Planned roadworks on North Parade Bridge

Residents, particularly those living in and around the Empire and the Abbey area, are very concerned about the planned roadworks on North Parade Bridge.

Under the current arrangements, Pierrepont/Manvers Street is often gridlocked and, with North Parade Bridge blocked, many residents will have no way in or out of the city.

One thing that BANEs could do to alleviate this problem would be to open up Pulteney Bridge to all traffic in both directions for the duration of the work.

If the volume of traffic on the bridge would be a concern perhaps the existing traffic control cameras could be used to restrict access to vehicles with appropriate permits.
