We asked

We asked for your views on the potential implementation of Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) and associated signage and implementation of dropped kerbs with tactile paving; as part of a Road Safety around Schools scheme to support the Council’s overall strategic ambition to increase the number of children walking or cycling to school.

You said

A total of 16 responses were received with 69% of respondents supporting the proposals. 3 respondents disagreed with the proposals, all of whom commented on the proposed parking restrictions. Two respondents advised that on-street car parking is already competitive, whilst the third felt that the proposed restrictions don’t go far enough.

We did

The proposed scheme represents a reduction in the parking restrictions proposed when compared with a previous 2019 scheme and aims to balance improved safety with the parking requirements of local residents. The proposed scheme was approved at the Bramhall and Cheadle Hulme Soutth Area Committee on the 10th March 2022. The TROs are expected to be advertised in spring/summer 2022.

The Council’s overall strategic transport ambition is to increase the number of children walking or cycling to school, to reduce congestion on roads, improve local air quality, and improve health outcomes. In order for this to be achieved, it is important that walking or cycling to school is a safe option for children and their families.

To support this ambition, the Feasibility and Road Safety team have been working to tackle key concerns which have been raised by schools, residents and local Members. Site investigations have been undertaken to review the operation outside the school. To reduce the impact of inconsiderate parking and to highlight to passing vehicles there are children in the area, the following improvements have been identified surrounding Bradshaw Hall Primary School:

  • Introduction of ‘No Waiting At Any Time’ restrictions on Chedlee Drive at the junctions of Blossoms Hey and Hall Meadow;
  • Introduction of ‘No Waiting At Times Shown’ restrictions (08:00-09:30 and 15:00-16:00 Monday to Friday) on Blossoms Hey
  • Installation of dropped kerbs and tactile paving at the following locations:
    •  Vernon Close, Blossoms Hey, Chedlee Drive and Hall Meadow; and
  • Extension of the School Keep Clear markings.
