We're proposing the installation of segregated cycle lanes along Hospital Fields Road, to separate cyclists from the carriageway.
Hospital Fields Road gets a high volume of cycling traffic, as it's an important part of the East-West Cycle Route that links Millennium Bridge to the Imphal Barracks.
The aim of the scheme is to improve the safety and usability for cyclists by providing segregated cycle lanes in the eastbound direction.
We want to hear your thoughts on these proposed changes prior to formal decisions being made.
The works aim to improve the safety and usability of Hospital Fields Road for cyclists. In order to do this, we propose the following changes:
- an eastbound segregated cycle lane - there are 4 separate options that we'd like to hear your opinions about, which will be presented in more detail in the survey
- the removal of 26 on-street parking spaces, 22 on the north side and 4 on the south side - this is essential to reclaim space to make room for the new cycle lanes
- the reduction of the north side pavement to create space for the cycle lanes
More information on the proposed works can be found in the Agenda, decisions and minutes from the Executive Member for Transport Decision Session, held on 14 February 2022.
Take part in the consultation
We want to hear your thoughts on the proposed changes to the area, and any further comments you would like to share with us about this scheme at this early stage. The survey should take 5 to 10 minutes to complete.
The Hospital Fields Road Improvements consultation will run from 21 November to 5.00pm on Monday 19 December 2022.
At the end of the consultation feedback will be reported to the Executive Member for Transport to decide which elements of design proposals will be further developed.
This scheme is part of the government’s Active Travel Programme, shaping the future of walking, cycling and active travel in York.
