Motion by Councillor Webber - Proposed Changes to Roads in Juniper Green

Motion by Councillor Webber - Proposed Changes to Roads in Juniper Green

 

“Committee

 

Notes Juniper Green & Baberton Mains Community Council (JGBMCC) is keen to act in response to their own observations and those of their community. 

 

Notes that JGBMCC have consulted widely and extensively with the local community both to gather ideas and on a proposed solution, initially raised by one of the local community police officers after observing the issues first-hand during a community speed watch initiative with Cllr Susan Webber

Agrees to: 

·       Introduce no entry (eastbound) to junction of Woodhall Terrace and Baberton Avenue for motorised vehicles.  This means continued access for cyclists

·       Runs 24/7, as opposed to being restricted to specific hour

Further agrees to look at the feasibility of widening the pavement to make crossing easier but it might be best to initially enforce this through a temporary barrier as this would enable faster implementation.

 

Accepts these changes will reduce ‘rat runners’ and improve the safety of local residents by reducing the risk of an accident, especially during rush hour.  This is also consistent with a number of Council and Government policies such as Safer Routes to School.

 

Notes, these proposed changes have the support of all local Councillors and calls for a report by the Director of Place be brought back in one cycle detailing the actions required to implement these proposals.”
