People are being warned there will be restricted access alongside York Minster from next week, as part of the South Piazza revamp.
The works, which will leave the piazza looking as it does in this artist’s impression, are part of the York Minster Revealed restoration project and will see restricted access in the vicinity of the South Transept/Minster Gates from Monday for about 10 weeks. Contractors will build a new carriageway as part of the new piazza in natural stone setts and continue the works around the South Transept and associated paved areas.
The York Minster Revealed project will transform the visitor attraction while conserving its world-class stonework and stained glass for generations to come. It is scheduled for completion in 2016.
