A controversial bus lane that caught out 23 thousand drivers in Preston City Centre is set to return.
Lancashire County Council collected almost one-and-a-half million pounds in fines from motorists who drove down the prohibited route.
But the authority was forced to refund the cash after an investigation found warning signs were inadequate.
Now the bus lane is on its way back.

Police are appealing for witnesses following a "deliberate" fire at at a terraced house in Preston.
The fire on Wellington Road is said to have started at around 3pm on Saturday July 8th.
Police say that no-one was at home when the fire started, although the property has been significantly damaged.
“This incident could have been a lot worse and it is lucky that nobody was hurt and the fire did not spread to any neighbouring properties. However it did cause a large amount of damage to the house in question.
“The fires were started in broad daylight and we believe somebody may have been in the area at the time who saw or heard something that didn’t seem quite right. If you have any information, we would urge you to contact us as soon as possible.”
Police have asked anyone with information to call them on (01772) 209746 or 101, quoting log number 979 of July 8th.
Alternatively, witnesses can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, or online at Crimestoppers-uk.org.

Eight-year-old Saffie Rose Roussos has been described as a "beautiful little girl" by the headteacher of her school.
"The thought that anyone could go out to a concert and not come home is heartbreaking.
"Saffie was simply a beautiful little girl in every aspect of the word. She was loved by everyone and her warmth and kindness will be remembered fondly. Saffie was quiet and unassuming with a creative flair."
Chris Upton said staff are focusing on helping pupils and staff cope with the news and that specialist support from Lancashire County Council have been called in to help.
