Current TROs

Elland Future High Street Fund Informal(TRO)

Elizabeth Street, Southgate, Coronation Street, Westgate and Town Hall Street, Elland

As part of the Future High Streets Funding (FHSF) provided by the government and earmarked for Elland it is proposed to carry out a number of alterations to the road layouts and waiting restrictions in the town centre. The FHSF scheme is part of the long-term plan for Elland town centre.

Currently, Elland is dominated by vehicles and has a poor public perception of road safety. The proposals under the FHSF aims to reconfigure the road layouts, reduce carriageway widths and introduce new and widened footways. These measures will improve the public perception of road safety, create welcoming gateways that are easily accessible on foot and by bike and improve circulation with Elland town centre.

The proposals will enable the pedestrianisation of the core of Southgate making it feel safer and look more attractive and so encourage new and increase footfall from the local community. Whilst some on street parking will be removed, access to Timber Street car park will be significantly improved and become much more attractive for use.

Whilst carrying out the necessary traffic regulation order relating to the above it is intended to carry out the following :-

Coronation Street, Elland – alteration to the waiting restrictions towards the southern end

As well as the alterations to Coronation Street as detailed above it is proposed to carry out some alterations to the waiting restrictions at the southern end of Coronation Street and on Boxhall Road.

Currently, a permit holders and limited waiting restriction is in place outside the residential properties of 16 -24 Coronation Street. The limited waiting aspect has, on occasions, prevented the residents from accessing their driveways; there are a number of KEEP CLEAR markings in place to prevent this. To prevent any confusion it is proposed to remove the existing parking restriction and provide a ‘no waiting at any time’ restriction. The remaining restrictions on the eastern side of Coronation Street from Boxhall Road to Victoria Road will remain and permit holders will still be able to park in the parking bays to the front of house numbers 1-15 Coronation Street.

Huddersfield Road, Elland town centre

To compensate for the loss of on street parking on Elizabeth Street it is proposed to provide a length on limited waiting on Huddersfield Road. To maximise the number of spaces it is also proposed to relocate the bus stop on Huddersfield Road.

Church Street, Elland

It is also proposed to provide additional limited waiting parking on Church Street.

Northgate, Elland

Due to the redevelopment of Elland town centre and in particular the proposed closure of Westgate, Northgate (and Church Street) will become an access and egress route to the shops and businesses on Westgate and those towards the north end of Southgate. As a result, it is proposed to extend the existing ‘no waiting at any times restrictions’ through the narrow part of Northgate, this will assist in the free flow of traffic on this route. It is also proposed to provide a loading area on Northgate for nearby businesses. This will rationalise the loading activities that take place currently on an informal basis.

Ash Green, Mixenden – Active Travel Scheme (TRO)

Calderdale Council are aiming to reduce traffic volumes & speeds and build a safe and healthy environment for people of all ages to walk, cycle, rest and play in the streets around Ash Green.

Proposals include making Sunny Bank Road and Ash Tree Road a one-way loop in the vicinity of Ash Green Community Primary school. Additionally, Ash Tree Gardens and Sunny Bank Road will effectively become ‘no through roads’ by the introduction of physical measures. This will greatly reduce through traffic along these roads. Parking spaces will be clearly marked to formalise on-street parking and also deter pavement parking. Raised crossings will be provided at key junctions and along the one-way route to help reduce traffic speeds and assist people walking and cycling.

For more about the scheme, visit: Calderdale The Next Chapter.

To achieve the objectives of the scheme as outlined above, requires the introduction of one-way roads and prohibition of motorised traffic restrictions. Both of these type of restriction require the making of a traffic regulation order (TRO), which is the legal process required to enable enforcement of the restrictions.

Experimental Road Changes – Wainstalls Road/Tree Lane

Wainstalls School ETRO 2023

We propose to make this Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) to promote a safer highway environment around Wainstalls School at the start and finish of the school day, particularly for pedestrians.

High traffic levels outside of the school:

  • presents a problem in terms of road safety;
  • creates significant congestion;
  • compromises air quality;
  • and obstructs access for residents and emergency services.

