A decision over a £2.75m shake-up of how traffic uses the Prince of Wales Road area of Norwich will be made today.
The project would see changes in Prince of Wales Road, Rose Lane, Mountergate, King Street and Upper King Street.
It would see Rose Lane narrowed and the bus lane removed, although the original plan to close off Prince of Wales Road to traffic has been scrapped.
New contraflow cycle lanes would be installed in Prince of Wales Road and Bank Street, with a shared cycleway in King Street.
There would also be a new two-way link between Prince of Wales Road and Mountergate. That would mean traffic leaving Mountergate, including the new car park, would be able to turn right towards the station, rather than being forced left.
