London Road Cycle Scheme – a 24 hour 7 days per week mandatory cycle lane has been introduced along London Road and Cheltenham Road in Gloucester. In order to facilitate cyclist safety, a new temporary traffic regulation order (TTRO) is being introduced to implement a 24 hour 7 days per week loading ban along London Road and Cheltenham Road. This restriction will stop vehicles being able to enter the mandatory cycle lane to wait, park, load and unload at all times, therefore, ensuring the cycle lane is kept clear and free of obstructions for cyclists to safely ride along it at all times of the day and week. The TTRO will become effective on 30th October 2020.
