Various changes have been implemented to facilitate new traffic systems and an improved layout of Dryden Road.
Improvements to the street layout of Dryden Road
Rain gardens have been built alongside the road to support natural drainage, enhance wildlife and also act as a protection barrier between cars and pedestrians.
The new road layout also has improved informal crossings and marked parking bays to further contribute to a safer pedestrian environment.
Formalisation of a one-way traffic system on Dryden Road
A one-way traffic system at Dryden Road has been formalised. The road can be accessed from the northern / shops end with traffic flowing south, exiting onto Wordsworth Avenue. This has been implemented to assist with the closure of the road during the timed closures.
Introduction of a ‘School Street’
Dryden Road will be closed to non-essential motor vehicle traffic from 8 - 9am and 3 - 4pm Monday to Friday during school term times, whilst access for people who walk, wheel or cycle is maintained.
