[UPDATE The work has been done (on Sunday 19.11.23). See: #199372, #199375, #199377.]

[UPDATE: I queried the CYC decision. An email dated 29.9.23 says:
"After further investigation with our contract partners we can confirm that there will be some patching work taking place in the area that was missed. We apologise for any confusion caused. These works will be undertaken in the new year between January and March 2024. In the meantime the processes that we apply, including regular inspections and surveys, ensure that the highway network is managed in such a way that it is kept safe and available for use."]
[Image taken 26.9.23] Burton Stone Lane, junction with Ratcliffe Street, York. This damage was not repaired when much of this road was: #193155. Location this damage: #197915. Other images here today: #197916, #197917, #197918. Worryingly on 25.9.23 CYC emailed: “Having checked with our external design consultant, there is no further work scheduled by the contractor to patch the missed sections of Burton Stone Lane.”
An email from CYC in April 2023 said:
“This section at the junction of Ratcliffe Street was part of our intended patch repair works. I’m sure you are already aware that this couldn’t be done when the contractor was here previously – this was due to scaffolding on the adjacent building protruding onto this section of the carriageway at the time.”
“This area will be patch repaired in due course. I’m currently waiting for our design consultants to confirm a date for the contractor to return to complete the missing items / remedial works. They will send out a notification letter to the affected residents confirming the arrangements at the appropriate time.”
The very vulnerable non motorised users of Burton Stone Lane were not responsible for the scaffolding or a presumed miscommunication about the dates it was to be put up or remained in place. Yet, with the nights drawing in and fast, cyclists, pedestrians and wheelers (non motorised mobility scooter users) will be at risk for as long as the damage remains unrepaired.
