WICKWAR Village Traffic Management Scheme

Background

Section 106 funding has been made available for improvements in Wickwar village. A scheme has been designed to address issues raised in the past by the local Councillor, the Parish Council and residents. The scheme comprises several elements including:

Zebra crossing north of Amberley Way.

Extended 20mph zone through the High Street/Station Road, between Inglestone Road and Chase Lane.

Series of speed tables on High Street/Station Road, between Inglestone Road and Chase Lane.

Pedestrian refuge on High Street in vicinity of the Youth Club.

Waiting restrictions on High Street between Inglestone Road and Back Lane.

Junction improvements at High Street/Back Lane, and High Street/Buthay Lane, to improve visibility.

Footway build-outs at Station Road/The Downs/High Street, to provide safer crossings for pedestrians.

Purpose of the scheme

The scheme is designed to:

  1. Reduce vehicle speeds through the village.
  2. Provide safe crossing points where footways end, meaning pedestrians are required to cross the road.
  3. Restrict parking on the bend in the vicinity of the Youth Club.
  4. Restrict parking at the junctions of High Street/Back lane and High Street/Buthay Lane, to improve visibility for drivers exiting the side roads.
  5. Slow traffic on southbound approach to Station Road/The Chase junction, to aid drivers exiting the side road.

Consultation Topic
  • Local highways and transportation projects
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.
