Walford Road, Brighton Road and Nevill Road

In 2015, as part of Cycle Superhighway Route 1 (CS1), three roads were closed to through traffic around Wordsworth Road. The closures succeeded in reducing traffic on the cycle route and improving air quality and road safety near the schools. This was consistent with the Council’s Transport Strategy which aims to improve air quality, create better neighbourhoods, promote cycling and stop rat running.

However, some roads, particularly Walford Road, Brighton Road and Nevill Road, are now suffering from increased traffic and aggressive driving. The Council therefore need to do more to reduce traffic on these streets and complement the existing closures.

This report includes details of the consultation results, air quality results and traffic diversion assessment and the Council will make a recommendation on how to proceed.
