Oldland - Wraxall Road / Cadbury Heath Road - Pedestrian Safety Improvements

Background

Concerns have been raised by local residents and Oldland Parish Council about the difficulty of crossing Wraxall Road.

Currently white road markings are used to highlight the most suitable place for pedestrians to cross the carriageway at the signals, although there are dropped kerbs there are no tactile paving slabs or push button units to allow pedestrians to cross the carriageway safely. Visibility around the junction is limited due to the presence of a private house and stone wall.

Pedestrian safety is of concern because Cadbury Heath Primary School and Parkwall Primary School are located near the junction. Barrs Court Primary School is also located within half a mile. The junction is small and is on a bus route, at peak times groups of pedestrians attempt to cross when large vehicles area negotiating the junction.

Purpose of the Scheme

    To improve pedestrian safety by upgrading the existing traffic signals to incorporate crossing facilities for vulnerable road users.
Remove a pinch point caused by guard railing outside of no. 100 Cadbury Heath Road.

Proposed Scheme 

Increase the width of the existing footway at the junction of Wraxall Road.
Upgrade existing traffic signals to allow for a pedestrian phase.
Provide tactile paving at the 3 pedestrian crossing locations.

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.
