Bridge Street Traffic – public consultation

Phillip Gray, Chairman of CTC Northampton, writes

Northamptonshire County Council’s Highways Department is currently carrying out a consultation on changes to Northampton’s town centre traffic routes. These include closing Bridge Street permanently to northbound traffic “except buses” and making “all traffic” on Gold Street one-way.

Phillip can find no evidence that cyclists and the impact on cycle routes (in particular National Cycle Route No 6) have been taken into account. No information appears to be available on the County Council website.

Closing date for the consultation is 24 February. You can submit views or questions to or telephone 01604 883400.

It would be helpful if you could inform our Right-to-Ride representative, John Cutler (, and our Chair, Phillip Gray ( if you submit any comments.