Reducing the time vehicles remain in the vicinity of school entrances at busy times will help to make children’s access to school safer.

Proposed Scheme

The proposed measures include turning the majority of Tree Lane into a full time "one-way" road (allowing travel only from east to west) to remove some traffic from the narrow road but also to reduce the number of drivers using the difficult right turn into Cold Edge Road (where there is very limited visibility). The "one way" restrictions will start just beyond the properties at each end of Tree Lane to ensure full accessibility for the residents. The one-way restriction, will encourage a one-way approach to the school area, reducing the current traffic conflicts.

In addition, we are proposing additional timed parking restrictions on Wainstalls Road (opposite the school) to reduce parking during busy school times (operating at 8.15am to 9.15am and 2.30pm to 4.00 (Mon – Fri)).

To reduce the necessity for parking around the school, school staff will be providing a "drop off" system outside of the school, where parents will be able to pull up and their child can be collected by a member of staff and escorted into the school. This will reduce the need for parking for many of the parents and remove a significant amount of the pressure on local parking. This arrangement has been communicated to parents by school staff.
Subject to confirmation of funding, it is proposed to have a second phase to add a speed table outside of the school entrance to provide a speed reducing feature and provide a focal point for crossing to the school.

This proposal is due to commence on 6TH November 2023 (the week after half-term).

The Legal Order

We consider an ETRO to be appropriate because the implications for the surrounding road network are uncertain at this time. As such, the impact of the experiment will be regularly reviewed, monitored and assessed whilst the experiment is in operation. The ETRO will allow us to react quickly if circumstances need the measures to be modified or even removed should that be required.

The ETRO will last for a maximum of 18 months. In the first six months, there will be a consultation period giving people the chance to give their views either in support or against the change. Such comments will be considered carefully and they may lead to the revisions to the scheme to achieve improved results and will help us to determine whether a permanent order should be made.

Experimental Road Closure – Christ Church (Pellon) C of E VC Primary School

School Streets Project - Sandbeds Road Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) 2023

We propose to make this ETRO to promote the 'School Streets' project. This aims to tackle the issues caused by school traffic at peak times (the start/end of the school day). Also, to create a better environment around schools.

High traffic levels outside schools:

  • creates congestion;
  • compromises air quality;
  • presents a problem in terms of road safety;
  • and also obstructs access for residents and the emergency services.

If we remove vehicles from roads near school entrances at busy times, it will:

  • help to make children’s journeys to school safer;
  • and make active travel to school (cycling and walking) more appealing.

Schools have been selected based on a range of criteria. This includes the schools' pro-active engagement with schemes aimed at improving their pupils' travel arrangements.

Proposed Scheme

This is to create a 'pedestrian and cycle' zone under an ETRO. This will stop vehicle access to the affected area during peak times.

Relevant signing and temporary barriers will be placed in the highways. This will be at the closure point to the zone, to make sure the scheme is achieved as intended.

Road closures will mainly be when the school opens and closes (8.15am to 9am and 2.45pm to 3.30pm). Access will still be made available for permitted residents and emergency vehicles.

  • Residents of the restricted roads will be asked to avoid entering and leaving during the closures. They will be able to apply for a free permit for use in unavoidable situations.
  • These permits are free. For more details or to apply, see: Parking permits.

This proposal is due to start on 14th September 2023.

The Legal Order

We consider an ETRO to be appropriate because the implications for the surrounding road network are uncertain. As such, the impact of the experiment will be regularly reviewed, monitored and assessed whilst the order is in operation. The ETRO will allow us to react more quickly if circumstances require the measures to be modified or removed.

The ETRO will last for a maximum of 18 months. In the first six months, there will be a consultation period. People will have the chance to give their views, either in support or against the change. Such comments will be considered very carefully. They may lead to the revisions to the scheme to achieve improved results and will help us to determine if a permanent order should be made.

A decision will be made by the Governing Body on whether to introduce the scheme on the road permanently. This will be made after the consultation period closes, but before the ETRO ends.

