About 47,000 drivers were fined during a duration of trade restrictions on York’s Lendal Bridge

Drivers fined for channel York’s Lendal Bridge while trade restrictions were in place have only days to request for their income back, officials have said.

About 47,000 fines totalling £1.3m were released during a hearing to shorten trade during a day.

The hearing took place between Aug 2013 and Apr 2014.

Refunds can be performed by job City of York Council or by visiting a website.

Refunds were offering to drivers after a trade decider pronounced a legislature had “no power” to emanate fines since signage and CCTV were inadequate.

Last year, a legislature spent about £150,000 essay to 27,000 drivers who had not claimed a refund. The deadline has been extended twice.

The management pronounced it would tell a sum cost of a Lendal Bridge “settlement” after 31 Mar when a focus routine ends.
