Burdyke Avenue Improvement Scheme - Follow Up
Decision Maker: Corporate Director of Economy and Place
Decision status: Awaiting Implementation
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: No
Director asked at the time of the previous
decision whether it was possible to make the layby longer. Officers
have made further utilities investigations and discovered that
there is a large electric cable which crosses the verge/footway
immediately to the east of where the proposed layby finishes. It
isn't possible to extend the layby west, as doing this would
conflict with traffic turning in and out of St Philip's Grove. As a
result of these factors, the engineers have concluded that it is
not possible to provide a longer layby without incurring an
unacceptable cost increase. Director noted the feedback. Director
agreed to go ahead with the scheme as it is shown in Annex C of the
attached report, given that it is not possible to have a longer
layby. Director also agreed to commence implementation now,
specifically advertising the TRO and contacting the utilities
companies to arrange service redirection.
A - To proceed as outlined in Annex C.
B - Do nothing.
Option B was rejected.
