Overview

We are looking to introduce a number of new road safety measures that will reduce the speed of vehicles and also aim to address concerns raised via various petitions and requests by residents in Torrington Park and the surrounding area.

We have carried out a feasibility study for this area (including collisions, speed, traffic, origin-destination and pedestrian surveys, site investigations, review of junction layouts). Based on the results of the study, proposals were presented and discussed with ward councillors and it was agreed to proceed with the proposal that involves the least disturbance for residents.

We are proposing to introduce the following key traffic safety improvement proposals:

  1. A new 20mph zone in the area covering the roads listed in the document below:
    1. List of proposed 20mph roads
  2. Introduction of speed cushions on various local roads with the aim to reduce vehicle speeds.
  3. Introduction of raised speed tables, build outs and carriageway narrowing in places to reduce vehicle speed
  4. Uncontrolled crossing points at side roads to provide a safer crossing point for pedestrians
  5. Introduction of horizontal deflections, carriageway narrowing and surface colour/texture treatment on Torrington Park to reduce vehicle speeds and is suitable for a bus route
  6. Introduction of double yellow lines (no waiting at any time) on localised sections of the roads. This aims to reduce parking obstruction and improve visibility especially for vulnerable road users.
