Navigation Road Low Traffic Neighbourhood Trial review

We've been carrying out a Low Traffic Neighbourhood (LTN) Trial on Navigation Road since October 2021.

We carried out a survey to gain feedback on how you think the trial has gone. It’s important to us that residents were able have a say on how the trial went, and we wanted to gather views on whether to make the Navigation Road scheme permanent.

The online survey is now closed, we are reviewing the feedback received and will be presenting a report to Executive Member decision for consideration before a final decision is made on the trial.

The Navigation Road scheme supports the following changes:

  • improve road safety for residents in the neighbourhood
  • reduce through-traffic on Navigation Road
  • improve our city’s north-south cycle route
  • improve access at Hungate Bridge to increase visibility and safety for pedestrians and cyclists

The Navigation Road LTN Trial introduced a short southbound section of one-way road between Rowntree Wharf and Rosemary Place, to reduce through-traffic from the city centre.

We also installed 2 enclosed cycle lanes either side of the one-way section, to improve cyclist safety.

At the end of the trial period for the Navigation Road LTN Trial a final assessment will be produced. Officers will present data and views gathered over the whole period of the trial, before delivering a report to Executive Member decision for consideration on whether the scheme should be made permanent.
