Completed: August 2019

This project delivered a number of pedestrian, cycling and landscape improvements and improved access to Mountergate as part of the wider Prince of Wales Road/ Rose Lane improvement scheme.

Works included:

  • Eastbourne Place one-way reversed to allow traffic from Mountergate to turn right onto Prince of Wales Road. Traffic signals removed at the Rose Lane/Eastbourne Place/Mountergate junction.
  • Creation of a new turning head from Prince of Wales Road onto Rose Lane to allow access to Mountergate
  • Prince of Wales Road reduced to one lane between St Vedast Street and Eastbourne Place to allow for citybound cycleway, footway widening and lengthening of loading bay
  • New on-carriageway cycle lane on Rose Lane between its junction with Prince of Wales Road and Mountergate to tie in with recently-completed cycle lane
  • Creation of a new public space at Eastbourne Place with enhanced landscaping and lighting. Pavement widening in the surrounding area.
  • A new bus stop on Prince of Wales Road to replace Riverside Road stop
  • Closure of St Faiths Lane to motor vehicles at its junction with Prince of Wales Road, maintaining two-way cycling and pedestrian access. Access for vehicles will be via Cathedral Street and Recorder Road.
