NEWS FLASH!! PLEASE READ AND SHARE WITH AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE ~ Thank you

THIS NEWS IS HOPEFULLY WHAT EVERYONE HAS BEEN WAITING TO HEAR ABOUT THE COURT DRIVE "SHARED SPACE" ROAD SCHEME.

Update on Court Drive

Thanks to everyone who has conta...
cted us about the new "shared space" road scheme in Dunstable over the past few months This new approach to street design has provoked strong reactions. We've been carefully monitoring these as well as giving some time to allow the scheme to bed in.

A number of you have stressed the need for lanes to be more clearly deliniated and for more guidance to be given about where and how to give way to other road users. We're taking this feedback on board and are exploring permanent measures that will give more clarity to drivers about how the scheme should work.

To address these concerns in the short term, we will this evening (subject to weather conditions) be installing temporary white lines in the following locations:

- Kingsway / College Drive junction
- On Court Drive either side of the Asda roundabout
- On Queensway at the 90 degree bends

The permanent measures, which will be more in keeping with the concept of shared space, should be in place by the summer.

We will continue to monitor the scheme to see if other imporovements are needed and we will continue to keep you updated about the permenant features and any further improvements.

You can view a drawing of where the white lines will be installed on our website
