Traffic measures at Christmas

Some of the measures designed to improve the flow of traffic around the city area are:

Variable Message Signing will be used on all the major routes giving travel advice to drivers, like availability of car parking;

No right-hand turns in or out of Charlotte Street car park for drivers from 25 November to relieve congestion and help stop traffic jams;

Sunday Park and Ride for a further six Sunday’s and operating until 9.30pm on fifteen evenings in the run-up to Christmas;

Increased patrols by Civil Enforcement Officers to ensure responsible, safe parking by drivers.

Embargoed all road works except for emergencies.

For the Bath Christmas Market, coaches must registered to use designated drop-off points and park at one of the designated coach parks. There will be:

Better arrangements for coaches travelling to Bath. New traffic orders for North Parade, Orange Grove, High Street, and Grand Parade mean coaches not registered will be moved on;

Restrictions to coach parking on Bathwick Hill, Bear Flats and the inbound carriageway of Wellsway will ensure the normal bus and vehicle traffic isn’t hindered and minimise any inconvenience to residents from coaches parking on the edge of private properties;

Vigorous enforcement of minibuses coming to the city that have not registered.
