Where does Tower Street and Piccadilly meet? Did you mean Piccadilly and Fishergate?

No it isn't. Tower Street ends the other side of the river. Look at a map.

I've had more than one near miss on that junction, involving cars (and a bus) that failed to indicate or give way when I've been riding south from Piccadilly. Sadly, this report doesn't surprise me at all. I wonder what happened here?

The current proposals would use Heslington Rd, Horsman Ave, Melbourne St, cross Fishergate & into Blue Bridge Rd. This avoids the area that you mentioned.

And on that topic, maybe the gentleman who drove out of North Street and turned right up Micklegate at about 1645 this afternoon could take note that, as I was going straight ahead into North Street from Skeldergate, I was the one who had the right of way. Turning your car straight across my path was a pretty stupid thing to do, and risked causing exactly the sort of accident we're reading about.
