A NEW Park&Ride at Clifton Moor , a railway station in Haxby and hopes of dualling at least part of York’s northern ring road are included in a wishlist of schemes to improve transport in York over the coming decades.
People are now being invited to have their say on proposals being unveiled today by City of York Council , including improvements to bus services, a freight depot on the edge of town, demolition of the Queen Street Bridge and a new bus interchange beneath.
