Temporary closure of Low Petergate

City of York Council has closed Low Petergate outside Poundland this afternoon. It is likely to remain closed until Monday morning at the earliest.

Work to permanently repair a void which was plated before Christmas, has revealed a hole which extends halfway across the road. A diversion is in place around Swinegate. Work to repair the road will start tomorrow. 

Pedestrians are unaffected as half the road and one footway remain open.
