CHANGES to a road layout will start this week in a bid to tackle air quality in a busy street.

Pollution levels in Rottingdean have been in breach of the legal limit set by the Government.

From Friday, Brighton and Hove City Council will begin a trial to stop traffic building up in High Street.

A ban on right turns out of West Street will be imposed to prevent cars blocking the road.

And a no stopping zone will be enforced from 66 to 29 High Street.

Meanwhile a temporary chicane will be put in place outside 80-82 High Street giving priority to northbound traffic.

The changes will be in place for up to 18 months.

City council environment chief Councillor Anne Pissaridou said: “The health and wellbeing of our residents is paramount and reductions in vehicle emissions.”
