Queens Road Church Street

What? Improving the layout of the junction to increase the junction capacity for vehicles.

When? To be confirmed, but works are likely to start winter 2018 and be finished by spring 2019.

Why? This junction forms one of the key junctions within the town centre one-way system and queuing traffic often occurs on Queens Road due to vehicles on the one-way system having the right of way.

If traffic signals were to be installed it would allow a fairer and more even flow of traffic which would reduce queuing on Queens Road and would allow for traffic light controlled pedestrian crossings to be created, improving pedestrian safety.
