A NEW Zebra crossing has been installed on Bedford Place ahead of the road's controversial reopening tomorrow.

The crossing was put in last night, and a new 20mph limit has been implemented.

Daily Echo:

The road, which was closed last summer and pedestrianised to support businesses during the pandemic, will reopen tomorrow at 8am.


However, although Bedford Place will reopen, the council has confirmed that Carlton Place and Lower Banister Street will continue to remain closed to traffic with a final decision on the scheme expected later this year.
