From today Lendal Bridge (leading from the train station to the Minster) will be closed to traffic everyday between 10:30am - 5pm. This is a trial by City of York Council to ease congestion around the city, and will last for 6 months. Pedestrian access over the bridge is unaffected, and buses, taxis and bikes are exempt. However, all other traffic coming to York Theatre Royal during the day now has to approach from Bootham.
We hope this will not disrupt your journey plans too much. A decision about whether to make this restriction permanent will be made after the success of the trial has been evaluated next year.
Please see the Council's website for more details.
