    Has there ever been discussion with NYCC about changing the crossing on the Ripley (western) side of the A61, where the Greenway crosses it ? I always think having the path sloping down relatively steeply straight to the crossing from the gate is a disaster waiting to happen. Surely a staggered path or slope to a barrier would be safer ?

    Sorry I didn’t see this until now. I’m sure the issue has been raised with North Yorkshire, but as ever nothing has been done.

    I’ll ask if anyone else knows more.

    Yes. Martin Weeks raised this problem with NYCC several years ago. He and I went and measured up an alternative angled path to replace the existing path straight down to the road. (My job was to hold the other end of the tape measure, a bit like when you and I put the bench up on the Greenway!) NYCC wouldn’t make the change. I can’t remember why, possibly the cost. I agree, disaster waiting to happen.
