King’s Lynn bus lane to be opened to all traffic

King’s Lynn bus lane to be opened to all traffic

Bus Users UK has condemned plans to open up a bus, cycle and pedestrian route in Lynn to all traffic, as part of the redevelopment of the riverfront area.

Hardings Way has become a popular route for cyclists and pedestrians as only buses currently have access. The planned redevelopment, which is reportedly going to cost around £120m, will include opening the restricted road to all vehicles, raising concerns about the volume of traffic and road safety.

Dawn Badminton-Capps, Director of Bus Users England said: “Opening a restricted road increases traffic and leads to congestion, pollution and a greater risk of road traffic accidents – presumably the very opposite of what West Norfolk Council actually wants to achieve.

“We would urge them to reconsider and find more creative ways to improve access to the area.”