Experimental Road Closure - Mile Cross Terrace, Halifax

Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) 2023

We propose to make this ETRO to promote a safer residential environment.

Mile Cross terrace is a wide private residential road. It has increasingly been seen to be used as a 'rat run' and a place to drive badly.

Several complaints have been received from residents. These state that drivers' behaviour creates a risk to pedestrians and reduces the amenity of the area.

Proposed Scheme

The main aim is to improve road safety for pedestrians, cyclists and residents.

The proposed scheme is to restrict all through access to vehicles along Mile Cross Terrace. Cyclists and pedestrians will still have access. To do this, we will provide a point closure close to the centre. The road closure will be in place 24 hours per day and 7 days per week.

The proposed scheme is to create a road closure under an ETRO. Relevant signing and temporary barriers will be placed in the highways, specifically at the closure point. This is to make sure the scheme is achieved as intended.

The Legal Order

We consider an ETRO to be appropriate because the implications for the surrounding road network are uncertain. As such, the impact of the experiment will be regularly reviewed, monitored and assessed whilst the order is in operation. The ETRO will allow us to react more quickly if circumstances require the measures to be modified or removed.

Experimental Road Closure - Stafford Road, Halifax

Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) 2023

We propose to make this ETRO to promote a safer residential environment.

Stafford Road is a residential road that has increasingly been seen used as a "rat run" to avoid busier roads. Most of the road is two-way, but the extreme eastern end is one way only (from Huddersfield Road). There is currently a 'No Right Turn' in place on Huddersfield Road, preventing access from the southbound carriageway.

Several complaints have been received from residents. These mostly relate to poor compliance by drivers of the banned right turn from Huddersfield Road into Stafford Road. This creates a risk to pedestrians and increases through traffic. On occasions, drivers also ignore the one-way section of Stafford Road and using it as access onto Huddersfield Road.

Affected residents were consulted in March 2023 and there was support for the proposal (11 in support, 4 against)

Proposed Scheme

The main aim is to improve highway safety for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers. We propose to stop all vehicle access to Stafford Road from Huddersfield Road. Cyclists and pedestrians will still have access. To do this we will provide a point closure at the junction. The road closure will be in place 24 hours per day and 7 days per week.

The proposed scheme is to create a road closure under an ETRO. Relevant signing and temporary barriers will be placed in the highways, specifically at the closure point. This is to make sure the scheme is achieved as intended.

This proposal is due to start on 14th September 2023.

THE BOROUGH COUNCIL OF CALDERDALE (Speed Limit) (B6114 Saddleworth Road, Barkisland) Order 20**

Concern has been raised regarding the speed of vehicles approaching Barkisland village.

Currently B6114 Saddleworth Road on both the north and south approaches to Barkisland is subject to the national speed limit with a 30 mph speed limit on entry to the village.

Speed surveys on B6114 Saddleworth Road have shown the 85th percentile speed is in the region of 50 mph.

As a result, from the north it is proposed to reduce the speed limit to 50 mph, in line with the travelled speed, on the main part of Saddleworth Road. A 40 mph buffer zone will be provided on approach to the existing 30 mph speed limit, this length will include a cluster of outlying residential and agricultural properties. From the south it is proposed to reduce the existing national speed limit to 40 mph to provide a buffer zone on the approach to the village.

THE BOROUGH COUNCIL OF CALDERDALE (Waiting and Loading and Parking Places) (Sowerby Bridge) (Consolidation) Order 2008 (Variation No. *) Order 20**

Concern has been raised regarding inconsiderate parking taking place at the junctions of Saddleworth Road with Stainland Road and Scammonden Road with Saddleworth Road in Barkisland. The parking restricts sight lines and impedes access and egress at the junctions. As a result, it is proposed to implement waiting restrictions at the junctions, which will remove the parking, improving sight lines and access and egress.

