Cycle Route Improvements (Nunnery Lane-Nunthorpe Grove)
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: The existing cycle route between Nunnery Lane
and Nunthorpe Grove has been approved
as one of the diversion routes for the Environment Agency works in
Clementhorpe where the closure of Terry
Avenue is due to commence in May.
Council led safety improvements to this route, including a refuge area on Scarcroft Road, could improve safety for all users. Mindful of the imminent Environment Agency works this needs to be considered as soon as possible.
However initial contact with local residents has indicated concerns with the suggested temporary measures that have been identified.
Changes to existing TROs would need to be advertised prior to a decision being taken on whether to implement a scheme in the area.
The Executive Member will be asked to consider allocation of resources to improve the existing advisory Cycle Route between Nunnery Lane and Nunthorpe Grove and undertake further investigation and delegate the advertising of the legal orders as necessary with a further report to be brought back for a decision on whether to deliver or not.
It has not been possible to give 28 days’ notice of the intention to make this decision as imminent Environment Agency works in Clementhorpe relate and concerns relating to the temporary measures have been identified by residents which need to be addressed prior to commencement of works.
i. Approved further investigation of improvements to the existing advisory Cycle Route between Nunnery Lane and Nunthorpe Grove.
ii. Subject to the successful outcome of a Safety Audit to progress towards the delivery of route alignment changes which are indicatively shown on the drawing in Annex B. But to exclude amendments to parking and the improvement to the crossing on Scarcroft Road.
iii. Amendments to parking and the improvements to the crossing on Scarcroft Road to be considered as a future item to the Executive Member for Transport Decision Session.
Reason: In order to adequately understand the impacts of the scheme and mitigate concerns raised by the residents impacted by the proposals.
