LONDON BOROUGH OF LAMBETH
PROPOSED CHANGES TO ONE-WAY SYSTEMS VARIOUS ROADS, THE PROVISION OF A ROAD HUMP (“SPEED TABLE”) IN ORSETT STREET AND CHANGES TO THE EXISTING ROAD HUMP
(“SPEED TABLE”) IN CORNWALL ROAD
(Note: This notice is about a proposal to exempt pedal cyclists from the one-way systems in Aveline Street, Brangton Road, Frazier Street, Glasshouse Walk, Juxon Street, Newburn Street, Orsett Street and Wynyard Terrace and to construct the type of flat top road hump known as a “speed table” in Orsett Street and the extension of the existing “speed table” in Cornwall Road. Objections or other representations may be made - see paragraph 7.)
1. NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Council of the London Borough of Lambeth propose to make the Lambeth (Prescribed Routes) (No. -) Traffic Order 2010, under sections 6 and 124 of and Part IV of Schedule 9 to the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.
2. The general nature and effect of the Order would be to exempt pedal cycles from the existing one-way systems in Aveline Street, Brangton Road, Frazier Street, Glasshouse Walk, Juxon Street, Newburn Street, Orsett Street and Wynyard Terrace and allow them to proceed contra flow to the one-ways. This would be achieved by banning motor vehicles from proceeding in those roads in a certain direction (instead of the existing ban on all vehicles) and providing advisory cycle lanes at certain points on those roads.
3. FURTHER NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Council of the London Borough of Lambeth propose, under sections 90A and 90C of the Highways Act 1980, to:-
(a) construct the type of flat-top road hump known as a "speed table" in Orsett Street at its junction with
Newburn Street. The "speed table" would be an elevated section of carriageway with a flat top, 75
millimetres higher at its highest point than the surrounding carriageway and extending across the full
width of the carriageway from kerb to kerb and having a length of approximately 5.30 metres, including
(b) extend the length of the existing “speed table” in Cornwall Road by a further 5.2 metres in a direction
towards Brad Street.
4. The proposed Order is to facilitate cyclists by allowing them to proceed contra to the one-way systems and so avoid the need to take lengthier and hazardous alternative routes. The proposed road humps are intended to reduce traffic speeds and thereby improve road safety for all road users.
5. If you have any enquiries, please telephone Lambeth Council's Transport and Highways Group on 0207 926 1240.
6. Documents giving more detailed particulars of the proposed Order and road humps are available for inspection between 9.30 am and 4.30 pm on Mondays to Fridays inclusive (except on Bank Holidays), until the last day of a period of six weeks beginning with the date on which the Order is made or, as the case may be, the Council decides not to make the Order, at: the offices of Lambeth Borough Council's Transport and Highways Group, 3rd Floor, Blue Star House, 234-244 Stockwell Road, London SW9 9SP. To arrange a viewing please contact 020 7926 9000 and select the Transport and Highways option.
7. All objections and other representations relating to the proposed Order or to the road humps must be made in writing and all objections must specify the grounds on which they are made and should be sent to Barbara Poulter, Transport and Highways Group, London Borough of Lambeth, 3rd Floor, Blue Star House, 234-244 Stockwell Road, London SW9 9SP, by 6th September 2010.
