Visitors in cars - major York Bridge is shutting to traffic

Just to let you know that York City Council are shutting LENDAL BRIDGE, a major city centre thoroughfare, for 6 months from 27th August 2013. Commuter traffic will be banned from 10:00 until 17:00, but this could be extended to 07:00 to 19:00.

This decision by the ruling Labour group has been taken against a huge public backlash from residents, local businesses and tourist organisations who think that this will add huge congestion and significant increases in travel times as well as harming the local economy.

Surrounding areas such as St Leonards Place will also be closed to commuter traffic during these hours.

Making one out of three river crossings impassible to cars during the day is extremely shortsighted, especially the one nearest the train station and National Railway Museum. The signage is very poor, especially when the area is crowded by buses which is most of the day and it is too easy to get trapped in one way streets with no where to go! Anyone in a car should go anywhere but York - the Council would prefer it! Harrogate is very welcoming as are the Dales and the rest of Yorkshire.

If you do get caught. Appeal and appeal again. Appeals are being upheld on the second occasion. They go to an independent adjudicator and York council are not contesting them.

Once they have let one person off the penalty charge then everyone should be let off.

Otherwise it's just wrong.
