Proposed traffic regulation orders to facilitate the redevelopment of Gloucester bus station. These include changes to traffic movements, pedestrian crossings, bus lanes and the re-opening of the Station Road / Bruton Way junction (near Prince Street). Please note that this does NOT include the partial closure of Bruton Way immediately in front of the new bus station.

The redevelopment of Gloucester Bus Station requires changes to be made to some Traffic Orders on the streets in the surrounding area.  For more information, please see the "Download" panel on the right hand side of the screen.

The general effect of these Orders would be to:

  • Revoke the existing Prohibition of Driving Order on Station Road, Gloucester at its junction with A430 Bruton Way to allow this junction to be re-opened to traffic.
  • Prohibit U Turns at the new set of traffic signals that will be installed at the above junction.  Right turns into Station Road from the southbound carriageway of the A430 Bruton Way will also be prohibited.
  • Make changes to the bus lanes on Bruton Way, Station Road and Market Parade including shortening the lengths of the bus lanes, changing the exemptions and revoking parts of existing bus lanes.
  • Revoke the existing one-way and compulsory left-turn Order on the access roads to the multi-storey car park in Bruton Way.
  • Provide two new zebra crossings. These will replace the existing zebra crossing and pelican crossing on Station Road.  The existing zebra crossings on both Bruton Way and the multi-storey car park entrance & exit roads will be removed.

These Orders will now come into effect on 7th August 2017.
