Bishopthorpe Road: Proposed Traffic Calming and Pedestrian Improvements
This consultation runs from 19 December 2012 to 25 January 2013.
There are proposals to build out the footways of Bishopthorpe Road at its junction with Maskelyne Avenue to tighten up the junctions and make it easier for pedestrians to cross. It is also proposed to build a Zebra Crossing across Bishopthorpe Road, between its junctions with Bishop Manor Road and Butterfield Road. Further details of these proposals, together with a scheme proposals plan, as provided by the consultation leaflet (pdf, 1.0 MB) (opens new window).
Developing local policies for improving the quality and safety of our streets is a major function for the council. The Traffic Management Team is responsible for not only assessing local needs and priorities, but also consulting with local people and other interests on specific schemes and proposals. Their work includes the following:
- Local traffic management, such as traffic calming, one way streets and road closures.
- Development of cycle routes, both traffic-free and on-street.
- Pedestrian improvements, such as safer routes to schools and zebra / pedestrian crossings.
- Public rights of way.
- Local bus lanes and priority public transport routes.
- Traffic signals, including the maintenance and further development of the SCOOT system (which links traffic lights on the main radial roads and the city centre).
- Advice on highway issues for planning applications.
- Road safety, including maintenance of accident records, accident investigation, assessment of priorities.
- Access issues for pedestrians and disabled people.
