From Councillor Mark Wright’s latest Cabot eNews:
“At the same Cabinet meeting as the Cumberland Basin plans, the Mayor’s Clean Air plan was passed. It now fuses the two previous options, of a small-area diesel ban and a wider-area charging zone. It also contains the unexpected detail that Cumberland Road will be closed to eastbound traffic!
This comes as a total shock and no further details are available yet, including what the purpose of the closure is – as Cumberland Rd is less polluted than the alternate route of Hotwell Rd. Critical details are obviously where the “No Entry” points will be, whether the aim is to substantially increase bus use of the road instead.”
