As part of the area improvements in Oxford Street associated with the Dolphin Square development, North Somerset Council will be constructing speed cushions and a raised table in Oxford Street to slow traffic.
At the same time, the speed limit along the entire length of Oxford Street and High Street will be changed to 20mph.
Councillor Mike Bell said: “I welcome the reduction of the speed limit and introduction of the speed cushions to slow traffic down Oxford Street. Once Dolphin Square is completely finished this will be a very busy area, with lots of pedestrians. Given that, it is a pity that the council removed the pedestrian crossing. It would have been better to leave it in place in my opinion.”
