The Council has been contacted by residents to address issues of road safety and obstructive parking on Hilrose Avenue, Bradfield Road and Estonfield Drive, Urmston. The issue is particularly prevalent at school opening and closing times, owing to parked vehicles associated with St Anthony’s Roman Catholic School obscuring visibility for motorists.
It is therefore proposed to introduce additional ‘No Waiting At Any Time’ restrictions around Bradfield Road junction with Hilrose Avenue and Bradfield Road junction with Estonfield Drive, to help improve pedestrian access, visibility and road safety for all road users. The proposals, as shown on drawing E9206-001 were formally advertised on 16 November 2022 and received 6 objections. Having considered the objections received, approval is sought to introduce the restrictions as advertised, in accordance with drawing E9206-001.
1) That the results of the consultation and objections received be noted.
2) That following careful consideration of the objections and comments received, authorisation be given to make and implement the Order, as advertised and detailed in the schedule contained within the report, and as shown on drawing number E9206-001.
3) That the objectors be informed of the decision made.
To introduce a series of waiting restrictions to manage congestion to improve traffic flow and ensure that vehicles are parked in a safe manner without causing any restrictions to larger vehicles.
This set of proposals takes into account the comments received to maintain the safety and access objectives of the proposal. The option to do nothing is not recommended as this would mean there would be no management of the parking to address safety and to allow improved pedestrian access and visibility for all road users.
