CHELTENHAM TRANSPORT PLAN PHASE 4: EXPERIMENTAL BUS LANES, ONE WAY ROADS AND WAITING RESTRICTIONS
Please find below information regarding the proposals for Phase 4 of the Cheltenham Transport Plan. Please also refer to the attached plan drawing detailing these proposals.
The proposals include Experimental Traffic Orders for Bus Lanes, One Way Roads and Waiting Restrictions to be implemented on sections of the following roads:
Bus lanes and waiting restrictions
• Clarence Parade
• Clarence Street
• North Street
• Pittville Street
• High Street
• Promenade / Colonnade
• Imperial Circus
• Crescent Place
• All roads subject to the new bus lane restrictions to have one ways currently in place maintained
The effect of these proposals are that the roads identified as a bus lane (as highlighted with a red line on the attached plan) will only be available to the vehicles identified as ‘permitted vehicles’ on the plan (in the blue box). Other vehicles, generally considered to be through traffic, will be required to find an alternative route.
Subject to the successful implementation of Cheltenham Transport Plan Phase 3 in Royal Well Road, it is intended that these restrictions will be implemented from June 2018. Further information regarding the project as a whole can be found on the webpage detailed below, along with frequently asked questions and answers.
We are contacting you now to inform you of the proposals and to help identify any potential significant issues which may need to be considered ahead of the restrictions commencing in June. I would be grateful to receive any comments you may have by no later than Friday 16th March 2018.
There will be opportunity to make a formal representation as to whether you feel the scheme should become permanent or not once the scheme commences in June 2018. Information regarding how to do this can be found on the webpage detailed below.
