Bus Lane Locations (outside of city centre)

We are in the process of extending bus lane enforcement across the city in areas where there is a problem with bus lane abuse. This will be done using a combination of fixed bus lane enforcement cameras and car-mounted mobile cameras.

The first site identified for this next phase of bus lane enforcement is the bus gate at the junction of Belgrave Middleway with Longmore Street and Horton Square. We are currently in the process of designing minor improvements for this location and consulting with local residents and stakeholders.

These pages will be updated with more detail for this location in due course.
