We are seeking your views about how traffic is controlled in your area and to see if you would like measures put in to reduce the number of motorists using your roads as a ‘rat run’.
Why are we proposing measures in your area?
A number of residents have contacted us with concerns about rat running causing congestion throughout the day particularly on Bishop King’s Road. Results of traffic surveys undertaken in September 2016 have confirmed that rat running occurs in both directions and particularly eastbound.
In response, we are consulting on three options which are:
- Option 1 - ‘No right turn’ from North End Road into Bishop King’s Road.
- Option 2 - A gated road closure on Bishop King’s Road. This will stop cars and lorries, but pedestrians and cyclists can still access the road.
- Option 3 - No change
