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

Closes 24 Jan 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 both pedestrians and cyclists to maintain physical distancing whilst enjoying the benefits of living by the sea.

To alleviate this pressure, Brighton and Hove will be introducing a temporary on-carriageway cycle facility between the Aquarium roundabout/Madeira Drive and the western boundary of the City. This scheme will be delivered in two phases with the first phase being implemented in the first two weeks of August and the second phase being completed later in the summer.

To facilitate these works we are advertising an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order to cover the following changes:

  • Reduce and relocate shared parking on Kingsway in Zones M &N
  • Remove and relocate motorcycle bays on Kingsway in Zone M and Kings Road.
  • Reduce and relocate paid parking on Kings Road.
  • Relocate disabled bays and loading bays on Kings Road
  • Relocate loading bay and taxi rank on Marine Parade and remove small section of paid parking.
  • Introduce no loading/unloading at any time on the south side of Grand Junction Road, King’s Road and Kingsway and reinstate double yellow lines on sections of cycle lane
  • New mandatory cycle lanes on south side of Grand Junction Road, King’s Road 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.

There will be a small reduction in available motorcycle parking immediately adjacent to the Pier but other bays will be retained.
