Specific Delegation:

(If any)

To promote, consider objections to and implement Traffic Regulation Orders under the Traffic Regulation Act 1984.


Brief Description of Decision:

The purpose of this report is to consider an unwithdrawn objection to a proposal to introduce 2no single speed cushions on Kilnhurst Road (outside Rawmarsh Sandhill Primary School), Rawmarsh. The key recommendation of the report is to not accede to the objection and continue with the proposed scheme to implement the proposed speed cushions.

Reasons for the Decision:

There is a risk that failure to implement the road humps may result in drivers not reducing their speed, to an appropriate level as they travel along this section of Kilnhurst Road, with the potential for a collision to increase. The proposed road hump scheme addresses this.

Details of alternative options considered and rejected:

One option considered was that Kilnhurst Road would be left in its present state i.e. without speed reduction measures, footway buildouts, or any waiting restrictions being introduced. However, due to the requirement to improve the road safety environment in this area, as part of the proposed residential development, then this option was not considered a viable option.

Another option was omitting the speed cushions from the proposed scheme. However, as the scheme includes the provision of a priority working system for drivers by using the footway buildouts to provide give ways, then this may result in drivers speeding up, as they approach the give way, in order to ‘beat’ the vehicle heading toward them. The provision of a speed cushion should therefore reduce this possibility.
