Bus lane set for removal

A bus lane on the A3024 in Southampton, Hampshire — installed in 2020 at a cost to taxpayers of £83,000 — is set for removal.

Southampton City Council will undertake overnight work to remove the temporary lane on Bitterne Road West, in the Bitterne area of the city, on Monday 31st May.

The Conservative-run council said it made the decision after more than 400 residents objected to the scheme.

The opposition Labour Party, which lost control of the council earlier this month, said the move to remove the lane was ‘short-sighted’.
