The proposals include various speed reducing measures in the form of road humps and making the road narrower at certain key points. As pedestrian links to and from Troopers Hill Local Nature Reserve are poor, with no footway adjacent to the established accesses, they are proposing the introduction of short lengths of footway at these locations.
Consultation closed 1st November 2015.
Following this first consultation there will be a review (& revision if necessary) of the scheme and then a further formal consultation prior to the introduction of the necessary ‘Traffic Regulation Order (TRO)’.
Funding for this scheme is from the Local Sustainable Transport Fund and was awarded in September 2012 following an application by members of the Traffic & Transport sub-group in July 2012.
Beaufort Road one-way scheme
Following discussions at te Neighbourhood Partnership Meeting in June it has been agreed that the proposed one-way scheme for Beaufort Road will not be introduced until work on Troopers Hill Road is completed. This is likely to be late 2016.
