Better Bus Area Fund - Clarence Street Bus Improvement Scheme
Decision Maker: Decision Session - Executive Member for Transport, Executive Member for Transport and Planning
Decision status: For Determination
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: Yes
Purpose of Report: To
bring the Portfolio Holder up to date with developments on the
Clarence Street bus scheme and achieve agreement on a way forward
with delivering the scheme.
The Executive Member is asked to approve the technical recommendation to amend the scheme.
Resolved: (i) That the progress with the scheme be noted and the proposal to proceed with the revised, better value and less disruptive scheme be supported.
(ii)The scheme shall be amended so that the cycle feeder lane remains in place on Lord Mayor’s Walk and that a separately signalled left turn out of Clarence Street is not delivered at this stage but the operation of the junction is kept under review and a report brought back to enable a further decision to be taken if warranted by increased demand in the area.
Reason: To deliver a higher capacity junction whilst maintaining the existing cycle lane arrangements.
