Objections to proposals to replace priority narrowings in Little Stoke Lane with a series of full-width raised tables are to be considered at a Council meeting this week.
South Gloucestershire Council’s Planning, Transport & Strategic Environment (PTSE) Committee, meeting in Kingswood on Wednesday, will consider three objections to the Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) that was advertised between 20th November and 13th December last year, along with one letter of support and another that asks for formal crossing points to be introduced as part of the scheme.
The Council is proposing to install a series of six raised tables, five of which replace priority narrowings, with a sixth positioned close to Giffard House.
The scheme was drawn up after some local residents complained that the existing priority narrowings encourage aggressive driving. The Council also claims the raised tables will be “less onerous to buses”, which has allowed it to secure funding of £150k from the Local Sustainable Transport Fund.
An earlier public consultation on a package of proposed traffic calming measures in Little Stoke Lane was held from 30th July to 31st August 2012. Other aspects of the scheme include amendments to the school entrance markings for Little Stoke Primary School and the introduction of a 20mph zone covering Maple Close and a length of Little Stoke Lane either side of the Maple Close junction.
