City of York to grit it cycle ways again this winter

The City of York Council plans to grit its cycle routes this year after a successful trial last winter.

It has been reported that cyclists and pedestrians have told the council that this had made it safer for them to get around, boosted confidence and made them feel that cycle routes were as important as roads.

The trial saw two small gritters treat the city’s most popular cycling and walking routes – across Scarborough Bridge, the route between Wigginton Road and Osbaldwick, and the routes along the riverside in Fulford and from Tadcaster Road to Skeldergate – including Millennium Bridge.

“The city of York Council Cycle Officer had feedback from cyclists which can be summarised as the trial is a vast improvement and that they’d like it extending to other parts of the network which were not included in the trial,” said a report prepared for a council meeting.
