1. To introduce a prohibition of vehicles in Northam Road - between Princes Street and Six Dials and Six Dials - between Northam Road and Brintons Road. The restriction will apply at those times which Southampton City Council considers appropriate on the days that Southampton Football Club First Team matches are played or any other events are held at St Mary's Stadium.
It is anticipated that the usual period the restriction would apply is likely to be no more than 15 minutes at the end of a football match, to assist in dispersal of pedestrians from the area.
2. To clarify the exemptions applying to the prohibition of vehicles/prohibition of motor vehicles restrictions.
The Order will come into operation on 8th February 2018
The Council will be considering in due course whether the provisions of the Order shall continue in force indefinitely.
Any person may object to the making of an Order for the purpose of such indefinite continuation, within six months of this Experimental Order coming into force, or within six months of any subsequent variation or modification to this Order coming into force, whichever may be the later.
Any such objection must be in writing, stating the grounds on which it is made, quoting the Order title and send to the Highways Legal Team at Southampton City Council, Civic Centre, Southampton, SO14 7LY or via email to Traffic.Orders.Legal@southampton.gov.uk
Copies of the Order, map and statement of reasons for proposing may be inspected during normal working hours at Civic Centre, Southampton, SO14 7LY. Further information may also be obtained from the Highways division on 023 8079 8064.
