Cyclists approaching the Windmill Line, Church Lane, Field Lane junction in Heslington, from different directions sometimes have do do strange and potentially dangerous manoeuvres to get to where they want to go.
For example:
Approaching the junction from the east along Field Lane towards Heslington along the cycle path, if I am wanting to turn right up Church and then Windmill lane, following the cycle path I cross at the lights over the University bus lane, I then cross Field Lane at the same traffic lights, I can then either cycle up Church Lane and cross the road at the junction with Windmill Lane to cycle up Windmill Lane (just up from the traffic lights and with no ability to see the cars coming round the junction up Church Lane), or I Church Lane this time again at the traffic lights, and join a narrow pedestrian path, then cross over Windmill Lane to cycle along it. The same journey in reverse is just as tortuous.
All I think that is required is a pedestrian and cycle crossing at the east end of field lane at the already existing traffic lights and a widening of the pedestrian path on the east side of Church lane to include a cycle lane which then has a drop kerb onto Windmill lane.
This may also aid cyclists coming along Church Lane trying to get onto the Field Lane cycle path.
