A Huddersfield town centre road is closed six days a week for the next two months.
Vehicles are currently banned from using High Street from the bus station towards the town hall while pavement upgrade works are completed.
It is closed Monday to Friday and Sundays until February 28.
And with new ‘bus gates’ due to be activated on February 1 the move effectively spells the end of the use of the road for most drivers during the day.
Bus gates are being installed at the junction with Albion Street which will monitor the vehicles using the road to access Ramsden Street.

It will be off-limits to members of the public between 8am and 6pm.
Anyone who breaks the rules will be fined £60 or £30 if they cough up within 21 days.
The current closure means many buses are diverting and drivers heading for Ramsden Street must approach from Albion Street or Alfred Street by the Queensgate Market car park.
Kirklees Council said the diversion could be in place until March or April.
Vehicles leaving the town centre from Albion Street are still able to drive westbound along High Street towards the ring road.
The Examiner revealed last year that disabled drivers will not be exempt from the fines if they pass through the bus gate trying to access the disabled spaces near the town hall.

The controversial bus gate proposal was approved by councillors last April.
It will see the roads marked up and cameras fitted but no physical gates or bollards will be installed.
Other bus gates – which scan vehicle registration plates – will be installed around Westgate, Kirkgate and St George’s Square to allow buses to flow more freely.
