Planning and building

York Station Front - Queen Street Bridge

The masterplan proposal for York Station Front is based on 8 key features which work together to improve the use of space in front of York Station - removing Queen Street Bridge would give the space needed to make these changes.

The road could then be moved further away from the City Wall to improve its setting. The Victorian bridge was built when trains used the lines through to the old railway station (now the West Offices) - it has not been needed since the 1960s. The bridge is built very close to the rampart of the city walls, and hides a large section of the walls from view. It also obscures several of the Victorian railway-era York RI buildings.
