Travel advice for road users

Where possible, road users are advised to look for alternative routes, travel outside of peak times and consider public transport options.

People who have to drive into the city should plan ahead, allow more travel time or consider travelling outside peak hours.


What are we doing?

Our 24-hour control centre are constantly monitoring traffic flow on and around Regent Road, and on other affected routes into the city. Where possible, traffic engineers in our Urban Traffic Control Team, will alter traffic signals to improve journey times.
