Issue Summary

Danger to pedestrians Durrington

 

Latest Update

27/06/2018 11:04:49 Update from CATG f) 5899 Bulford Road jcn Recreation Road, Durrington Stop junction. There have recently been two accidents at the junction of Bulford road and Recreation Rd in Durrington. Also accidents at same junction Windsor Road side. These accidents were serious with real danger to pedestrians and drivers. This junction does not meet the visibility restrictions that allow a “Stop” junction Topo has been received – design can progress if made a top 5 priority. Potential scheme would be in the region of £15k-20k and would need a road closure at each arm to facilitate the work. Prelim design work has indicated that the installation of build out islands on each arm of the roundabout has potential to work but the tracking movements of larger vehicles did show that it would be a tight maneover and may end up causing issues with near side verge overrun. I have done some preliminary costings for a project of this nature and the ball park figure is in the region of £35,000. Whilst on site it was noted that the signing on each approach is obscured by vegegation and the placement of the warning sign on Downbarn Road could be relocated and another added on the approach from Winterbourne village, it might also be possible to amend the chevron board at the roundabout to make a bigger impact. All of which might give extra advance warning of the roundabout ahead. A ball park figure would be in the region of £5,000 - £7,000.to be introduced and there is good visibility of pedestrians Check with Local Highways and Streetscene regarding refreshment of road markings at this junction. KD crossing at the junction. No collisions involving personal injury recorded on the Police database for the previous 6 years. GW clarified that the issue is vehicles entering Bulford Road from Recreation Road not realising that it is such a busy road. The double yellow lines and give way markings are very worn and there is no give way sign. After further investigation it has become apparent that the give way signs on both approaches to this junction should be externally illuminated in accordance with the regulations. On this basis an estimate to rectify the existing sign and install an additional sign on Recreation Road as well as refresh the road markings at this location will be in the region of £3,000. Order works for new give way signage and associated lighting.

This will now be made a top 5 priority
