Walking home on the evening of August 30, I marvelled how City Of York Council’s traffic management team could manage to bring gridlock again to the streets of our city.
This time it is the roadworks in Poppleton Road area. At 6pm the results were:
• Water End traffic blocked back to Clifton Green
• Clifton/Bootham totally blocked in both directions
• Water Lane backed up from Clifton Green to Bur Dyke Avenue
• Associated feeder roads blocking back resulting in general gridlock in the Clifton area.
However, I am sure the leader of this team will be pleased with yet another ‘bar’ to his/her Coun James Alexander Medal for “messing up the lives of York residents but not caring”.
