Kingswood - Forest Road (Hanham Ward) New kerb build-out & informal pedestrian crossing facility

 

Background

Representations have been made to the Council, by local residents, to improve the pedestrian crossing facilities On Forest Road. 

Pedestrian crossing surveys were undertaken by the council to identify both numbers of people crossing and the location at which they cross the road.

There is funding available from the 2019/20 Environment and Community Services Capital Programme priorities for 2019/20 to 2022/23 which were approved by the Cabinet Member for Planning Transport and Strategic Environment in February 2019.

Purpose of the scheme

To improve the pedestrian crossing facilities on Forest Road, by providing a kerb build-out to both highlight the location of the crossing point to drivers and reduce the crossing distance for pedestrians.  . 

Proposed scheme

To introduce a kerb build-out on Forest Road to improve the crossing facilities for pedestrians, especially those going to / from school.  The kerb build-out will;

  • reduce traffic speeds
  • highlight the location of the crossing point for motorists
  • reduce the width of the carriageway for pedestrians to cross

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.
