Essential Improvement Works in Fishergate York
9:45am 13th February 2013
Essential improvement works will be carried out from today to install additional pedestrian crossing facilities in the Fishergate Ward.
City of York Council say the aim of the scheme is to make it more easily accessible and safer to walk between St George’s Field car/coach park and the Barbican.
They add that improvements will be made to Paragon Street, Fawcett Street and George Street junctions, as well as general improvements to the existing footways in the area.
The scheme, they say will also simplify and improve the appearance of the road layout next to Fishergate Bar.
As with any construction work, say City of York Council there will be a certain amount of disruption and inconvenience, and everything reasonably possible will be done to minimise the impact. They add that drivers and cyclists are asked to bear this in mind when planning their journey times and route.
The works will begin on today and last for approximately six to eight weeks.
City of York Council will they say be carrying out the works and will be responsible for public safety.
