Linear Park Liveable Neighbourhood
Please support our application to create a Linear Park Liveable Neighbourhood!
Fast moving and inappropriate traffic has become a significant safety hazard and a blight on our neighbourhood. The area has become a major traffic rat-run and a route for large HGVs which can often be seen trying to negotiate our narrow residential streets. In just the past three years, traffic has caused extensive damage, including:
- Major damage to a parked car belonging to the occupants on Ringwood Road caused by an HGV;
- The death of three cats belonging to residents of Millmead Road, Lyndhurst Road and Dartmouth Avenue due to fast moving traffic;
- Extensive collision damage to three parked vehicles on Lyndhurst Road;
- The destruction of part of a garden wall adjoining a property on the corner of Lyndhurst and Millmead Roads by an HGV negotiating the turn.
We are calling for: design measures to calm traffic and physically discourage unsuitable HGVs from using our streets. We envisage ‘raised table’ junctions and carriageway redesign rather than speed bumps. We also want to use this opportunity to enhance to our streets through landscaping and to provide better facilities for pedestrians, cyclists and electric vehicles. We believe these measures will strengthen our community and will help the environment and can be delivered without any reduction in parking. This application is an expression of interest included for funding under the B&NES Liveable Neighbourhoods initiative. If successful, detailed consultations and design work will follow.
The Linear Park Neighbourhood covers: Ringwood, Lyndhurst, Millmead and Bellotts Roads together with West and Dartmouth Avenues.
