A Vision of Knaresborough Road near the Junction with Birstwith Road

HDCA Supporter Ben Mortimer has produced a vision of how Knaresborough Road could look, if North Yorkshire build the cycleway that they designed back in 2016.

People crossing the road are given priority, and cycling is made safe for all ages and abilities. Even the weather is better than now.

Ben says, ‘Images can be useful to reassure people about proposed changes. They can remove a level of uncertainty, combat some of the negativity, and inspire people to be enthusiastic about the benefits of active travel infrastructure.’

North Yorkshire worked up a design for Knaresborough Road in 2016. Five years have slipped by, and the drawings have remained sitting on the shelf.

A cycleway on Knaresborough Road, from Harrogate Golf Club to the Empress roundabout, would benefit a great number of people, and we feel it should be a priority.
