Work will begin at the end of February to install traffic calming systems in Gardner Street in the North Laine. The road will be made safer for pedestrians and will act to deter drivers from making non-essential trips through the area.
Pavements will be widened on the east side and voucher parking removed to make the road easier for pedestrians to use. A speed-reducing feature will be constructed in the centre of the road that will also act as a pedestrian crossing point.
Councillor Gill Mitchell, chair of Brighton & Hove’s environment committee said, “This is phase three of the North Laine traffic calming scheme. The measures will make it easier for shoppers to get around the narrow streets and enjoy the atmosphere of the North Laine.”
Two large loading bays and new disabled parking facilities will replace the voucher bays.
The work is scheduled for completion by the end of May.
