THE new McDonald's restaurant planned for the town centre will require changes to the road layout.

Planning permission was granted for the new McDonalds's on Upper New Street last year and in addition to that, detailled drawings for access arrangements were submitted.

The new drive-through restaurant will be accessed from Upper New Street which will become four lanes from the mini roundabout to the junction.

One lane will remain for traffic coming off Westway towards Morrisons and three lanes leaving Morrisons towards Westway. There will be a dedicated lane for traffic turning right into McDonald's.

Vehicles coming out of McDonald's will have to turn left as there will be no right turn towards Westway.
