Wilton Road Bus Lane Problems

Harry Barron has emailed us with a concern that the bus / taxi / cycle lane on Wilton Road, near to Shirley infant school, is being abused. All too often drivers illegally drive through it, particularly during rush hour. Harry feels that this degrades the route’s appeal to cyclists and reduces safety in the area considering it is next to a primary school on a road with many parked cars. Harry suggests that the council put in place automatic bollards or a traffic camera.

    I tried to raise issues with access to Wilton Road with the council earlier this year. There was little interest.

    I have lost count of the number of drivers I see abusing access and the bus lane itself. I have even been on a bus where the bus driver has had to stand his/her ground until a buslane abuser reverses back out of the way.
