Decision:

Resolved

 

                   i.        To defer a decision to allow for further modelling of post Covid traffic levels and how traffic could be diverted from the area. To also consider the prioritisation of public transport and the Local Transport Plan.

 

Reason:    To allow for further modelling before a decision is made.

Minutes:

It was confirmed that the TSAR programs primarily focused on the replacement of expired assets. This current scheme is sixth on the list of junctions needing replacement. Officers noted that a project in the Local Transport Plan would be unlikely this year and therefore recommended the replacement with ducts to allow for the potential of a larger junction change at a future date. The Executive Member noted his concerns that option A did not improve use of the junction for pedestrians or cyclists. With the results from the online survey both suggesting respondents wished for more space for pedestrians and cyclists but did not support option B. Therefore it was requested that further modelling of post Covid travel be undertaken before a decision and further consideration meet air quality targets.
