2. The effect of the experimental order will be, in LAVINGTON STREET: - (a) to impose one-way westbound traffic, with exemption for pedal cycles, between EWER STREET and GREAT SUFFOLK STREET; (b) to introduce new restrictions on parking, loading and unloading on both sides of the road in the vicinity of Nos. 5 – 11 Lavington Street so prototype ‘boardwalk’ structures can be placed in the carriageway to improve the pedestrian environment; and (c) to reduce in length some ‘at any time’ waiting restrictions, and reposition existing permit holder, ‘shared-use’ and solo motorcycle parking bays to allow for the prototype ‘boardwalk’ structures to be put in place without affecting the number of parking places in Lavington Street.
