One of the new signs put up on side streets around the Corporation Street bus gate has already been flattened.

Pedder Street is now a no-right turn into Leighton Street and doesn’t link through to Maudland Road.

However one taxi driver reportedly got confused by the new layout and flattened a cycle lane sign in the process.

Pictures sent to Blog Preston show the new sign which is now flattened to the ground. The sign has since been removed.

The sign was described as ‘battered’ and council workers were unable to pull it back into place Pic: David Gate

A raft of changes of streets around the Corporation Street bus gate were introduced on the same day enforcement went live – Tuesday 21 May – of the new bus-only lane.

Blog Preston contacted Lancashire County Council for further comment but received no response by the time of publication.
