Decision to make and seal Traffic Orders Ref
P34 & M5 and implement the restriction in Appendix 1 that are
required to complete sections of the Transforming Cities Fund route
“Merley, Poole to/from Christchurch” from Northbourne
Roundabout to Broadway Roundabout
To make and seal the Traffic Orders and implement the restrictions which are outlined in Appendix 1 of this report.
The decision will enable the implementation of traffic restrictions that are required to complete sections of the Transforming Cities Fund route “Merley, Poole to/from Christchurch” from Northbourne Roundabout to Broadway Roundabout.
All feedback following the advertisement of the Traffic Orders has been taken into account, and it is considered that the benefits of making the decision are clear as the traffic restrictions will complete a highway improvement scheme that is designed to promote active/sustainable travel and minimise congestion.
In taking this decision regard has been had to the council’s duty under section 122 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.
No significant negative impacts have been identified in relation to the restrictions to be implemented including to matters such as access to premises, amenities and the use of the roads by public service vehicles.
It is considered that the Traffic Order proposals will help secure the expeditious, convenient and safe movement of vehicular and other traffic (including pedestrians) and the provision of suitable and adequate parking facilities on the highway.
