Insane Council Of The Year

I am saddened to award the Insane Council of the Year award for 2015 to my own council East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC)

Cycle Path 258 (2)

ERYC have painted a cycle lane behind cars parked in a car park. How can anyone be so insane to put a cycle path behind reversing vehicles?

To make matters even worse the car park is next to a school and the cycle lane was installed yesterday two days after British summer time ended.

Subject: Complaint – Cycle Lane in West Green Car Park, Pocklington

Dear ERYC,

I would like to register a formal complaint against ERYC for the new cycle lane in West Green Car Park, Pocklington.

I request that my complaint is dealt with as a matter of urgency before the next term starts at Pocklington School or there is a serious accident.

Could I please refer you to https://andystrangeway.wordpress.com/2015/10/28/insane-council-of-the-year/

Please address the following issues as part of my complaint:

  • The cycle lane is a major safety hazard as it is placed directly behind reversing cars in a dark car park.
  • The car park is situated next to a school.
  • The cycle route ends at the start of the car park.
  • ERYC have wasted tax payers money with the cycle route and the new hand rails.
  • The cycle route, as marked on the car park, does not appear on the definitive map.
  • The signs displayed on the public highway at the entrance to the car park are not contained in the TSRGD2002

Kindest Regards,

Andy Strangeway