THE BOROUGH COUNCIL OF CALDERDALE (Waiting and Loading and Parking Places) (Brighouse) (Consolidation) Order 2008 (Variation No. *) Order 20**

Traffic Regulation Order

Planning permission has been granted for a new convenience store on Wyke Old Lane, Bailiff Bridge. A condition of the planning approval was the introduction of parking restrictions to prevent obstructive park in front of and around the new store entrance.As a result of this condition Calderdale Council have drafted proposals to introduce lengths of 'no waiting and no loading at any time' restrictions outside the proposed new store on Wyke Old Lane, Bradford Road and Axminster Drive.

This is intended to prevent vehicles from parking on Wyke Old Lane to either deliver to the store or visit it and impeding traffic flow on that road. The restriction will also maintain sight lines for vehicles leaving the store car park and for the Branxholme business centre opposite the new store.

It is also proposed to introduce a length of 'no waiting and no loading at any time' restriction on A641 Bradford Road. This will maintain sight lines for vehicles that are displaced to park in these areas, as a result of the introduction of the restrictions on Wyke Old Lane.

Similarly, it is also proposed to introduce a length of 'no waiting and no loading at any time' restriction on Axminster Drive. This will maintain sight lines for vehicles that are displaced to park in this area.

Prohibition of Motor Vehicles, Mayroyd Lane (Crow Nest Bridge), Hebden Bridge

In 2021 a structural survey was carried out on Crow Nest Bridge, Hebden Bridge and it was deemed not safe to carry motor vehicles. As a result, a temporary prohibition was put in place preventing vehicles from using the bridge by way of an Temporary Traffic Regulation Order. The temporary Order expired in May 2022.

Remedial works to strengthen the bridge are unlikely to be realistically carried out in the near future. As such, it is proposed to make the closure permanent by way of a Traffic Regulation Order. An alternative route to properties to the south of the bridge can be made via Hebble End, Shelf Road and Palace House Road. Access across the bridge will still be available for pedestrian, cyclists, wheelchair users and horse riders.

THE BOROUGH COUNCIL OF CALDERDALE (WAITING AND LOADING AND PARKING PLACES) (HEBDEN BRIDGE) (CONSOLIDATION) ORDER 2008 (VARIATION NO. *) ORDER 20**

Following an inspection of a retaining wall on Lee Wood Road in Heptonstall it was deemed that waiting restrictions were required to prevent parking adjacent to it to avert compromising the stability of it and to protect the safety of the users of the road.

Initially, the waiting restrictions were provided under an Emergency Temporary Traffic Regulation Order and then subsequently by way of a Temporary Traffic Regulation Order.

It is anticipated that remedial repairs to the wall will not be carried out in the foreseeable future, so it is proposed to make the restrictions permanent by means of a Traffic Regulation Order.

The Council considers it expedient to make the Order: -

  • for avoiding danger to persons or other traffic using the roads or any other roads or for preventing the likelihood of any such danger arising.

Proposed Waiting Restrictions A6036 Bradford Road and Towngate Northowram

The Council proposes to make the above Order, which will introduce a length of 'no waiting and no loading at any time' restriction outside the new local store on A6036 Bradford Road. This will prevent vehicles from parking on Bradford Road to either deliver to the store or visit it. The restriction will also maintain sight lines for vehicles leaving the car park and for the business centre next door.

It is also proposed to introduce lengths of 'no waiting at any time' restrictions on Bradford Road at its junctions with Queens Mead and Oaklands Avenue. Those restrictions will also extend into Oaklands Avenue from that junction. These will maintain sight lines for vehicles that are displaced to park in these areas.

Finally, it is proposed to extend the existing 'no waiting at any time and no loading Monday to Friday 8.15 – 9.15 am and 2.30 – 4pm' on Towngate. This will improve the forward visibility of vehicles negotiating a bend on Towngate and improve the free flow of traffic.

