Newington trial width restrictions
Please sign in to vote.
some of the roads in the Newington area have a higher than expected volume of lorries and other large vehicles using them as a cut-through from the major roads. This makes the local roads less safe and more unpleasant for residents and other road users.
council is proposing to install trial width restrictions in the form of traffic islands that narrow the road to 198cm (6ft 6in) - to prevent large vehicles from using the route at several points in the area.
no detailed drawings -- width restrictions on Harper Road had cycle bypasses -- important that these do too. Width restrictions on Harper Road repeatedly vandalised -- continual monitoring and replacement needs to be factored in.
