Traffic enforcement - Coppergate

Planned maintenance to the Planning Portal

Due to an upgrade to the Planning Portal between 9.00am on Friday 24 November and 6.00pm on Saturday 25 November, you'll be unable to view documents online during this time.

Automatic number plate recognition (ANPR)

Traffic enforcement cameras are being used in Coppergate to enforce the bus lane between the junctions with Clifford Street/Nessgate and Piccadilly between 8am and 6pm (7 days a week).

The cameras automatically capture footage of vehicles (including their car registration details) in the restricted hours. There is a human 'back-office' administration involved in reviewing and processing potential penalty charge notices.

Road Signs

Signs are positioned at street level to raise awareness prior to vehicles entering Coppergate.

Restriction times

The access restrictions on Coppergate apply everyday from 8am to 6pm. The restrictions do not apply to pedal cycles.

Between 8am to 6pm, only the following motor vehicles will be able to access Coppergate:

  • 8am to 10am: buses, taxis and private hire vehicles only
  • 10am to 4pm: buses, taxis, private hire vehicles and other vehicles for loading purposes only
  • 4pm to 6pm: buses, taxis and private hire vehicles only
