Issue details

Cycle Route Improvements (Nunnery Lane-Nunthorpe Grove)

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.
