Traffic rules have been amended at the Gap Road/Haydons Road junction, permitting traffic to turn right, a manoeuvre that was forbidden previously.

Gap Road traffic
Gap Road: now you can turn right

It is hoped that this change will reduce rat running traffic that had been cutting from Gap Road onto Avondale and then Haydon Park or Cromwell Road before turning right onto Haydons Road southbound.

Do let us know if you’ve noticed an improvement (or not!).
