New Traffic Arrangements in Town Centre
A new traffic layout for Cheltenham town centre will begin, as a trial, on 26 June.
The changes are the fourth phase of the Cheltenham Transport Plan, Cheltenham Borough Council’s (CBC) vision for a better town centre which will improve the environment, boost the local economy and improve traffic management. This phase focuses on changes to the road layout around the area known locally as ‘Boots Corner’.
The trial closure of Boots Corner will be carried out under an experimental traffic regulation order (TRO) from 26 June. The closure will affect the section of Clarence Street through ‘Boots Corner’, North Street, Clarence Parade and Pittville Street to Imperial Circus. These streets will be covered with exemptions for taxis, cycles, loading or unloading between 6pm and 10am and some other exempt vehicles. Traffic signs advising of the changes will be put in place at key points in Cheltenham from 4 June.
