Lyndhurst Avenue / Davyhulme Road, Urmston - Proposed No Waiting at Any Time Restrictions

Decision Maker: Corporate Director Place

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Purpose:

Problems caused by on-street parking at the Lyndhurst Avenue / Davyhulme Road junction have been the subject of complaints made by residents to the Council.

 

Parking at the junction obscures visibility for all road users using Lyndhurst Avenue / Davyhulme Road junction. It is considered that the junction would benefit from the introduction of junction protection and that its introduction will alleviate the obstructive and hazardous parking currently taking place.

Decision:

 

1.          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.

 

2.     That any objections maintained be reported back for consideration.

Reasons for the decision:

The Council has been contacted by residents concerned with parking at the junction of Lyndhurst Avenue and Davyhulme Road obscuring visibility for motorists entering / exiting the junction putting all road users in danger.

 

The proposal seeks to introduce a ‘No Waiting at Any Time’ restriction in the form of junction protection at the above location to deter the reported parking issues and to improve visibility for all road users.

Alternative options considered:

The alternative to do nothing would mean the safety issues at the junctions would remain.

Interests and Nature of Interests Declared:

None.
