Greater Manchester's Clean Air Plan - Tackling Nitrogen Dioxide Exceedances at the Roadside - Signs Required for a Clean Air Zone

Decision Maker: Corporate Director Place

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


That TfGM seek authorisation from the Secretary of State to use traffic signs not detailed in the Traffic Signs Manual, that are required to be placed on the highway network to support the implementation of the Greater Manchester Clean Air Zone.

Reasons for the decision:

To help ensure that the authority complies with the Directions served by the Government in 2017, 2019 and 2020, requiring the authority to deliver compliance with legal limits for nitrogen dioxide in the “shortest possible time”.

Alternative options considered:

Not to agree the proposed arrangements. However this would impact on Trafford’s full compliance with Government Directions and lead to inconsistency with the other GM authorities.
