Kerbing makes experimental right-turn ban clear
Concrete kerbing and clearer signs have been installed to strengthen the right-turn ban at the Stocklake-Douglas Road junction in Aylesbury.
And contractors were out on Friday evening to paint clear white lining to guide traffic travelling towards Tring Road, and turning left into Bellingham Way.
Mark Shaw, Buckinghamshire County Council Deputy Leader and Transport Cabinet Member said residents had reported motorists continuing to turn right since the ban came into force on 19 August.
"This experiment is in response to collisions involving vehicles turning right, and we want to do all we can to make it safer for those using the junction," said Mark. "These measures will make it clearer that right turns are not allowed."
In the coming six months residents will be asked for their feedback via Buckinghamshire County Council website's 'Have Your Say' page until 19 February 2020. Mark said feedback would be collated and presented to him and his Head of Highways to decide whether the right-turn ban should be permanent.
