Salford City Council - Record of Decision


I, Councillor Derek 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 ‘Prohibition and Restriction of Waiting, on Overdale and Linksway, Swinton South’ Order 2019.


The Reasons are:

A request was made to Urban Vision from the Swinton and Pendlebury Highway Task Group to introduce a Prohibition of Waiting Traffic Regulation Order on Overdale and Linksway as marked on attached plan.


Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) has fully supported the introduction of these restrictions to assist bus movement and to ensure passengers can board/alight directly onto the footway at the existing bus stops. The bus operator has also supported the request for restrictions to assist bus movements.


The Traffic Management Unit has been formally consulted on the proposals for introducing a ‘No Waiting at Any Time’ and ‘Monday to Saturday 8am to 8pm restriction’ Traffic Regulation Order on 5th August 2019. The proposal also includes two Bus Stop Clearways at the existing bus stops on Overdale; there were no objections received from emergency services or local councillors.


The TRO was legally advertised on 24th October 2019 for 21 days, during which time three objections were received, with an additional objection received after objection period. All four objections are included within this report. There were 3 representations supporting the proposals.


The matter was considered at a meeting of the Traffic Advisory Panel on the 19th December 2019. All objectors were invited to provide representation in respect of the proposed scheme.


Proposed amendment includes

·         Reduce length of Prohibition of waiting TRO from 33m to 23 metres.

·         Increase length of ‘No Waiting at Any Time’ TRO from 10m to 15 metres.

·         Install advisory parking bay road markings to assist parallel parking.

·         Advised TfGM to use smaller bus on this route.


All amendment made as per TAP discussion and designed new scheme as scheduled in the report; TfGM also minded to run smaller bus on this route from Feb 2020; however in case of increase in passengers, breakdown or unavailability of smaller bus TfGM may need to use large bus.


Bus Stop Clearways are proposed to keep clear of parked vehicle on existing bus stops to permit buses to draw up to the kerb; this arrangement will ensure passengers can board/alight directly onto the footway.


The Lead Member for Planning & Sustainable Development indicated that he would make a decision regarding the proposed scheme at a future Lead Member Briefing. Having considered the representations made at the TAP meeting he was minded to make a decision to approve an amended proposal.


Assessment of Risk:   


No Waiting at Any Time, Prohibition of Waiting and advisory parking bay will be marked out in accordance with the Traffic Signs Manual and Traffic Sign Regulations and General Directions.
