A bus lane in Barking town centre which was suspended to speed up the flow of traffic caused by road works is now back in use.

Drivers are being warned they will be fined if they turn right out of the car park from James Street into the bus lane in Linton Road.

The bus lane had been suspended due to the installation of new drains that had resulted in a section on North Street, between Adeliza Court and George Street, being closed.

This had resulted in 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, was suspended.

It is now back in full use.
