Brazen Gate to All Saints Green

Expected start:  Monday 8 January 2018

Expected completion:  March 2018

Project outline

The aim of this project is to redesign the junction of All Saints Green, Brazen Gate and Queens Road to provide better infrastructure for cyclists using the yellow pedalway.  Proposed measures will be designed to reduce delays for cyclists and improve connectivity and comfort along the routes.

It builds on the recently completed changes around Westlegate, which have significantly reduced traffic levels in All Saints Green and therefore allow the following design changes to be put forward.

Details of work

  • Upgrade of traffic signal equipment and modifications to pedestrian crossings at Queens Road junction
  • Replacement of existing signalised crossing on Grove Road with a zebra crossing
  • New zebra crossing on Brazen Gate, south of Grove Road junction
  • Carriageway surfacing on Brazen Gate
  • New cycle lanes on Brazen Gate and All Saints Green (between Surrey Street and Queens Road)
  • Kerb realignment on Grove Road at its junction with Brazen Gate
  • Installation of an enforcement camera at Grove Road bus gate
  • Landscape planting at junction of Grove Road/Brazen Gate

Reasons for work:

  • Improve the yellow pedalway route for cyclists on All Saints Green and Brazen Gate
  • Improve the pedestrian crossing facilities at Queens Road junction with Brazen Gate and All Saints Green
  • Improve the crossing facilities for pedestrians on Brazen Gate and Grove Road
  • Replace signal equipment at the end of its life
  • Repair worn out carriageway
