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

Decision status: Decision Made

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Purpose of Report: To inform the Executive Member of the effectiveness of enhancements made to the scheme in October 2015, make recommendations on their retention, and consider possible future changes to the road layout in this area.

The Executive Member is asked to consider the recommendations as outlined in the report.


Resolved:  That the findings of the report be noted and the scheme be retained in its present form.


Reason:     Council Officers and the University consider that the existing layout is improving the safety of all road users, in particular university students crossing University Road, and encouraging greater use of the new cycle route. The suggestion to relocate the bus stop into the lay-by is not supported by bus operators or the University.
