Salford City Council - Record of Decision
I, Councillor Antrobus, Lead Member for Planning and Sustainable Development, in exercise of the powers contained within the Council Constitution, do hereby authorise the making of the Traffic Regulation Order to introduce ‘CITY OF SALFORD (ROSTON ROAD, SALFORD) (PROHIBITION OF WAITING) ORDER 2019-20.’
The Reasons are: Currently there is unrestricted parking at the A576 Leicester Road/Roston Road/Coke Street West junction; parked vehicles reduces visibility and safety at the junction. Similar complaints have been made at the junction of Roston Road and Roston Court.
A request made to the East Salford Community Committee Highways Task Group, the proposals seek to install junction protection through double yellow lines indicating no waiting at any time, in order to remove parking. These restrictions will ensure junctions are kept clear from parked vehicles and will improve the junction, ensuring safer accessibility for residents, visitors and other vehicles.
‘Transport for Greater Manchester’ (TfGM) have fully supported the introduction of these restrictions to assist bus movement and to ensure passengers can board/alight directly onto the footway.
This proposal will assist in promoting safe manoeuvres at the junctions as well as providing improvements for bus passengers
Assessment of Risk:
The restrictions will be marked out in accordance with the Traffic Signs Manual and Traffic Sign Regulations and General Directions. (TSRGD 2016).
A Traffic Regulation Order will be required to introduce the prohibition of waiting restrictions. This 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 the proposed TRO.
The cost of the proposed scheme will be met from the Highways devolved capital allocation for East Salford, in the 2019-20 financial year.
Procurement Advice obtained: Date provided: 9th August 2019.
