Abingdon: B4017 Bath Street - Proposed Waiting Restrictions pdf icon PDF 1 MB

Forward Plan Ref: 2018/184

Contact: Hugh Potter, Team Leader – Area Operations Hub Tel: 07766 998704

 

Report by Director for Infrastructure Operations (CMDE10).

 

The report presents responses received to a statutory consultation on a proposal to introduce waiting restrictions comprising double yellow lines - ‘no waiting at any time’ – on the B4017 Bath Street, Abingdon as part of the proposed provision of advisory cycle lanes. The proposed restriction would remove approximately 54 metres (8 car spaces) of parking that currently allows 2 hour waiting on Monday to Saturday between 8am and 6pm (parking at other times is unrestricted). The proposal has been put forward as part of plans to improve safety and amenity for cyclists along the B4017 Wootton Road/Bath Street and is seen as integral to the goal of encouraging cycle trips as an alternative to the use of private cars, including for residents of the new development, thereby serving to help reduce congestion in the town and encourage active and low-carbon travel.  If approved, the scheme would be funded by approved residential development in north Abingdon.

 

The Cabinet Member for the Environment is RECOMMENDED to approve the proposed double yellow lines (no waiting at any time) restrictions on the B4017 Bath Street, Abingdon as advertised.
