Bus lanes

Proposed changes to bus lane operating times

Notice was given on 27 November 2023 that Hull City Council proposes to make orders under Sections 1, 2(1) to (3), 4(2) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, and in pursuance of powers granted by the Secretary of State under Section 74 and Part 2 of Schedule 8 and under Paragraph 8 of Schedule 9 of the Traffic Management Act 2004.

Following the decision by the council’s cabinet in October, traffic regulation orders (TROs) have now been initiated.

The effect of the orders will be to reduce the operational times of all the existing bus lanes in the city to 7am to 9.30am and 4pm to 6.30pm, Monday to Saturday. This balances the needs of everyone using the roads, and still gives priority at peak times to cyclists and those using public transport.

The waiting and loading restrictions in operation on Beverley Road, Spring Bank and Holderness Road will also change. The operating times will match the times the bus lanes are in operation.

The changes will enable us to balance the different demands on road space. As well as optimise efficient use of the bus lanes for cyclists and public transport during periods of peak hour travel.
