Barking and Dagenham Council has suspended a bus lane in Barking town centre to try and ease traffic caused by road works.

The installation of new drains has resulted in the closure of a section on North Street, between Adeliza Court and George Street, until December 15.

This has had a knock on effect on drivers leaving the London Road Car Park so to try and speed up the flow out of the car park from James Street, the bus lane on the right into Linton Road, will be suspended until December 15.

This will allow cars to turn right back towards London Road.

However motorists are being warned they face being fined if they leave the car park through the entrance to avoid any queues.
