Traffic calming engagement
We are talking to residents of specific streets identified for traffic calming. It is likely that we will monitor a number of streets once the northern motorway opens but this work will allow us to act quickly if traffic issues arise.
We are proposing to trial of turning restrictions where Cranford Street meets McFaddens Road, Weston Road and Knowles Street. This would involve putting the turning restrictions in place on a temporary basis so that residents can consider the impact on them before giving feedback.
Consultation on the projects took place in July and August 2019 and more than 50 changes have been made in response to feedback.
The street meetings we had planned for March/April 2020 about future traffic calming options/ideas for your street have been postponed.
- Moving people, not cars
- Retaining a sense of community
- Safety, particularly for people walking, biking and accessing local schools
