TRO-14-2020 Brighton & Hove (A259 Grand Junction Road, Kings Road and Kingsway)

Closes 9 Apr 2021

Opened 17 Jul 2020

Overview

The existing pavement cycle facility on the seafront is under increasing pressure as more people take exercise and travel actively around the city.

This increased demand is great to see but it is making it difficult for pedestrians and cyclists to maintain physical distancing while enjoying the benefits of living by the sea.

To reduce this pressure, Brighton & Hove will introduce a temporary on-carriageway cycle facility. This will be between the Aquarium roundabout/Madeira Drive and the western boundary of the city.

This scheme will be delivered in 2 phases. The first phase will be put in place in the first 2 weeks of August. The second phase will be completed later in the summer.

To allow these works to go ahead, we're advertising an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order to cover:

  • reducing and relocating shared parking on Kingsway in Zones M and N
  • removing and relocating motorcycle bays on Kingsway in Zone M and Kings Road
  • reducing and relocating paid parking on Kings Road
  • relocating disabled bays and loading bays on Kings Road
  • relocating loading bay and taxi rank on Marine Parade and removing small section of paid parking
  • introducing no loading/unloading at any time on the south side of Grand Junction Road, King’s Road and Kingsway and reinstating double yellow lines on sections of cycle lane
  • new mandatory cycle lanes on south side of King’s Road (west of West Street) and Kingsway

Overall, there will be a reduction in available shared-use and pay and display parking of 60% on the south side of the road and no reduction in parking on the north side of the road.

There will be no overall loss of disabled parking or loading bays.

There will be no overall loss of taxi rank facilities.
