard's Place and Bootham.
