Section 3 - Bishop’s Bridge Road - Gloucester Terrace Junction

Closed 20 Mar 2016

Opened 8 Feb 2016

Overview

What are we proposing?

  • Right turn now permitted for all vehicles from  Bishop’s Bridge Road westbound into Gloucester Terrace
  • Improvements for cyclists at the junction of Gloucester Terrace and Bishop’s Bridge Road
  • New double yellow lines introduced on Bishop’s Bridge Road at the junction with Gloucester Terrace
     


Right turn now permitted from Bishop’s Bridge Road (E) into Gloucester Terrace (N)

  • The right turn from Bishop's Bridge Road (E) into Gloucester Terrace (N) would be permitted for all vehicles
  • The proposed reinstatement follows discussions with key stakeholders regarding the proposal to ban the right turn from Bishop's Bridge Road (E) into Westbourne Terrace (N). The reinstated right turn into Gloucester Terrace would reduce the traffic diversions arising from the proposed banned turn into Westbourne Terrace. Please see section 2 for more details of the banned right turn
  • Approaching the junction from the west on Bishop’s Bridge Road, the existing ahead and right turn lane would become right turn only

New Advanced Stop Lines at the junction of Gloucester Terrace and Bishop’s Bridge Road

  • New 5 metre deep Advanced Stop Lines would be introduced on each arm of the junction of Gloucester Terrace and Bishop’s Bridge Road


New double yellow lines introduced on Bishop’s Bridge Road at the junction with Gloucester Terrace

  • New double yellow lines (loading permitted off peak only) would be introduced on the westbound carriageway of Bishop’s Bridge Road. These would stretch from the new Advanced Stop Line for approximately 30 metres east along Bishop’s Bridge Road. 
     

Traffic impacts of these proposals

Our latest analysis shows that these proposals would change journey times for general traffic and some bus routes. We anticipate a significant change for some journeys through the scheme area. Some journeys for general traffic would get longer at the busiest times of day and some would get shorter. Bus journeys along Wood Lane and through the Paddington area would be unaffected in the morning peak, with some journeys becoming longer and some shorter in the evening peak.

Complementary measures

The predicted traffic impacts do not take account of a range of additional complementary measures that would have beneficial impacts on journey times for buses and general traffic. This includes investing in schemes to address bus delays and give priority to buses at certain pinchpoints and providing road users with comprehensive and specific travel advice to help them avoid busy times and locations. We will continue to work with freight and servicing companies to support them to plan their activity to avoid the busiest times and locations. Through the creation of the new Roads and Transport Policing Command, we will target enforcement at the busiest locations and known hot spots to reduce delays and keep traffic moving.
