SIMON SWEENEY (Letters, April 25) wants Lendal Bridge closed again soon. He obviously has not read the huge variety of opinions in depth, printed since the trial started, that caused the Labour council to abandon it.

Living in Sheriff Hutton, he may not have seen the total chaos the experiment caused everywhere else in the city, let alone understood the damage it did to the tourism industry. We have too many people driving too many vehicles on too small an island, so get used to it.
