STOKE GIFFORD - Braydon Avenue - Proposed Raised Speed Table

Background

The Southern Brooks Area Forum has funded a scheme to remove the existing chicane priority narrowing and replace it with a raised speed table. The scheme is programmed for implementation during the 2014/2015 financial year.

 

Purpose of Scheme

The purpose of the scheme is to provide less conflict on the road between motor vehicles. The advantage of a raised speed table is they are one of the most effective traffic calming measures in reducing vehicle speeds. Motor vehicles are more likely to travel at slower speeds over a raised speed table.

The disadvantage of the current traffic calming measure (chicane priority narrowing) is that motor vehicles with priority are not required to reduce their speed and motor vehicles without priority are not required to reduce their speed if there is no oncoming vehicle approaching.

 

Details of scheme

The council proposes to remove the existing chicane priority narrowing and replace it with a raised speed table in the same location. As part of the scheme dropped kerbs and tactile paving will be installed to provide pedestrians with an improved informal crossing facility.

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.
