Phase 4 - Boots Corner Trial

Current position:

The experimental closure of Boots Corner commenced on Thursday 28th June 2018.


The overall concept of the proposals is that Boots Corner and the roads on the approaches will become a Bus Gate or Prohibition of Driving (as detailed on the downloadable plan below) and will only be available to certain permitted vehicles. These permitted vehicles will be;

  • Buses.
  • Taxis.
  • Pedal Cycles.
  • Loading / Unloading 6pm - 10am.
  • Authorised Vehicles:
    • Private Hire Vehicles
    • Vehicles accessing off-carriageway parking on Church Street*, accessing off-carriageway parking on Post Office Lane* and accessing / egressing off-carriageway parking on North Street within the Bus Gate restriction.
    • Funeral vehicles registered by Gloucestershire County Council servicing St Mary’s Church.
    • Bullion Vehicles.
    • Post Office Vehicles.
  • General vehicle exemptions such as emergency service vehicles, maintenance vehicles, waste collection vehicles, military vehicles

*Vehicles only authorised to travel through Prohibition of Driving sections required to access the road. Vehicles are not authorised to travel through Bus Gate.

Please see FAQS for further details.

Other vehicles, generally considered to be through traffic, will need to find alternative routes.

Experimental Traffic Regulation Orders creating a new Bus Gate or Prohibition of Driving will be put in place on sections of the following roads; Clarence Parade, Clarence Street, North Street, Pittville Street, High Street, Promenade/Colonnade and Imperial Circus, together with Experimental Traffic Regulation Orders for revised waiting restrictions and a new One Way on Crescent Place. Please see 'Scheme Plan' and 'Traffic Regulation Order documentation' for further details.


The new restrictions commenced on Thursday 28th June 2018 and will run experimentally for a period of up to 18 months (please see FAQs for further information).
