Northern Bus Gate Update

County Councillor Iddon has been briefed this afternoon regarding the results of the Bus Gate consultation. 

The decision has been taken to defer any further implementation of the Bus Gate until the on-going A6 Corridor Works have been completed and the effect of the measures implemented has been evaluated in terms of through traffic, vehicle speeds and collisions at the cross-roads.

      

With the exception of the turning head, the road layout will however be implemented as advertised. This layout, including a road narrowing with priority system should act to deter through traffic whether the Bus Gate is ultimately installed or not.
