Julian Welcome’s Lendal Bridge Ruling

April 1, 2014

According to the latest ruling by the Traffic Adjudicator, York Council are not allowed to issue fines for traffic restrictions on Lendal Bridge. Local MP Julian Sturdy has welcomed the ruling as “a victory for common sense”.

Today Julian commented “The closure of Lendal Bridge has been a dog’s breakfast from start to finish. Not only has it caused horrendous traffic problems throughout the city, it now appears that the Council have been wrongly demanding payment for fines that should never have been issued in the first place.”

“The Council has failed to oversee the trailed closure properly and I think the very least the Council Leader should do is apologise for trouble he has caused local residents and businesses.

“Hopefully the Council will now see sense, waive the outstanding fines that should never have been handed out, and re-open Lendal Bridge as quickly as possible.”
