Cathnor Park Area Traffic Management Proposals

Closed 20 Sep 2019

Opened 26 Jul 2019

Overview

Share your views on how we can make improvements to your area: 

We are proposing to make some changes to the road network in your area in order to reduce through traffic, improve road safety, air quality and to make your neighbourhood a more pleasant place to live. We would like to know what your views are on these proposed changes or any other suggestions.

 

Why are the changes being proposed? 

We are aware that some residential streets in your area become very congested, mainly caused by traffic travelling through the area. We have carried out traffic surveys which show that there is significant southwest bound movement from Westway to Goldhawk Road travelling through the Wormholt park Area and then to the Cathnor Park Area.

 

Our proposals: 

We have spoken with a number of residents and by listening to their views, we have developed two proposals aimed at reducing the number of vehicles driving through these residential streets.

 

Proposal 1: We would like to introduce: 

  • No Entry at Sawley Road from Bloemfontein Road (except cyclists)
  • No Entry into Percy Road from Batson Street (except cyclists) 
  • Proposed Entry-treatment at Coningham Road junction with Uxbridge Road
  • Road humps in place of the speed cushions in Coningham Road 
  • A refuge island on a raised table with removal of 4 parking bays in Coningham Road 
  • Banned Right turn from Greenside Road into Goldhawk Road 
  • Banned Right turn from Goldhawk Road into Greenside Road

Why We Are Consulting

The purpose of this consultation is to determine which proposal we should implement and trial by using an experimental traffic order which would enable us to monitor the effects the changes would have for approximately six months. We would then ask you for your views again, to see if you think the changes have made a difference and if we need to make any changes, before making a final decision whether to make these changes permanent.

The above proposals are a phased approach to improve your area in a way that enables us to implement small schemes and analyse their impact during the trial period allowing us to progress with further changes and complementary measures.
 
The council believe this incremental/phased method is more balanced and financially more sustainable, which allows local residents to have an open dialogue and contribution to the improvement of their area
