The timeline below shows the lifecycle of this project, including the current (active) stage and those already completed, as well as expected future stages and timings, if the scheme is approved and goes ahead to completion.
Consultation feedback and decisionCompleted
This consultation gives you an opportunity to state your support or objection to the Traffic Regulation Orders which would be necessary to implement and enforce the restricted access zone
Report and final decisionCompleted
We intend to bring the TROs into effect as soon as possible, under a temporary managed arrangement. We also intend to engage further with user groups on the access operation and management of the permanent arrangements, to ensure it is safe but simple to access.
