Leeman Road could be re-routed and the Queen Street bridge demolished to improve traffic flows when the massive York Central development gets underway, visitors to a consultation meeting were told.
Fears that the proposed development could cause major traffic problems in west York dominated the first of a series of consultation events.
More than 150 people attended a special joint meeting of the Holgate and Micklegate ward committees at St Paul’s Church in Holgate on Tuesday evening.
They were told that Leeman Road could be re-routed, so it would no longer directly link Water End and Lendal Bridge, while the Queen Street bridge could be demolished to make more space around the Railway Station.
The York Central development between Water End, the east coast main line and roads north of Holgate Road is expected to provide between 1,000 and 2,500 homes and 7,000 jobs in high class office accommodation.
