Anyone who uses the Strand to get to work, come into town or head across the city from north to south or vice versa needs to take a careful look at these changes which come into force this month.

From Monday, 12th October the southbound side of the Strand will be filtered down to one lane to allow contractors to excavate the footway to reduce the four lane carriageway down to two.

The one lane filter will come into effect for traffic after the Leeds Street and Great Howard Street junctions and will continue until Chapel Street junction, just after the Queensway Tunnel exit. Two lanes will remain from there until the James Street junction, opposite Mann Island.

This phase is due to end in November 2020, with further lane restrictions continuing from Chapel Street to James Street through to Spring 2021.

You can read a full report below in the Council’s press release and also look at the actual plans for the Strand phase 2 traffic restrictions (PDF).