Documents giving more detailed particulars of the Order, including plans showing the affected roads and the statement of reasons for the proposals, are available for inspection at Halifax Central Library, Halifax, HX1 1QG, from 10am to 5.30 pm on Mondays to Fridays and 10am to 4pm on Saturdays. Alternatively copies of the documents can be viewed on the Council's website at https://new.calderdale.gov.uk/streets-and-transport/transport-initiatives/tro/current-tros#tro15501 or can be made available on request via email proposedtro@calderdale.gov.uk or phone 01422 288001 or 288002.

If you wish to object to or make a representation to any part of the proposed Order, you must send the grounds for your objection or support in writing to reach the Council by not later than 12th January 2023 to either proposedtro@calderdale.gov.uk or to Highways and Transportation, C/O the Town Hall. Crossley Street, Halifax, HX1 1UJ for the attention of the Highways Traffic Team. All objections must specify the grounds on which they are made.

Update

Following formal consultation, objections were received to the proposals. As some of the objections were related to the installation of loading restrictions, a public inquiry is required to consider these objections against the merits of the proposals. Formal notice of the public inquiry along with a pre inquiry note can be found in the documents below. These documents explain the procedure and timescales for making representations.

Proposed, School Keep Clear marking, Park Road, Sowerby Bridge

Concern has been expressed by Christ Church school that motorists are parking on the existing 8am - 6pm restriction opposite the school. This parking makes it dangerous for pedestrians, particularly school children, crossing Park Road.

As a result, it is proposed to replace the existing no waiting 8am – 6pm restriction with a SCHOOL KEEP CLEAR marking to operate Monday – Friday 8am – 5pm. It is felt that a SCHOOL KEEP CLEAR will be more respected than the current restriction and deter parking. The proposed marking will extend from its junction with Clifton Street to its junction with Exeter Street.

It is also proposed to extend the existing SCHOOL KEEP CLEAR outside the school to tie in with the length of the new marking; this will create a length of Park Road that is free from parked vehicles enabling pedestrians to cross with good sight lines.

Experimental Proposals – Cornholme Junior, Infant and Nursery School

School Streets Project - (Cornholme Junior, Infant and Nursery School) (Greenfield Terrace and Other Streets) Experimental Traffic Regulation Order 2022

The Borough Council of Calderdale proposes to make The Borough Council of Calderdale (Cornholme Junior, Infant and Nursery School) (Greenfield Terrace and Other Streets) Experimental Traffic Regulation Order 2022 to improve road safety around the school.

High traffic levels outside of schools creates congestion, compromises air quality, presents a problem in terms of road safety, as well as obstructing access for pedestrians, residents, buses and the emergency services. Removing vehicular traffic from roads in the vicinity of school entrances helps to make journeys to school safer and will make active travel to school (cycling and walking) more appealing.

The primary aim of the scheme is to make an improvement to road safety from the perspective of pedestrians and cyclists – thus helping to promote a shift to more sustainable and active modes of transport. Schools have been selected based on a range of criteria, including the schools’ pro-active engagement with schemes aimed at improving their pupils’ travel arrangements

Proposed Scheme

Following reported concerns due to traffic volume, road safety and the effect on school bus access, we have been monitoring traffic levels and pupil movement on the roads outside of the School.

Following discussion with the school and local members we are now looking to introduce the following proposals. They are split into three elements (see plan below for further information): -

School Street

School Streets involve closing the road outside of a school to cars and other motorised traffic at school drop-off and pick-up times only, with the aim of transforming streets into temporary pedestrian and cycle zones. The feedback from the schools and residents where existing schemes are in place, is that School Streets have positively improved safety, reduced traffic, improved air quality and generally made streets outside schools a more enjoyable place to be.

The closure will be in place for the whole length of Carrfield Villas and the northern section of Greenfield Terrace (after the junction with Lennox Road). This aims to tackle the issues caused by excess school traffic at peak times (the start/end of the school day). The closures will only be in place, during the school opening and closing times – 8.30am to 9.10am and 3.10pm to 3.40pm (Mon – Fri).

The road closure would be staffed by the school using road closed signage, barriers and cones at the junction of Greenfield Terrace. Access will still be made available for permitted residents and emergency vehicles. Whilst residents of the restricted roads will be asked to avoid entering and leaving during the closures, they will be able to apply for a permit for use in unavoidable situations. These permits are free and can be applied for from the parking permits page.

