OVERVIEW AND SCRUTINY COMMITTEE: Regeneration & Environment

ACTION: Strategic Director, Place

 

(Simon D’Vali – 01274 431000)

 

 

Minutes:

The report of the Strategic Director, Place (Document “V”) was presented to the Committee as two objections had been received in relation to a proposal for a zebra crossing facility on Manywells Brow, Cullingworth.

 

Manywells Brow linked the A629 Halifax Road to the B6144 Haworth Road/Cullingworth Road and the proposed crossing lies to the west of a newly constructed housing estate.  The proposed crossing formed part of the planning conditions for the development.

 

Members were provided with drawings to show the proposed siting and its position in relation to the aforementioned estate.

 

Officers reported that there had been no reported traffic collisions resulting in personal injury within 100 metres either side and that full consultation had taken place with Local Members, the emergency services and WYCA.

 

The two objections received from objector one related to the proposed position being on a blind corner and that motorists did not adhere to the 30mph speed limit. 

 

Officers had commented that Highways Officers considered the forward visibility to be good.  The proposed vehicle activated sign and signs warning drivers of the crossing were intended to warn drivers.  Officers had also carried out a speed and volumetric survey at the proposed location and, despite mean speeds of between 32.6 and 34.3mph, they were confident that the vehicle activated sign would be sufficient to warn drivers (the accident figures previously quoted formed part of the direct response to the objection).

 

The second objector raised the following points:

·         Motorists exceeded the 30mph speed limit

·         Two accidents had occurred recently

·         Requested a pelican crossing (as opposed to a zebra crossing)

·         Requested introduction of speed cameras

·         That the location was on a blind corner

·         The existing 30mph speed limit should be reduced to 20mph

 

In response to the points raised, officers referred to the vehicular speed and volumetric survey that had been carried out.  In relation to the two accidents, Council records showed no reported traffic accidents (as per objector one).  The Section 106 agreement relating to the nearby residential development specified the provision of a zebra crossing and there was insufficient funding for a pelican crossing.  The location did not meet the criteria for consideration of mobile or static safety cameras (as defined by the West Yorkshire Casualty Reduction Partnership), the response for the location had been previously addressed for objector one and Manywells Brow did not meet the criteria (as specified within the Department for Transport Circular 01/2013) for a 20mph limit to be applied.

 

Resolved –

 

(1)       That the proposed zebra crossing facility and associated            traffic signs (as shown within Drawing No. P/HS/THN/104413/GA-     1A (attached as Appendix 1 to Document “V”) be approved and          implemented as formally advertised.

 

(2)       That the objectors be advised accordingly
