Work to start near Millennium Bridge

City of York Council

Work starts next week between Millennium Bridge and Butcher Terrace to improve accessibility and to allow it to stay open for longer when the river levels rise.

Work will begin on Monday 17 June 2024 and is expected to last for five weeks.

The works will:

  • Raise part of the path (the dip which is the area that traditionally floods) by 60cm to level it out
  • Install pipes that will run under the path to allow flood water to drain under the route
  • Improve the bollards and tactile paving arrangement to increase accessibility. This will include widening the space between the bollards to be compliant with current policy and adjusting the tactile paving.
  • Widen and straighten the path to create more space for people.
  • Remove the speed humps.

These works are making this key walking, wheeling and cycling route more resilient to flooding, allowing it to remain passable for longer when river levels rise.

Diversions will be in place around the works which will allow people to continue to use the route and get across the bridge, with signage in place to help people.
