City of York council is set to invest £50k to improve or install new pedestrian crossings on several streets in York. These include
- a potential new zebra crossing on Heworth Green
- improvements to a central refuge on Wetherby Road near Danebury Drive
- pavement build-outs on Huntington Road near Lowther Street
- slight alterations to the crossing and link path on University Road opposite Heslington Hall
- improvements to the crossings on New Lane in Huntington either side of the Jockey Lane mini-roundabout
- provision of a new section of footway on Main Street in Copmanthorpe.
Several other sites will be improved using the city’s dropped kerb programme.
