A new shared-use path has appeared on Wyresdale Road from its junction with Coulston Road to its junction with Grab Lane. Dynamo understands this was done with Section 106 planning obligation funds from the Miller homes development on the old Hornsea Pottery site. This new path will no doubt work in favour of the planning applications for residential developments beyond Fenham Carr, and it partly addresses Dynamo’s perennial gripe that developments are approved before infrastructure is put in (although, ironically, the path is from a development that was approved in 2014).
However, it doesn’t address the question of continuing your journey once you get to Coulston Road, which is a busy road with little space for overtaking. Moreover, the eagle-eyed amongst you will have spotted that cyclists are instructed to get off their bikes to cross the Fenham Carr Lane cul-de-sac.
There’s also quite a bump to negotiate at the Grab Lane end at present, but presumably this is still work in progress.
On the other side of Wyresdale Road there is a narrow cycle lane leading up to Coulston Road, but it manages to take in a fairly impressive pothole.
