Stonebow and Fossgate have now fully reopened, with the main works completed.

The road surface across the area has been reconstructed and changes have been made to the layout and surface of the footways on Fossgate in York’s city centre.

The aim of the scheme was to improve the appearance and character, create a more pedestrian-friendly environment and improve access for pedestrians and cyclists, attracting more visitors to the area.

Tony Clarke, Head of Transport at City of York Council said, “We know the closures have caused delays and disruption for some and we would like to thank residents, businesses and commuters for their patience. The works are now complete ready for the busy Easter period.

The council engaged with local businesses before and during the works so they could help plan the scheme. Another drop-in session is set to take place later this month to enable them to give feedback. This will help the council to learn lessons from the delivery of the project and deliver future schemes more effectively.
