Consultation status: closed 1 March 2017
We are proposing to install new No stopping at all times restrictions (broken yellow lines) on Beach Haven Road and a new 'Stop' sign with road markings on John Bracken Way.
Why the changes are required
When turning right from John Bracken Way onto Beach Haven Road visibility is obstructed when vehicles are parked too close to the intersection in front of the bus stop. Visibility will improve when restrictions remove cars from this area.
The Stop sign and road markings will encourage drivers to take more time when leaving the intersection.
The proposal received mixed feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and all other supporting evidence, the proposal will proceed with changes to the next stage of detailed planning.
The proposed restrictions will now be extended to before the bus stop outside 154 Beach Haven Road and placing broken yellow lines on the west corner of Tramway Road. These changes will improve the accessibility for buses and also encourage lawful parking at this intersection.
Extend broken yellow lines to before the bus stop
We assessed the request and concluded that extending the restrictions would be beneficial at this location. We have included this in the amended proposal.
New broken yellow lines in front of bus stop on opposite side of road
This bus stop has two driveways in front of it. As it is illegal to park in front of a driveway there is no need to add broken yellow lines at this location.
Any further restrictions beyond these driveways would be an overuse of restrictions.
Proposal will hinder the driveway at 156 Beach Haven Road
The proposed broken yellow lines will begin immediately after this driveway. This driveway is also within the current bus stop markings, therefore the visibility and accessibility to these properties will remain unchanged.
Request for additional works including additional broken yellow lines in other locations, change of traffic controls and installation of cycle lanes.
We expect to begin this work by August 2017, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues.
