Decision Maker: Decision Session - Executive Member for Transport, Executive Member for Transport

Decision status: Decision Made

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Purpose of Report: A decision is required to approve the proposed option for the refurbishment of Traffic Signals at the junction of Barbican Road and Paragon Street.

The Executive Member will be asked to approve the proposed design for Traffic Signal Refurbishment works at the junction of Barbican Road and Paragon Street.




                      i.         Approved the proposed design option presented in Annex A of the report.


Reason:     To achieve the core aim of replacing the life-expired traffic signal asset to established TSAR programme standards such that it can continue operate and be repaired economically before it becomes unmaintainable. Additionally, the formalisation of the existing uncontrolled crossing facility over Barbican Road and the introduction of a new crossing of Paragon Street provides a significant improvement to pedestrian and cyclist safety at the junction and will assist in reducing existing levels of pedestrian/cyclist conflict at the south western corner of the junction which have previously been highlighted as an issue.
