Today I received an email reply from MK Council with a proposed plan for the new Bus Turning lanes in the City Centre.
Looks like each turning lane is going to be “kerbed” off from other traffic on the actual turn, So normal traffic will turn left from the centre lane instead.
This means on both corners the buses will not have to stop for the traffic lights, being able to just drive straight through. Should save a couple of minutes.
Buses coming from the Rail Station, that turn right from Midsummer Boulevard to Saxon Gate will get prioity over other traffic with a bus activated traffic light at the end of Midsummer Bus Lane, Letting the bus ahead of the queue for the “proper” traffic lights at the Junction.
