I was pleased to find the document above, on this link (ref CD1.7 in the list). I had been a bit confused about what ‘the closure of Leeman Road’ entailed, exactly.
Not the whole of it, clearly. It’s the section denoted by the blue dashes.
It’s still very important — part of the York Central redevelopment — and clearly very controversial, and it’s made me think a lot — not for the first time — about many things connected with the York as we’ve known it and the York it might be becoming.
The inquiry has now finished, but from the documents made available online because of it I was able to find the helpful plan above.
I watched a bit of the livestream of the inquiry, on its final day, and looked at some of the accompanying documents, and wanted to get together on here a bit of information on this. Well, I say ‘wanted to’, I mean I felt like I should. It’s an important thing, but it’s also rather long-winded and detailed. More later perhaps. Credit to those who have waded through the detail and taken it to the public inquiry stage.
Update – I’ve now added more information, see Railway Museum plans and Leeman Road.
