Against the £1M Rugby pedestrianisation sign now

The Tory controlled County and Borough councils have this year decided to spend £500,000 each on proposals to pedestrianise part of North Street.

So far there has been no direct consultation with residents of Rugby regarding this major proposal - there will only be consultation after the May elections, and after the decision was made to spend £1M

There is no evidence that this will help businesses in the town centre. Pedestrianisation will lead to more traffic jams and could result in frustrated motorists being driven away from shopping in Rugby town centre to out of town centre.

Restricting access to North Street will increase pressure on the main residential roads near the town centre, including Newbold Road, Railway Terrace, Lawrence Sheriff Street, Lawford Road, Oliver Street, Bilton Road and Dunchurch Road.

Queuing traffic, particularly at rush hour, will become even worse. It may also lead to fewer parking spaces being available at weekend.

This scheme will still allow access to buses and taxis in North Street which could prove to be very dangerous for pedestrians – that’s not pedestrianisation!

When council funding is being cut, there are better ways to spend £1 million.
