From closing city centre roads to limiting vehicle access to the seafront, we are giving you more space to socially distance, while moving around the city
As people return to work and study, and continue to exercise outdoors, we have made the following enhancements to our seafront and city centre roads, allowing people to move and maintain a safe distance of two metres apart.
Our improvements in these areas are under constant review as we listen to your feedback and follow government advice.
- Increasing safe cycling and walking space - Seafront roads closed to vehicles between two sections
- Increasing cycle space that connects to current routes into the city centre - Charlotte Street, Isambard Brunel Road and Guildhall Walk closed to vehicles (except buses and taxis on Isambard Brunel Road)
- Making road crossing safer - Two new temporary pedestrian crossings on Eastern Parade, between Helena Road and Bruce Road, and Burbidge Grove and Brading Avenue
Sustrans have produced an interactive national map which highlights areas where local authorities around the country have made positive changes in response to Covid 19. The changes are designed to make it easier for people to walk, wheel and cycle safely whilst social distancing during the lockdown and beyond.
Changes include temporary cycle lanes, wider footpaths, barriers to close streets to motor traffic, and reduced speed limits.
