New leisure centre work – temporary traffic lights on Bar End Road

To allow for a new sewer connection to be built for the new leisure centre, traffic light control will remain in place on Bar End Road into next week (w/c September 23). 

It is likely to cause some delays in peak periods and could impact on Park & Ride users, with Barfield car park most affected.

A peak hours only bus service (7.30 - 9.30am and 3.30 - 5.30pm) will run between Barfield car park and the Broadway. Barfield Car Park will not be served by Park & Ride buses at other times.

Cars leaving the Barfield site will not be able to turn right at the car park exit.  They will need to turn left onto Barfield Close, head towards town and then turn left onto Bar End Road.

St Catherine’s Park & Ride is available as an alternative to Barfield for destinations beyond the Broadway. More information on alternative Park & Ride sites is available here.
