Railway Zone - Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO)
The Experimental Traffic Regulation Order is due to be implemented on the 3rd September 2018.
Gloucestershire County Council has been working with Great Western Railway to enable them to expand the capacity of the station car park. This means that from September 2018 approximately 70 car park spaces will be out of use whilst initial ground works are carried out. The car park is due to be completed in summer 2019.
To assist with this important development Gloucestershire County Council is proposing changes to on street parking restrictions near Cheltenham Spa Station, in Zone 14, by introducing an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO). This will provide approximately 100 long stay parking spaces on parts of Eldorado Road, Queens Road and Christ Church Road.
In these locations the parking restrictions will be altered as follows:
From: Monday to Friday 8am – 8pm Zone 14 permit holders or limited waiting 4 hours no return 4 hours
To: 8am Monday – 8pm Friday Zone 14 Permit holders; or Voucher parking (Max stay 12 hours, no return within 10 hours).
This trial arrangement means that permit holders will continue to be able to use the bays for any time period. However some bays in Eldorado Road, Queens Road and Christ Church Road will now be shared use with non-residents able to park for up to 12 hours using a free voucher. Details for obtaining a voucher will be found on the sign plates next to these bays.
The plan (below) shows the parking bay locations where the Experimental TRO will be introduced.
An Experimental TRO can run for a maximum of 18 months during which time we can trial different options if we need to. During the first six months we will collect your comments and monitor voucher usage to understand how the new parking arrangements are working before deciding whether to:
- make the change permanent,
- abandon the change, or
- seek some other solution. To submit a comment or query please contact us at:

Gloucester Transport Hub (Bus Station) - Traffic Regulation Orders
New proposed Orders 2018 - Proposed One-Way & Waiting Restrictions, on roads around the new Bus Station.
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.
