At the King Street and Queen Street intersection in downtown Bolton, turning trucks often went over boulevards and sidewalks, due to a shortage of space, creating safety concerns for pedestrians. As a result of this a restriction prohibiting trucks from turning at the intersection was implemented.
The turn restrictions will remain in place to prevent local delivery vehicles (local deliveries and collections trucks are not permitted to turn at the intersection but are exempt from heavy truck restrictions if the location cannot be reached by any other road and provided that the route taken is the shortest possible to and from the location on the truck restricted route) from turning at King Street and Queen Street.
