Discussion planned over main road in Saltaire
A range of changes to parking, loading and waiting along a main road have been parcelled together for discussion for the first time by Shipley Area Committee next week.
It will consider a new report containing updates on the position of the Saltaire Roundabout Project and within that a combined approach to easing traffic flow on Saltaire’s main road.
Proposed regulation and movement orders begin with removing peak-time waiting restrictions outside Gordon Terrace.
The report says: “This will simplify the current limited parking arrangements, extending the periods for various businesses.”
Coun Ross-Shaw said that this was an issue which had been raised before, but was now being tackled as part of a raft of proposed changes.
Hirst Lane and Clarence Road would both receive No Waiting At Any Time restrictions based on surveys which say vehicles will still be able to park in the vicinity and business and residents’ permits will be considered.
And No Waiting and No Loading At Any Time restrictions are proposed for a section of Bingley Road between Moorhead Lane and Bromley Road to keep lanes clear in the approach to a new Toucan Crossing.
The site of an old bus stop in front of Gordon Terrace will become a limited waiting area of one hour with no return within an hour.
Movement will be most affected by three new No Right Turn signs.
Discussion of the roundabout scheme takes place when the Shipley Area Committee meets on Wednesday, January 23, at 6pm in Bingley Town Hall.
