Disruption for Cyclists and Pedestrians near York Minster
7:56am 26th November 2012
Cyclists and people walking to work are being advised that there is restricted access alongside York Minster from today.
As part of the York Minster Revealed restoration and conservation project, in partnership with City of York Council, restricted access will be in place in the vicinity of the South Transept/Minster Gates from today until the end of January 2013.
The city council is supporting the restoration works, which is the largest restoration and conservation project of its kind in the UK. The project will transform York Minster as a visitor attraction whilst conserving its world-class stonework and stained glass for generations to come.
The five-year project is generously supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and is scheduled for completion in early Summer 2016.
Temporary traffic management, including signs, will be in place from Monday to advise pedestrians and cyclists that there will be restricted access on Deangate.
The project ties into the Reinvigorate York initiative to improve and enhance the quality of the city’s public spaces.
