Issue Summary

CATG Westbury to Bratton

 

Latest Update

21/03/2018 13:24:55 Westbury Town Council would support a flyout spot and would like to recommend a weight limit of 7 tonne along Bratton Road, B3098 (from Warminster Road, A350) to the Cemetery, Bratton Road, B3098. This will now be discussed at CATG


13/03/2018 13:16:31 Thank you for raising your issue with the Area Board. The Council has set up a way for local people to decide local highway improvement priorities. A local community area transport group (CATG) of local people and elected councillors comes together to consider issues and proposals and to recommend those schemes that can be taken forward in any year. Before the CATG can consider a proposal, it must first consult the local parish or town council. Only if the parish supports the issue will it be considered further. If your issue is supported by the parish council, it will be submitted to the CATG for consideration. The CATG will then decide whether it should go forward onto the list of priority schemes. Resources are very limited, so it is important that schemes are prioritised in this way. Obviously, not all schemes can be taken forward and some proposals may have to wait a while before they become a priority for funding. The CATG makes recommendations to the Area Board who will decide which schemes will be funded and taken forward. We will keep you informed of progress as we go through the steps outlined.


CATG Action / Recommendation

Issue

This is gateway route into Westbury from Bratton that is busy and too narrow in places. This includes the carriageway and the pedestrian footway. Because of this pedestrians walking through the narrows are often put under pressure because they feel that they are too close to road vehicles especially larger vans lorries and they think they are travelling faster than they might be.

Who is Affected

Residents pedestrians road users including cyclists.

What has been done so far

Brought this issue to CATG previously consulted residents and local highways officer.

What would resolve issue

Although it is a gateway I would like to discourage vehicular use reduce speeds the perception of speed and improve the perception of pedestrian safety. We might do this by constructing flyout spot not bumps along the road.

Who needs to come together

This might need to be a substantive scheme bid involving a partnership between Wiltshire Council, CATG and Westbury Town Council.
