Developer David Wilson Homes has revealed plans to build a bus gate at its new Kingfisher Meadows estate to ensure only buses can use it.
A public consultation has revealed that residents preferred to see the bus gate enforced by a rising bollard system. However, the city council suggested the use of a CCTV system because rising bollards elsewhere in the county had proved to be unreliable.
A report said: "The provision of an effective bus gate therefore is essential so that general traffic from the second phase [of Kingfisher Meadow] uses the access provided on Green Lane."
A spokesperson for David Wilson Homes said: "As such, in agreement with the county council, we are now looking at alternatives to best enforce the bus gate and designs for signage and a CCTV camera system are being prepared.
"The county council has extensive experience of using CCTV across the county. The CCTV uses Automatic Number Plate Recognition on site to detect an offence.
"The bus gate will be installed 2020."
