[Update 31.12.22: The temporary measure - the cone - remains but has moved and is now 'cones': #188988.] [Additional observations by the local resident who did the count below: Time and date: 17.30pm on Tuesday 13 Dec 2022. "Three cyclists observed in under five minutes using new double-give-way installation on Burton Stone Lane, just north of Bootham. Two northbound, one southbound. Each cyclist had to avoid oncoming vehicles that had entered the give-way space despite the cyclists’ presence there already, and hence their clear priority. All the passing cars (five of them) left less than 30cm of space between themselves and the cyclists."
[Image taken 8.12.22] (Looking southbound) Burton Stone Lane, York. The yellow bollard has replaced the one drivers did not see: #187795. The cone remains... Other images here today: #188665, #188666.
Here is a report from a local resident from 22.11.22.
Date of count: Tue 22 Nov 2022
Time of count: 8.20am to 8.50am
Location: Burton Stone Lane
Weather: Grey, light drizzle
Count result:
Northbound (from Bootham)
86 cars
of which 4 disobeyed give way signs, 2 of those for an oncoming cycle, 1 of those dangerously
1 bike

Southbound (towards Bootham)
70 cars
of the 70, 11 exceeded speed limit, 1 of those dangerously
of the 70, 5 disobeyed give way signs, 2 of those dangerously
11 bikes

Driver compliance: 90% (141 out of 156)
Head-to-head incidents between motorists: 7
Head-to-head incidents between motorist and cyclist: 2, 1 of them dangerous

‘Head-to-head incident’ means two vehicles occupying the space between ‘give way’ markers going towards each other. In both cases involving bikes, the oncoming vehicle drove over the give way markers despite the cyclist having priority and being close to the vehicle."

Overview this scheme, my comments and links: #187753. Note the give way markings have been moved back from the splitter island. Presumably to give drivers more space to 'change lanes'. Surely it was possible before - if people were driving at an appropriate speed for the route.
