What a fiasco

What a fiasco

First published in Letters by

IT IS no wonder that councillors Alexander and Merrett do not want an inquiry into the Lendal Bridge fiasco (Lendal Bridge Inquiry Opposed, The Press, June 5) as they were the main perpetrators of this ill thought out idea.

It is amazing how these two have kept their positions on the council, Merrett being moved to another post with a fancy title and Alexander writing the odd letter to The Press and the usual photo shoots.

In any other workplace they would be either out of a job or demoted. You couldn't make it up.

D M Dale, Clifton Moor, York.

Theto score cheap points off each other, gridlock will creep p unno current Local Transport Plan which was signed off in 2010 by the then ruling LibDems mooted the experimental bridge closure. Ouse Bridge was favoured at the time.
Transport is the one issue which demands cross party agreement. Nero fiddled while Rome burned. If we continue to corporately dither, and try to score cheap points off each other, then gridlock will creep up unnoticed.
A transport free for all is iin no-one's interests, and demand must be controlled to prioritise road capacity for its most efficient users.
