Consultation status: closed 28 March 2017
We are proposing to:
- Install new No stopping at all times restrictions (broken yellow lines) on Carlisle Road.
- Upgrade existing bus stops to an ATCOP standard.
Why the changes are needed
Residents are unable to see oncoming traffic whilst leaving their driveways and this is caused by vehicles parking on Carlisle Road. The No stopping at all times restrictions will improve visibility for residents.
Bus stops are also being upgraded to an
The proposal received mixed feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and other supporting evidence, the proposal will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning.
This project will be combined with the proposed mid-block pedestrian crossing at this location and built at the same time.
The grass berms should be removed and the road widened to allow for more parking.
Removing the grass berm and widening the road to provide more parking is outside the scope of this project. The new parking restrictions are needed for safety and alternative parking spaces are available in surrounding streets.
Extend parking restrictions on the northern side of Carlisle Road to join the existing broken yellow lines outside 71 Carlisle Road.
We do not consider extending the restrictions along the northern section of the road necessary to improve visibility.
Visitors will have nowhere to park.
The new parking restrictions are required for safety and visibility reasons. Alternative on-street parking is available in surrounding streets.
Speed bumps should be installed along with parking restrictions.
We did not consider speed bumps on Carlisle Road due to the high traffic volumes and demand. The proposed central island as part of the pedestrian will also help to slow driver speed.
We expect to start this work by June 2018, subject to further design changes or funding issues.
Contractors will issue
