Avenue Improvements

New bollards and cycle stands have been installed on the pavement outside the shops at Stag Gates on the Avenue. These are designed to restrict vehicle movements on and access to the footways. This action follows complaints by local residents about cars parking on the cyle and footpaths.

Further up the road work has begun on a new scheme to improve safety on the Avenue.

Two new traffic islands are being constructed to aid the right turns from The Avenue into Winn Road and Northlands Road. There will be some new hatched areas painted on the road to compliment the revised layout.

This area has proved something of an accident black spot over the years and this new layout is designed to reduce the likelihood of cars turning right being involved in accidents at these junctions.

Details of the scheme can be seen by clicking on the image below:
