Lendal at Christmas
A colleague needs to be the other side of the city on Christmas Day and, wondering which route to take, decided to go the Lendal Bridge way.
Just to check that would be possible, I rang the council to check, Christmas Day being a Bank Holiday and all.
The person who answered the phone had no idea, so had to speak to a colleague who in turn had to speak to another colleague.
However, the upshot of it is that indeed the closure will be enforced on Christmas Day even though there will be very few people driving in York and the vast majority of stores will be closed.
I find this somewhat unbelievable, but I suppose there is a chance that I have been given duff information.

• SO FAR, since his election as council leader in 2011, very little has ‘stuck’ to James Alexander, despite overseeing many things that the citizens of York appear to disagree with.
The list is long: closing Lendal Bridge; introducing speed humps and chicanes; 20mph zones; use of inappropriate buses; narrowing of good roads; a blatant ‘anti-car policy’; the removal of the lovely old cobbles from a city square, and more.
