Once again Leeman rd residents are left to fend for them self as CyC stays incompetent
even after 12 years CyC would rather spend millions on its own new offices and 100 of 1000's on decoration and pictures for such.

Any tourists in York under this lovely warm and blue sky today can probably squint a little and imagine they're in Venice (providing they hold their noses)

Blossom Street sewers are still stinking though, and High Ousegate is not the place to hang around right now either if you want your lunch to stay down.

Police say some motorists are still ignoring road closure signs and even crossing bridges which have yet to be checked by structural engineers.

what an absolute joke,i watched a police van go around the road closed sign on skeldergate yesterday morning , and they are advising us not to!

Oh please Leeman Road is not the only place with some flooding and it is by no means the area with the biggest risk of late scale damage. The EA have a limited supply if large capacity pumps and at times like these its most needy first.

Instead of moaning try helping somewhere and maybe what goes around will come around.

get real BioLogic, i was flooded out of my house in leeman road in 1978 and if houses in that area are still flooding then there is something wrong with york city councils priorities.if all the money was spent on other schemes to improve the city it wouldn t be so bad but the council seem to find plenty for their own pet agendas eg anything relating to cyclists.

fossman says...

Surely its time for both the Ouse and the Foss to be dredged, to clear away the silt that has been left behind after the past 40yrs of flooding.
The build up of silt is partly responsible for areas a long both rivers that have suffered flooding.
Walkers Barge the Reklaw was a common sight along the Foss 40yrs ago working to keep the river free flowing.
Its time the EA and CYC got the dredgers back!

Leeman Road has not flooded for years since the flood defences were built. I remember when it used to be an unfortunate annual event.

If your interested in racing, the official going at York is good to soft (soft in places).

Regarding the history comments on the floods, it's a shame the rest of this article isn't online, I remember there being quite a spread on it when it was printed:

"marginally higher than the major 1982 floods, but still about 35cm or three feet below the level reached in 2000."

Please correct this one! 35cm is just less than 1 foot 2 inches NOT 3 feet! (3 feet = 91.44 cm)
