Sherlock Street

Between 4 June and 4 July 2019 we consulted on revised proposals for bus priority on Sherlock Street.

The revised Sherlock Street scheme design includes:

  • A bus gate on Sherlock Street, located just after the junction with Gooch Street (in the direction of Belgrave Middleway). The bus gate will restrict traffic in the outbound direction to buses, cycles and Hackney Carriages (black cabs).
  • Widening the footpath between Hope Street and Mowbray Street. This is to improve pedestrian access to the bus stop.
  • Upgrading the crossing on Sherlock Street (close to Hope Street) to a parallel crossing for use by pedestrians and cyclists. This is to improve connectivity for cyclists travelling between National Cycle Route 5 on Gooch Street and the A38.
