I SUPPORT the cycling measures at Gillygate and Bootham.

Giving ever more space to cars might have worked in the 60s and 70s, but it will no longer work now: there are simply too many.

If the city is to remain attractive to smart and innovative incomers, we need to take some of that space away.

We rarely hear in The Press about the one third of households in York that do not have a car and who have face an increasingly poor future on delayed buses and narrow pavements.

I am completely indifferent to the views of taxi drivers.

We can certainly get more people in York cycling, and Gillygate and Bootham are important steps.

Mr Baxter,

Stockton Lane,
