The state of the lay-by lanes at the time of the arena opening will be similar, with one permanently changed and others with no construction schedule.For more, including a map, go to AYW.
The function of lay-by lanes is to take traffic stopped for loading or unloading out of travel lanes. Fewer lay-by lanes mean there is a higher degree of risk for vehicle/vehicle and vehicle/pedestrian conflicts. It also potentially means increased congestion around the arena block.
Will this be on the agenda of the meeting tomorrow? Can't say. The agenda's not publicly circulated.
