Hill Street will be closed southbound from May to September. After the fiasco last time this happened, this time a proper diversion has been planned. Cyclists will still be able to turn right into Hill Street, but then they will be diverted across the pavement and down John Bright Street. The right turn from Station Street will be re-instated to allow one to return to Hill Street. Northbound cyclists can either take the same route, or stay with the heavy traffic in Hill Street.
Sustrans told us, "If someone bothers to tell us they need to close a route, we will arrange a diversion".
