Weekend pedestrianisation of Northcote Road begins this Saturday
Published: Wednesday, April 13, 2022
Residents are being reminded that Northcote Road will be pedestrianised again this weekend in a boost for local businesses.
Starting this Saturday (April 16) and continuing until the end of September, the popular shopping and leisure destination will be closed to traffic every weekend.
The change will mean its many bars and restaurants will be able to utilise outside space to promote al-fresco drinking and dining.
The pedestrianisation was first arranged in the summer of 2020 when lockdown rules had been eased – so that its hospitality businesses could re-open safely by using the extra space to maintain social distancing.
Having proved successful last summer it is being repeated this year.
