Progress on Exeter and Barnstaple bus lane improvements
The Devon County Council Cabinet has agreed to advertise traffic regulation orders for a £525,000 bus lane scheme in Roundswell and a £400,000 scheme in Exeter City Centre.
Schemes are part of the Bus Service Improvement Plan (BSIP) and will use a share of £14.1 million BSIP funding by the Department of Transport.
Benefits include reduced travel times with improved bus priority and more direct routes.
Although public consultations have been carried out on both scheme proposals, the traffic regulations will enable further consultation to take place.
Action T17. Enhance bus priority measures.
