There is fresh hope that traffic problems on Cricklade Street in Cirencester could finally solved.

The changes made to parking and traffic management in the town centre in 2017 are currently under review.

Castle Street was made one-way as part of these changes, which had the knock-on effect of some drivers using Cricklade Street to leave the town centre instead.

This is despite the fact Cricklade Street is supposed to be pedestrianised from 9.30am to 4.30pm, Monday to Saturday.

There have been regular complaints about drivers flouting these rules ever since, although others have argued the restrictions have not been made clear enough.

A statement on the Cirencester Town Council website says: "Gloucestershire County Council (GCC) is now preparing plans for a statutory traffic regulation order review which aims to address issues in Cricklade Street where drivers continue to ignore the restricted access and pedestrian zone times.

"We have been working closely with GCC and hope this will also be an opportunity to provide better designated provision for taxi drivers and blue badge holders and improve access through Dyer Street. Further information on timescales should be available before the end of the year.

A spokesperson for Gloucestershire County Council said: “We are currently reviewing parking and traffic management in Cirencester Town Centre, which will include Cricklade Street.

"We will be asking for the public to give feedback on the plans when we start public consultation in due course.”
