As part of a £1.5 million restoration scheme to preserve and protect York’s medieval city walls – announced by City of York Council last month – road closures will be needed in Micklegate to allow the restoration works to be carried out safely.
The first phase will start on 12 June for three weeks. Scaffolding will be put up on Micklegate Bar to allow a temporary roof to be installed. A full road closure to traffic will be put in place for Micklegate Bar itself whilst the scaffold is put up. An outbound closure point will be put in place at the bottom of Micklegate hill but the rest of Micklegate will remain open up to the bar. Pedestrian and cycle access will be available throughout this period.
