WORK on the revamped St George’s Square could be undone by vehicles driving over the pavement, claims a concerned driver.
The reconstructed square has a side road for vehicles dropping people off at the station.
But cabbies have been driving their vehicles right up to the station steps.
Now concern has been raised that the vehicles will damage the new flagstones, laid as part of a £4m revamp of the square.
Mick Wilby, who drives his wife to Huddersfield Station every morning, says he regular sees taxis driving up to the station steps.
The square has no barriers or signs to stop vehicles driving on the pavement.
Mr Wilby, of Mirfield, said: “They’re just taking liberties because they’re lazy.
“St George’s Square is a wonderful piece of work and it’s in danger of being ruined by lazy people driving on it.
“I’ve seen occupants get out and they’re not disabled.
“It only needs something to happen and all the good work will be undone.”
A spokesman for Kirklees Highways said: “We are aware of this problem and are considering the ways it can be prevented.
“Any work will need to be carried out sensitively so that the area isn’t cluttered, but we will look at placing some bollards at the kerb-side to stop vehicles driving over the kerbs in this pedestrianised section.
“We won’t be able to prevent vehicular access until all construction works are complete and construction vehicles are no longer being used on the paved areas in question.
“But, in the meantime, the council’s enforcement officers are advising drivers about the appropriate dropping-off places.”
