Bitterne Park Triangle Improvements

Work has commenced on improvements at Bitterne Park Triangle. These include:

  • Widening a section of footway between Whitworth Crescent and Cobden Bridge to make it a shared cycleway.
  • Widening the entrance to Riverside Park to allow better access for people cycling.
  • Upgrading traffic signal detection and communications so that the signals can respond better to demand.
  • Upgrading traffic signals to communicate with buses and be held on green for longer when an approaching bus is running behind its timetable. 

The work will take place in three phases, but Whitworth Crescent will be closed at the junction of Cobden Avenue for the duration of the works.

Full information on works, closures and diversions is available here.
