U-turn on no entry closer

By Martin Neville

CAMPAIGNERS who called for a Newport street to be re-opened to two-way traffic may have won their battle.

As previously reported, more than 3,000 people signed a petition calling for Chapel Street to be re-opened to traffic coming from New Street.

Now the Isle of Wight Council is formally advertising to revoke the no entry regulation to allow vehicles to proceed from New Street into Chapel Street.

The authority has also advertised a one-way restriction in Chapel Street, in a west to east direction, from its junction with Union Street to its junction with St James Street.

Consultation on both proposals runs until Friday, March 29 when a formal decision will be made.
