The impact of
traffic through Rugby town centre has been a cause for concern for several years.
An initial consultation in 1997 showed that people wanted to reduce the impact of
traffic in North Street, Church Street and Clifton Road. Three possible themes emerged
from this consultation process.
- Improvement of these streets with a set of measures designed to improve conditions and
facilities for cyclists, pedestrians, public transport and taxis.
- General improvement scheme plus traffic calming measures to reduce the speed of the
- General improvement scheme, traffic calming and restricted access during certain hours
except for public transport, taxis, disabled drivers, emergency vehicles, cycles and
These three themes do not preclude the development of further ideas following the
current phase of consultation.
Two events being held as part of the consultation process. A workshop for businesses
and residents directly fronting the route is taking place on Wednesday 11 November.
An exhibition for the general public will be held on Saturday 21 November at the Clock
Towers Shopping Centre.
Councillor Bryan Levy, Leader of the Council said,
"This is an opportunity for local people to have their say about the future of the
Town Centre. I hope that as many people as possible will visit the exhibition and let us
hear their views."
