After some delays the cycle by-pass lane to the ‘out of use’ bollards in Regent Street has been closed off, and cyclists directed through the bus gate. This should eliminate the possibility of cyclists being ‘squashed’ at the pinch point beyond.

It is now expected that the bollards will not come into operation until July. At that time both the speed and volume of motor traffic at this location will be much reduced, and the Council has proposed a change to the layout of lanes that we will discuss.