One Way Street

To improve traffic flow (including access for the school bus) the whole length of Carrfield Terrace will be changed from the current two way road, to a one way route (flowing from west to east). Note that this will be active permanently, it does not change throughout the day.

Parking Restrictions

To improve visibility for pedestrians at junctions and improve access for the bus, “No Waiting and No Loading at any time” restrictions will be included at some junctions. Please note that these will be in place at all times.

The Legal Order

The proposed scheme is to be supported by an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO). The ETRO will last for a maximum of 18 months. During the first six months of the experiment, there will be an opportunity for people to contribute their views and anyone who is opposed to the restrictions continuing on a permanent basis to submit an objection. Such representations will be considered carefully – they may lead to the revisions to the scheme in order to achieve improved results – and will help to determine if a permanent order should be made, either modified or in like terms to the relevant ETRO.

The Council considers an experimental order to be appropriate because the implications of the scheme for the surrounding road network are uncertain. As such, the impact of the experiment will be regularly reviewed, monitored and assessed whilst the order is in operation; the ETRO will allow the Council to react more quickly if circumstances require the measures to be modified or removed.

The ETRO and the proposals will come into place on 17 October 2022 (you might see signing and road markings being introduced in the days before).

Details of where supporting documents can be found

Full details of the proposals can be found in the supporting documents below. These documents are also available for inspection at the Halifax Central Library, Halifax, HX1 1QG (please see Central Library location and opening times). Alternatively copies of the documents are available on request via proposedtro@calderdale.gov.uk or phone 01422 288001 or 288002.

Haworth Old Road, Hebden Bridge - Experimental Permit Holders Only Parking Scheme

THE BOROUGH COUNCIL OF CALDERDALE (HAWORTH OLD ROAD, HEBDEN BRIDGE)

EXPERIMENTAL TRAFFIC REGULATION ORDER 2022

Particularly during the summer months there have been frequent concerns raised by residents of Haworth Old Road regarding regular significant obstructive parking due to inappropriately parked vehicles belonging to visitors to ‘Lumb Falls’ which restricts vehicular access along this road.

This inappropriate parking creates congestion, compromises air quality, presents a problem in terms of road safety, as well as obstructing access for residents and the emergency services. Removing parking from the road will help to make the area safer.

Proposed Scheme

In order to resolve these issues, it is proposed to create a residents permit parking zone under an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) then at the end of the ETRO period a decision will then be made on whether to introduce the scheme permanently. Relevant signing will be placed at the start and end points to make sure it is clear what the restrictions are along this road.

The proposed restrictions allow only permit holders to park on any part of this road, with exemptions for emergency services, delivery vehicles, refuge vehicles, maintenance vehicles etc. Agricultural vehicles going about their regular business will also be exempt.

The Council considers an experimental order to be appropriate because the implications for the surrounding road network are uncertain and it will enable officers to assess if this is the correct restriction for the area and identify any alterations which may be required. As such, the impact of the experiment will be regularly reviewed, monitored and assessed whilst the order is in operation; the ETRO will allow the Council to react more quickly if circumstances require the measures to be modified or removed.

The ETRO will last for a maximum of 18 months. During the first six months of the experiment, there will be an opportunity for people to contribute their views and anyone who is opposed to the restrictions continuing on a permanent basis to submit an objection. Such representations will be considered carefully – they may lead to the revisions to the scheme in order to achieve improved results – and will help to determine if a permanent order should be made or the experimental order either modified or abandoned.

Experimental Order – Shibden Hall Road, Halifax - Parking Restrictions

Experimental Parking Restrictions - (Shibden Hall Road, Hebden Bridge) Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) 2022

We propose to make this ETRO to improve safety on the road.

Particularly in the summer months there have been frequent concerns regarding significant safety issues because of inappropriately parked vehicles belonging to visitors to Shibden Hall, despite the road being marked by double white lines where stopping is already prohibited and enforceable by the police.

