Isherwood Road, Carrington is currently subject to a 40mph speed limit for its entirety. Planning permission 94670/RES/18 has been granted for a new housing development on Isherwood Road, Carrington, south of the A6144 Manchester Road. The S278 Agreement includes the installation of new street lighting along a section of Isherwood Road.
To promote a safe environment for all road users it is proposed that the speed limit on Isherwood Road, in the vicinity of the development, will be reduced from 40mph to 30mph, by virtue of the street lighting and repeater signs. It is also proposed to introduce ‘No Waiting at Any Time restrictions’ alongside the development and around its junction with Inglenook Close, Cypress Gardens and Porta Road.
1. That approval be given to revoke the 40mph speed limit Order on the entire length of Isherwood Road as detailed within the report.
2. That authorisation be given to advertise the intention to introduce a 30mph Speed Limit Order on the length of Isherwood Road, as detailed within the report and that, if no objections are maintained, the Order be made and implemented in whole or in part, as soon as is practicable.
3. That authorisation be given to advertise the intention to introduce the Traffic Regulation Order, as detailed in the Schedule to the report and that, if no objections are maintained, the Order be made and implemented in whole or in part, as soon as is practicable.
4. That any objections maintained be reported back for consideration.
Revocation of the existing 40mph speed limit on Isherwood Road is recommended for road safety and by virtue of the new street lighting columns. That section of Isherwood Road with new street lighting would then revert to 30mph being the speed limit for a restricted road with a system of street lighting. The remaining unlit section of Isherwood Road shall become 30mph and 30mph repeater signs will be erected along the roadside as required by the Traffic Sign Regulations and General Directions.
Also, the Traffic Regulation Order is proposed in the interest of congestion and accessibility and to ensure that adequate visibility is available at the junction.
