Charles Cross Transport Improvement Scheme

  • Charles Cross


Charles Cross roundabout, with Charles Church at its centre, is one of the key junctions on Plymouth’s transport network, handles high volumes of traffic and is used by the majority of the city’s bus routes. It is also well-used by pedestrians.

The Charles Cross Transport Improvements Scheme will reduce delays and improve traffic flow by increasing capacity for all vehicles whilst making crossings friendlier for pedestrians and cyclists.

The scheme will support Plymouth and South West Devon Joint Local Plan by providing the roads needed to reinforce the city as a regional centre for shopping, employment, education and leisure.

The main body of the work is expected to begin in early 2019 and is scheduled to finish in time for Christmas.
