These cross streets will provide some of the functions that would support the new George Street and First New Town design, such as
loading and servicing bays
This project only includes the section of Hanover Street which sits north of George Street, referred to as Hanover Street (north). We will deliver changes to the section of Hanover Street south of George Street as part of the Meadows to George Street active travel project.
No changes are proposed to the existing layout, function or operation of the section of Castle Street which is located on the south side of George Street.
