Salford City Council - Record of Decision

 

I, Councillor Mike McCusker, 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 in respect of the A580 East Lancashire Road junction with Barton Road, in the form given in the Notice of Proposals in Appendix A of the report.

 

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, (THE CITY OF SALFORD) (PROHIBITION OF U-TURN AND PROHIBITION OF RIGHT TURNS) ORDER 2021

 

Assessment of Risk: Implementation of the restrictions would improve road safety and reduce the risk of serious and fatal collisions at A580 East Lancashire Road, junction with Barton Road. The restrictions will be signed in accordance with the Traffic Signs Manual and Traffic Sign Regulations and General Directions (TSRGD 2016).

 

The source of funding: The professional fees for the scheme will be met from the Highways DfT Block Capital allocation for Local Safety Schemes.  There is budget provision in the Capital Programme for 21/22 to meet the costs of the overall scheme.

 

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 TRO.

 

Financial Advice obtained: The cost of the proposed scheme will be met from the approved Highways DfT Block Capital allocation for Local Safety Schemes, from the budget provision in the Capital Programme for 21/22.

Decision:

Salford City Council - Record of Decision

 

I, Councillor McCusker, 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 in respect of the Claremont and Weaste Area, following consideration of objections and the amendments in the form given in the revised proposals, as set out in the report.

 

The Reasons are:

Dronfield Road Area is a residential area apart from Pendleton Sixth Form College.

 

In relation to the college, complaints have been received concerning students and parents parking right up to junctions, restricting visibility for other drivers as well as pedestrians trying to cross the junctions of Dronfield Road with Denstone Road, Trenant Road, Longmead Road and Caldy Road.

 

The proposals in the report will improve access and road safety along Dronfield Road and on the adjacent streets for emergency service vehicles as well as motorists and pedestrians.

 

Assessment of Risk:

The TRO restrictions would be an effective measure at removing obstructive parking on the junctions, with the reduced lengths of restrictions on the junctions obviously the visibility will not be as good as with 10m protection. But as the area is proposed to be 20mph and Dronfield Road is traffic calmed, it is considered the risk is minimal and the impact on kerbside parking will be minimal, which was the biggest concern of the local residents.

 

The restrictions will be marked out in accordance with the Traffic Signs Manual and Traffic Sign Regulations and General Directions. (TSRGD 2016).

 

Legal Advice obtained:

Date provided: 30/07/2021

Financial Advice obtained: 

The cost of the proposed schemes will be met by Community Committee Highways Task Group.

 

Procurement Advice obtained: N/A
