Milsom Street closure.

Road surfacing work is being carried out to further enhance the advance notice signage for the new bus gate at the junction of Milsom Street and George Street in Bath.

The road will be closed overnight on Monday November 30 for the work to be completed. Cameras that were installed at the junction were switched on at the end of October.

The vehicle restriction introduced by Bath & North East Somerset Council allows only buses to travel along the one-way Milsom Street up to the junction with Quiet Street between 10am and 6pm.

The junction is monitored by the automatic number plate recognition cameras (ANPR) in line with other bus gates in the city and enforced by issuing of fines, to make sure the zone is safe for pedestrians and cyclists.

Councillor Joanna Wright, joint cabinet member for Transport Services, said: “We are carrying out resurfacing works in Milsom Street on Monday 30th to bring it in line with the other bus gates. We are also adding additional warning signs at other locations to make drivers aware of the new bus gate. Please remember that any driver who disregards the restriction will now receive an automatic fine.”
