Here’s how the city centre road systems is to work when the Fishergate bus lane cameras are turned back on.


Lancashire County Council is preparing to reinstate the controversial camera.

It says changes to Lune Street, allowing cars to turn right out of the St George’s Shopping Centre car park and join Ringway, should help alleviate pressure on the roads.

A map has been issued by the county council explaining the routes for motorists approaching Fishergate.

The no right turn out of Butler Street, by the railway station, remains in operation and will be enforced from Monday 6 November along with the restricted bus lane from Mount Street to Corporation Street.


No cars will be allowed down this section of Fishergate between 11am to 6pm each day.

Anyone driving along this section faces a £60 penalty charge notice.

The county council had to abandon the Fishergate bus lane earlier this year after an inspector ruled there was inadequate signage when six drivers appealed their fines.
