There are eight captions on the map.

Caption one: Planting and greenery will be added to the pedestrianised areas along Market Street.

Caption two: All roads closed to general traffic will retain access for deliveries and pick-ups for residents and businesses with the exemption of food delivery drivers.

Caption three: Electric bollards, which can be raised and lowered remotely, would restrict access for vehicles. Deliveries and collections for businesses are still able to take place and drivers would gain access through the intercom system.

Caption four: Previously it was proposed to have one traffic lane in each direction for traffic going in and out of the Broadway Centre car park. Now, there will be one lane of traffic going into the car park, with two lanes of traffic going out of the car park.

Caption five: Two bays of disabled parking would be added on Bank Street. Users would access the parking bays through an intercom system which raises and lowers the electric bollards.

Caption six: The access to the Broadway Centre car park will be kept as it is now.

Caption seven: Bank Street will be closed to general traffic from its junction with Hall Ings. A turning circle will be added to enable pick-ups and drop-off.

Caption eight: There will be a segregated cycleway along Hall Ings.

What effect will construction have on the road network?

We are anticipating that all roads will remain open to traffic, as they currently are, until spring 2024. Until then, there may be temporary lane closures, temporary traffic lights and temporary changes to footpaths to enable us to make changes to the highway network. However, you will still be able to access all roads by car, van, motorcycle etc. 

Please plan your journey ahead of time as we expect there to be delays. From spring 2024, Hall Ings, Bank Street, Market Street, Broadway and some of Bridge Street will not be accessible by car with exceptions for deliveries only.

The pedestrianisation and construction work to Bank Street, Market Street and Broadway will not start until spring 2024. Once we have more details of how we plan to construct this area, we will upload them to this webpage.
