[11 NOV 98] RUGBY BOROUGH COUNCIL PRESS RELEASE
Rugby Road Improvement Scheme

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 traffic.
  • General improvement scheme, traffic calming and restricted access during certain hours except for public transport, taxis, disabled drivers, emergency vehicles, cycles and loading.

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."
