A decision on plans for a second bus gate in Bath city centre is expected to be made by councillors on Wednesday.

The proposal is to ban all vehicles other than buses and taxis using the eastbound side of Dorchester Street for an 18-month trial period.

The carriageway between St James Parade and the railway station would become a bus lane between 10:00 and 16:00 BST under the new scheme.

The local authority believes the £20,000 scheme will reduce congestion.

A bus gate is already in operation between Northgate Street and Pulteney Bridge.
