Salford City Council - Record of Decision
City of Salford (Boothshall Way & Juniper Gardens) (Prohibition and Restriction of Waiting) Order 2021
The Reasons are: A request has been received from Worsley and Boothstown Community Committee following complaints from local residents to provide measures on Boothshall Way and close to its junction with Juniper Gardens to deal with road safety and access issues in the area.
Boothshall way is a residential road in Boothstown which is fronted by St Andrews C.E. Primary School. There is also a priority chicane system to the north of the school entrance which narrows the carriageway and hence helps reduce vehicle speeds on the approach to the school.
Complaints have been received that particularly at school opening and closing vehicles are parking on both sides of Boothshall Way which is causing access problems for vehicles and also making it difficult for pedestrians to cross Boothshall way at this location. Parking is also restricting access at the Boothshall Way/Juniper Gardens junction by obscuring visibility.
The proposals, as shown on the attached plan seek to introduce No waiting at a time parking restriction (Double Yellow Lines) and daytime weekday restrictions opposite the school (Single Yellow Lines) as indicated on the attached plan.
It is considered that these proposed measures will improve road safety and access for both pedestrians and vehicles.
Assessment of Risk: Implementation of the restrictions would improve visibility for vehicles accessing leaving both Juniper Gardens and Leigh Road, it will also allow pedestrians to cross the junctions more safely with improved visibility thereby decrease the risk of collisions.
The source of funding: The scheme is being funded from Highways Block 3 devolved allocation for Worsley & Boothstown, 2021-2022.
Financial Advice obtained:
The cost of the proposed schemes will be met from the approved Highways Block 3 devolved capital and revenue allocations for Worsley & Boothstown, in the 2021-2022 financial year.
Procurement Advice obtained: There are no procurement implications contained within this report.
