Reason:    To provide a refresh of the traffic calming on this section of road to address residents’ concerns over the increasing speed and volume of vehicles, with appropriate amendments to ensure the scheme is as safe as possible.

Minutes:

Officers outlined the current issues with existing traffic calming measures on Burton Stone Lane, including deteriorating speed cushions and measures which send cars closer to kerbs making the street less safe for cyclists and pedestrians. The Executive Member noted the options outlined in the report, as well as concerns from emergency services and buses. He agreed to support option 3 in the report and requested that regardless of final design, that monitoring, and cleaning regimes be in place to maintain safe cycle lanes.
