Will the improvements have an impact on traffic?March 9, 2020 0 COMMENTS
When considering the impact of new cycle lanes and bus lane changes, traffic must be considered in the context of all people using the road, not just those using private cars. Sustainable modes of transport such as cycling and buses make much more efficient use of our limited road space, and by prioritising these we are able to make our roads operate more efficiently.
Following this engagement period we will develop plans and carry out detailed traffic modelling to assess potential journey time impacts for all modes of traffic. We will work to minimise any journey time impacts and will share this information during the formal public consultation. Bus demand in this area is high so we recognise the need to maintain and where possible improve current bus speeds.
