Work is now complete to create a new cul-de-sac turnaround area at River Street / Faulkner Street. This facilitates two-way traffic along River Street and includes improved loading facilities for the local businesses on Drake Street and a new taxi rank for 7 vehicles.
The taxi rank is the final piece in creating a transport hub in the heart of the town centre, improving access to the Transport Interchange, Metrolink Stop.
The facility is located to the rear of lower Drake Street and will allow vehicle access down River Street from Water Street, turn around and then exit back onto Water Street. It forms part of a wider scheme to reduce through traffic and make the town centre more pedestrian and cycle friendly.
Within the River Street car park there are now two electric vehicle charge points available for use.
