Title of scheme

Shrewsbury – Crowmeole Lane: Experimental Prohibition of Motor Vehicles (except buses)


This experimental order will improve pedestrian and cyclist safety by making Crowmeole Lane easier to negotiate for non-motorised users.

It will also support active travel choices for journeys to work and exercise in response to the Covic-19 pandemic, and promote the use of sustainable modes of travel with a safe link route for pedestrians and cyclists, for both commuter and leisure purposes. And it will provide connection links to the existing cycle network on Mytton Oak Road and Radbrook Road.

The existing bus service provision will not be impacted.