This inappropriate parking presents a problem in terms of road safety, creates congestion and as it delays progress it can also compromise air quality. Adding double yellow lines will provide another enforcement remedy, this one exercisable by the Council, which may assist in breaking the pattern of problem parking and help to make the area safer.

Please note: Erroneously the order refers to Hebden Bridge, this is a typographical error in the documents as the relevant road is indeed in Halifax, this detail will be corrected in the future.

Proposed Scheme

The proposed scheme is to introduce “No Waiting at Any Time” and "No Loading at Any Time" restrictions under an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) and at the end of the ETRO period a decision will then be made on whether to introduce the scheme permanently. Relevant lining will be introduced over the affected area to make sure the aim is achieved as intended.

The Council considers an experimental order to be appropriate because the implications for the surrounding road network are uncertain and it will enable officers to assess if this is the correct restriction for the area and identify any alterations which may be required. As such, the impact of the experiment will be regularly reviewed, monitored and assessed whilst the order is in operation; the ETRO will allow the Council to react more quickly if circumstances require the measures to be modified or removed.

Experimental Road Closure – Savile Park Primary School

School Streets Project - (Savile Park Primary School) (Moorfield Street) Experimental Traffic Regulation Order 2022

The Borough Council of Calderdale proposes to make The Borough Council of Calderdale (Savile Park Primary School) (Moorfield Street) Experimental Traffic Regulation Order 2022 to improve safety around the school.

High traffic levels outside of schools creates congestion, compromises air quality, presents a problem in terms of road safety, as well as obstructing access for pedestrians, residents and the emergency services. Removing vehicular traffic from roads in the vicinity of school entrances will help to make journeys to school safer and will make active travel to school (cycling and walking) more appealing.

The primary aim of the scheme is to make an improvement to road safety from the perspective of pedestrians and cyclists – thus helping to promote a shift to more sustainable and active modes of transport. Schools have been selected based on a range of criteria, including the schools’ pro-active engagement with schemes aimed at improving their pupils’ travel arrangements

Proposed Scheme

The proposal is split into two elements (see plan below for further information): -

All day point closure

A point closure (operating all day, every day) will be located on Moorfield Street, just south of the junction with Eldroth Road. This will prevent through traffic at all times and divert vehicles to other more suitable routes.

To provide space for potential turning manoeuvres required by the closure “No Waiting and No Loading at any time” restrictions will be included at some junctions. These will be in place at all times.

Time limited “No Waiting and No Loading” restrictions will also be added to some of the southern side of Eldroth Road to prevent parking there and give pedestrians more freedom to use the footway.

“School Street” restrictions

A “School Streets” closure will be in place for the length of Moorfield Street from Eldroth Road to Savile Park. This aims to tackle the issues caused by excess school traffic at peak times (the start/end of the school day), but also create additional social distancing space in the closed highway outside of schools during any COVID 19 outbreaks should it be required (notwithstanding the relaxation of restrictions). The closures will only be in place, during the school opening and closing times - 8.30am to 9.10am and 2.30pm to 4pm (Mon – Fri).

Access will still be made available for permitted residents and emergency vehicles. Whilst residents of the restricted roads will be asked to avoid entering and leaving during the closures, residents will be able to apply for a permit for use in unavoidable situations. These permits are free and can be applied for from the parking permits page.

The Legal Order

The proposed scheme is to create a point closure and also a ‘pedestrian and cycle’ zone under an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) and at the end of the ETRO period a decision will then be made on whether to introduce the scheme (or parts of the scheme) on the respective roads permanently. Relevant signing and barriers will be placed in the highways, specifically at the closure point to the zones, to ensure that the scheme is achieved as intended.

The Council considers an experimental order to be appropriate because the implications for the surrounding road network are uncertain. As such, the impact of the experiment will be regularly reviewed, monitored and assessed whilst the order is in operation; the ETRO will allow the Council to react more quickly if circumstances require the measures to be modified or removed.

