Remove traffic lane on King George V Drive East approach to junction. Provide cycle route priority at alleyway and private driveway. Resurface footway.

NS36 King George V Drive East Road Closure: Replace block paving at King George V Drive East road-end with surface appropriate for cycling. Provide dropped kerbs and cycle bypass at existing road closure and appropriate signing/markings.

Resurface carriageway where required to ensure appropriate surface for cyclists. Provide appropriate premium quality route signing and markings. Provide road humps to reduce speeds.

NS39 Junction of King George V Drive East/Heath Park Avenue/Heath Halt Road:

  • Option 1: Minor improvements to existing layout and signing to improve continuity for cyclists. Also option to provide raised table through junction to reduce speeds and highlight crossing movement.

NS40 Heath Halt Road from Heath Park Avenue to Lake Road North:

  • Option 1: Provide road humps across full length to reduce vehicle speeds and make route less attractive to motor vehicles.
