Purpose of Report: This report is in response to a petition received requesting demarcation of the bridge section within the Crichton Avenue cycle improvement scheme and to report the completion of the scheme. The final snagging measures plus trialling of the demarcation should have been implemented prior to this meeting but a verbal update will confirm this at the meeting. The Executive Member is asked to: Note the successful completion of the Crichton Avenue scheme and to report residents concerns raised in the petition delivered by the local ward councillor have been met through a trial as agreed with the Department for Transport.


RESOLVED:             That the Executive Member for City Strategy agrees to:


i)Note the contents of the report and road safety audit comments.


ii)                  Note that this trial is a new, largely unproven approach that should be considered experimental until the trial is concluded.


iii) Instruct Officers to action and monitor the trial for a 6 month period.


REASON:                  To complete the Crichton Avenue Cycle Scheme by informally delineating, as a trial, the use of space for walking and cycling over the railway bridge and respond to concerns raised by residents and the Ward Councillor for Clifton through their petition.
