King Street one-way

King Street corridor (large version)

From Wednesday 26 January – for around five months – King Street will be one-way.

Traffic will only be able to travel down King Street towards Swannery Bridge.

Because of the narrow width of the road, closing one lane is the best option so that workers have enough space to carry out the improvement work along King Street and at its junction with The Esplanade.

Drivers will be able to turn right into the station forecourt from King Street, drivers will also be able to turn right into the Esso garage, and Crescent Street and Queen Street will become right turn only out onto King Street.

First buses will be able to access the depot as usual.

    When the scheme is finished, there will be no access along Queen Street South for drop-off traffic leaving the station.

    Will traffic be permitted to exit directly on to King Street (using the current entrance, suitably widened)? If so, will there be a no right-turn restriction?

    Multiple errors in my previous comment – this is all very confusing – so to clarify … 🙂

    When the scheme is finished, there will be no left-turn on to King Street from Queen Street.

    Will traffic leaving the station be permitted to exit directly on to King Street (using the current _entrance_, suitably widened)? If so, will there be a no right-turn restriction?

      Hi Stephen,

      That’s correct, there is no left turn from Queen Street onto King Street.

      By taking away the left turn out of Queen Street, and making it exit only, there will always be traffic moving. At the moment, there is an all red phase which stops every direction of traffic for pedestrians.

      The only way to leave the station will be to use Queen Street.

      Traffic needing to reach the esplanade will have to go via Commercial Road and Westham Road. We appreciate this means a longer journey for some people.
