Ladypool Road experimental one-way scheme
Ladypool Road is a thriving local centre and part of the world famous Balti Triangle, with lots of local shops, restaurants, takeaways and other facilities.
The road is quite narrow in some places and vehicles can often find it hard to pass each other. There is also limited space for parking and loading/unloading. Recent accident reports and speed surveys show there could be problems with safety along the road, especially at night.
To address these issues, we are making a section of Ladypool Road one-way, between the junction with Alder Road and the junction with Brighton Road/Taunton Road. Motorised vehicles will only be able to travel northbound (towards the city centre) on this section of the road. Cyclists will still be able to travel in both directions.
This change will be made using an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO), which can last for 18 months. During this time, we will monitor and assess the effect of the changes before deciding whether it should be made permanent. The findings will be used to inform future improvements to Ladypool Road Local Centre.
We plan to implement these one-way measures in summer 2019.
