To reduce the amount of through traffic it will no longer be possible to drive through the neighbourhood. There will be five closures points that apply to all motor vehicles, except the emergency services. Motor vehicles can drive to the closure points, from one direction or the other, but cannot drive through. Every single property can still be accessed by motor vehicle.
Each of the 5 new closure points will be created by installing no motor-vehicle signs. To make the new restrictions obvious to motorists there will also be planters positioned in the road. A gap will be left to facilitate emergency vehicle access but traffic enforcement cameras will be used to ensure that the new restrictions are observed by other motorists. We will also put out advance warning signs on surrounding roads and notify digital mapping services to alert motorists to the changes.
The 5 new closure points are located at:
- (1) Palace Road junction with Daysbrook Road
- (2) Amesbury Avenue junction with Emsworth Street
- (3) Faygate Road
- (4) Downton Avenue junction
- (5) Hillside Road
