Salford City Council - Record of Decision


I, Councillor Mike McCusker, Lead Member for Planning, Transport and Sustainable Development, in exercise of the powers contained within the Council Constitution, do hereby:


Authorise the permanent making of the Traffic Regulation Order below, in the modified form, as set out in the report:


City Of Salford (Greenleach Lane, Lumber Lane and Roe Green Area, Salford) 2022


The reasons are: That the necessary action be taken under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 to advertise the intention to make the Traffic Order to introduce City of Salford (Greenleach Lane, Lumber Lane and Roe Green Area, Salford) 2022 as a permanent Traffic Order. Implementation of this order will promote a safer environment for all highway users when entering and exiting side road junctions, as well as allow pedestrians to see and be seen when crossing the road.


Options considered and rejected were: Officers considered a more onerous parking scheme which was originally advertised. This included restrictions along Summerfield Road and at the junction of Glen Avenue and Mulgrave Road, as well as longer lengths on Greenleach Lane. Due to the representations raised by the local community this original proposal has been revised to lessen the impact on local residents and businesses whilst still retaining meaningful improvements in road safety where deemed necessary. 


Assessment of risk: Low

The scheme has been designed in accordance with the Traffic Signs Manual and Traffic Sign Regulations and General Directions 2016. The scheme will contribute to improving the safety of all highway users. 


The source of funding: The scheme has been funded by the Worsley & Boothstown Highways Devolved Budget.


Legal advice obtained: The Council, by virtue of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 can introduce orders to manage traffic. Where Traffic Regulation Orders are required, they should not give rise to any particular legal implications provided the works and procedures are carried out in accordance with the relevant statutory requirements, which would include the consideration of any objections to a proposed Traffic Regulation Order.


Financial advice obtained: The scheme is being funded by the Worsley & Boothstown Highways Devolved Capital Budget. Making the scheme permanent in the modified form as recommended will incur no further financial costs as there would be a reduction in the scope of work required compared to the original proposal.


Procurement advice obtained: There are no procurement implications contained within this report.


HR implications: N/A


Climate Change implications: N/A
