Blue Badge City Centre Access Points Usage


From Thursday 4 January 2024, Blue Badge holders will once again be able to drive into the city centre at any time via Goodramgate, by simply having their badge checked at the barriers.

The council’s Executive decided on 12 October to restore Blue Badge holders’ access to the city centre to as it was before restrictions were introduced in 2019.

The restored access arrangements mean Blue Badge holders will be able to drive into the city centre at any time. They will need to present a valid Blue Badge to barrier staff at the sliding bollards on Goodramgate, and have their clock card with them to display alongside their Blue Badge. They can then drive along Goodramgate, and out via the bollards at Colliergate. They can also drive both ways along Church Street and turn around at the junction with Silver Street, just beyond St Sampson’s Centre.

This data set currently provides a daily count of Blue Badge holders accessing the city centre via the Goodramgate access point.

Installation and connection of the hostile vehicle bollards is now completed and allows access for Blue Badge holders via staffed, sliding bollards at Blake Street, through St Helen’s Square and out through CCTV-controlled sliding bollards at Lendal.
