Askew Ward REMINDER – URGENT – Have YOUR say on Askew Ward Traffic Proposals NOW!

REMINDER – URGENT
YOU HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE YOUR VIEWS AND COMMENTS KNOWN TO THE COUNCIL ABOUT THEIR TRAFFIC PROPOSALS FOR THE ASKEW WARD
BY 20th SEPTEMBER 2019.

You should now be aware of the documentation for the Askew Ward traffic consultation that has been placed on the LBHF website recently. Indeed some of you may have received a letter from the Council about this by now.

The proposals are shown below but can be found at:
https://lbhf.citizenspace.com/tts/cathnor-park-area-traffic-management-proposals/

There are only two options given by the Council so please give your opinion along with any additional comments that you wish.

Please let the council know your thoughts AS SOON AS POSSIBLE either through the link on the website or by email direct to alan.eastwood@lbhf.gov.uk or by letter.

This is your ONLY chance to comment or object prior to changes being made and roads signage and priorities being altered. If you feel strongly or disagree with these options then speak NOW.

For your information the CPAAG was consulted early on in the process by the council and gave an opinion after committee discussions in February 2019. We have not been made aware of any other residents groups in the area having been consulted about this.

Neither of the Options reflect the discussions of the CPAAG meetings held although the ‘no right turn out of Greenside Road onto Goldhawk Road does appear on Option 1.

The CPAAG made the following suggestions for changes to the traffic as follows:

A – GOLDHAWK & GREENSIDE JUNCTION

“No Right Turn” for Southbound traffic from Greenside (see Red) onto Goldhawk.
Westbound traffic on Goldhawk remains able to turn into Greenside (see Yellow).
Road markings to be improved to show “Right Turn Zone” into Greenside from Goldhawk.

B – UXBRIDGE & PERCY JUNCTION
Install “Proposed Temporary Refuge Island” in middle of Uxbridge.
Eastbound traffic on Uxbridge unable to turn right into Percy.
Northbound traffic on Percy unable to turn right onto Uxbridge.
A Committee member stated that the “issue of Percy Rd being a through route is only a problem at a.m. & p.m. rush hours or match days …. but still an issue that is getting worse”.

C – UXBRIDGE & BOSCOMBE JUNCTION
Install “Proposed Temporary Refuge Island” in middle of Uxbridge.
Eastbound traffic on Uxbridge unable to turn right into Boscombe.
Northbound traffic on Boscombe unable to turn right onto Uxbridge.

D – CONNINGHAM
Apart from any additional possibilities of traffic calming it was thought best to leave the road alone.
The issue of southbound traffic on Conningham turning onto Goldhawk was discussed and there was a consensus:
To allow Eastbound traffic on Goldhawk to turn right into Conningham.
To allow Southbound traffic on Conningham to be able to turn right onto Goldhawk.
It was thought that the traffic lights and the pedestrians crossing area by ‘Nisbets’ generate sufficient breaks in the traffic to allow for these manoevres.

E – CATHNOR ROAD
To remain unchanged:.
Eastbound traffic on Goldhawk unable to turn right into Cathnor.
Southbound traffic on Cathnor to be able to turn right onto Goldhawk due to current refuge in the road (part of pedestrian crossing).
