Meadowgate and Hereward Street in Bourne could be made one-way
A one-way system could be introduced on a town centre route.
The proposal for Meadowgate and Hereward Street in Bourne has been made by Sue Woolley (Con), Conservative councillor for Lincolnshire county, South Kesteven district, and Bourne town councils.
On Tuesday (April 26) Coun Woolley addressed town councillors and said: “There is a solid line of parked cars down Meadowgate.
“As time goes on, the road gets busier and more dangerous. It is just mayhem.”
Highways engineers would need to assess the proposal and it would need public consultation before any change.The process could take ‘a couple of years’, Coun Woolley warned.
Bourne town councillors agreed with her proposal.
Coun Brenda Johnson said: “It really needs doing. It just keeps getting worse and worse.”
Coun Colin Pattison said: “That road is absolute chaos.”
Coun Woolley took a senior highways officer around the Meadowgate area on Thursday last week (April 21) to show the extent of the traffic.
She will return to Bourne Town Council in September to give an update on what is happening.
- Four disabled car parking spaces will be being installed in North Street and West Street after a concerned resident contacted Coun Woolley to point out that there was no such spaces available in the town centre. No new parking spaces will be created but two existing spots will be converted through signage.
