Right-hand turn ban confirmed
TRANSPORT chiefs have banned right-turns into a side street from a traffic-choked main road.
Plymouth City Council has prohibited vehicles from going right from Laira Bridge Road into Finnigan Road. Commuters have suffered long delays for the past five weeks during the council's Plymouth's Eastern Corridor improvements on the bridge.
Cllr Mark Coker, the cabinet member for transport, has signed off a decision which will impose more restrictions on traffic.
The council has banned right turns from Laira Bridge Road into Finnigan Road and U-turns on Laira Bridge Road and Finnigan Road.

Council officers said the changes provided "capacity improvements" and allowed improvements to pedestrian and cycling facilities. Authority documents show it held a three-week consultation.
