The consultation asked respondents whether they support proposals for one of the two locations identified for a possible new pedestrian refuge island and if so, which location would be preferred.

The consultation closed on Sunday 28 July 2019.

Results:

Supports Option A - 75% (15 responses)

Not in support of either option - 5% (1 response)

Councillors have considered the responses received and the decision has been taken to proceed with implementing Option A. To view a plan showing the scheme to be implemented please see the Bath Road - Pedestrian Refuge Detailed Design Plan.

The work to implement the scheme will be carried out from Monday 18 to Friday 22 November 2019. For safety reasons two-way temporary traffic lights will be in operation during the works period between the hours of 9.30am and 4pm.
