Drivers in Burton reminded of bus gate order on town's High Street

Posted on Wednesday 1st September 2021
Burton High Street newsroom

Burton High Street

Drivers in Burton are being reminded that fixed penalty notices will be issued to vehicle owners flouting the new bus gate order on the town’s High Street from this Monday, September 6.

The bus gate, operated by an Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) camera, has been installed as part of a recent improvement scheme in the town centre.

The bus gate is at High Street’s junction with New Street and Lichfield Street through to the junction with Worthington Way, permitting only buses and bicycles all day with taxis and loading permitted between the hours of 4pm and 10am.

By installing the bus gate, pedestrian safety will be improved on High Street as through traffic, other than buses and taxis, will be removed. It will also mean maintenance of the previous automated bollards won’t be needed.

Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet member for highways and transport David Williams said:

The new bus gate forms part of a wider package of improvements in Burton’s High Street and will improve pedestrian safety in the area.

While the camera has been operational for a few weeks now, so far drivers flouting the order have been issued with warning notices. From Monday fixed penalty notices will be issued instead, so we’d like to remind everyone that the order in in place. We will continue to work with East Staffordshire Borough Council to regenerate Burton town centre.”
