CHARLTON & CRIBBS - One-way Working & Waiting Restrictions, Passage Road


Representations have been made to the Council, by local residents, to introduce one-way working on Passage Road to deter commuters from using the narrow residential lane as a cut through when traffic is delayed on the A4018.  There are existing plans to amend the southern junction between Passage Road and the A4018 (Wyck Beck Road), as part of a major development site, which would introduce one-way working on Passage Road.  The delivery of these proposals are, however, dependant upon the timescales associated with the construction of the residential development.

Residents have also made representations that motorists are parking in an inappropriate manner on Passage Road during the day. 

There is developer funding available, and Councillor support, to introduce the one-way working and waiting restrictions prior to the junction re-modelling work in order to alleviate residents' concerns.

Purpose of the scheme

To deter peak hour commuter traffic using Passage Road, whilst retaining cycle access.  To deter motorists from inappropriate parking behaviour, whilst allowing local residents the opportunity to park without restraint during the evening and at the weekend. Time limited waiting restrictions would deter all-day parking during the week. 

Proposed scheme

To introduce a north-bound only one-way system from the southern junction (Passage Road and A4018) up to (but not including) The Close.   The one-way scheme would incorporate a contra-flow cycle facility.  North of The Close the road would continue to operate two-way working. No changes would be made to Hazel Brook Gardens or The Close.

To install part-time waiting restrictions (single yellow lines), to deter inappropriate parking, operating Monday to Friday between;

  •  the hours of 10am and 11am along the western side of Passage Road and The Close
  • the hours of 2pm and 3pm, along the eastern side of Passage Road and Hazel Brook Gardens.

The proposed waiting restrictions have been selected to  deter non-residents from parking all-day, but allowing residents and their visitors the opportunity to park on-street.

  • Local highways and transportation projects
  • Transportation planning & policy
Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
Target Audience
  • All residents
