WHEN all is said and done about Lendal Bridge, most people would agree how much better it has been around the bridge, the railway station, the Minster and The Theatre Royal, during the closure.

The mismanagement of it all was mainly in the signage.

Maybe the good, responsible drivers who found alternate ways round during the eight months could continue using these new ways voluntarily, if only to show their appreciation of the beautiful city in which we live.

Most visitors will soon have a park and ride at every entrance to York, which they should be encouraged to use at every opportunity.
