Traffic queues are lengthening on Blossom Street and Nunnery Lane as we begin the first tea time “rush hour” since lock-down restrictions were eased.
The traffic is tailed back from the British Gas roadworks near the Holgate Road junction.
The Council said they would suspend the road closure on Bishopthorpe Road until the gas main replacement works were completed later in the week. This doesn’t seem to have happened, even when the shops on Bishopthorpe Road are closed.
Most other roads in the City currently have low congestion levels.
Congestion is expected to grow as more people return to work and take government advice to avoid the use of public transport.
