Murray Place roads consultation

Murray Place proposed changes map

  

Current Future
Traffic congestion - buses, taxis and loading conflicting with through traffic One way traffic towards Station Road with simplified road layout
Bus stops on both sides of the street Improved bus stops mainly catering for passenger drop off  (see Goosecroft Road )
Dispersed taxi rank provisions (at Morrisons and Poundstrechers) New larger taxi rank in central location
Pedestrians corralled into narrow space (vehicle dominance) Wider footways for improved pedestrian access
Clutter of street furniture, railings, sign posts, bus shelters etc Removal of as much clutter and signing as possible
Indiscriminate Parking Revised traffic orders giving improved arrangements for buses, taxis and loading
Poor quality streetscape High quality materials and street furniture incorporating trees and soft landscaping where possible