The ETRO will last for a maximum of 18 months. During the first six months of the experiment, there will be an opportunity for people to contribute their views and anyone who is opposed to the restrictions continuing on a permanent basis to submit an objection. Such representations will be considered carefully – they may lead to the revisions to the scheme in order to achieve improved results – and will help to determine if a permanent order should be made, either modified or in like terms to the relevant ETRO.

We proposes to make this ETRO to promote the “School Streets” project. This aims to tackle the issues caused by school traffic at peak times (the start/end of the school day).

High traffic levels outside of schools creates congestion, compromises air quality, presents a problem in terms of road safety, as well as obstructing access for residents and the emergency services.

  • Monday to Thursday from 8.20am to 9.05am and 2.40pm to 3.25pm.
  • Friday from 8.20am to 9.05am and 12.45pm to 1.20pm.

Access will still be made available for permitted residents and emergency vehicles. Whilst residents of the restricted roads will be asked to avoid entering and leaving during the closures, residents will be able to apply for a permit for use in unavoidable situations.

Proposed Scheme

This would create a ‘pedestrian and cycle’ zone under an ETRO. At the end of the ETRO, a decision will be made on whether to bring in the scheme on the respective roads permanently. Relevant signing and temporary barriers will be placed in the highways, specifically at the closure point to the zones, to ensure that the scheme is achieved as intended.

The Council considers an experimental order to be appropriate because the implications for the surrounding road network are uncertain. As such, the impact of the experiment will be regularly reviewed, monitored and assessed whilst the order is in operation; the ETRO will allow the Council to react more quickly if circumstances require the measures to be modified or removed.

The ETRO will last for a maximum of 18 months. During the first six months of the experiment, there will be an opportunity for people to contribute their views and anyone who is opposed to the restrictions continuing on a permanent basis to submit an objection. Such representations will be considered carefully – they may lead to the revisions to the scheme in order to achieve improved results – and will help to determine if permanent orders should be made, either modified or in like terms to the ETRO.

CIP (Todmorden) Proposed TROs and 20mph Speed Limit

Calderdale Council are proposing a package of improvement measures on the A646/A6033 corridors to improve traffic flows, reduce congestion, reduce accidents and stimulate economic growth.

The measures proposed aim to prioritise pedestrians and cyclists whilst supporting local regeneration objectives.

To facilitate these improvements in Todmorden, a number of changes are required to existing traffic regulation orders and the extension of an existing 20mph speed limit order on Halifax Road.

As part of the proposals access to Bridge Street, Brook Street, Calder Street and part length of School Street and Water Street will be restricted to loading/unloading only.

Proposed 50mph speed limit A672 Oldham Road, Rishworth

A review of the speed limit on the A672 Oldham Road, Rishworth between Booth Wood and Calderdale’s boundary with Oldham has been carried out.

This stretch of Oldham Road is currently unrestricted, however there is some ambiguity regarding the speed limit on the section around junction 22 of the M62, as there is a length that has street lighting, which could be confusing and lead motorists to interpret the speed limit in different ways. The remainder of this length of the A672 is unlit.

Although primarily rural in character, there are a number of properties, public footpaths and several lay-bys along this length of Oldham Road, as well as junctions bus stops and several minor access points, not forgetting the entry/exit slip roads for the M62.

Historically there have been regular occurrences of collisions on this road, many attributable to loss of control due to poor driving, along with difficult (foggy/wet) weather conditions, though previous schemes to improve signing and lining have helped to a degree.

Existing vehicle speeds have been obtained by placing monitoring equipment on two sections of the existing unrestricted length of Oldham Road over a period of one week from 17th – 25th May 2021. The data from these surveys has been analysed and is summarised in the table below. The data is based on readings recorded from Monday – Sunday, 7am-7pm. The 85%ile figure is an industry standard measure of speed.

Site 85th%ILE Speed Mean speed of all vehicles
Near Booth Wood Reservoir 53.2 mph 45.8 mph
Approach to J22 58.2 mph 49.4 mph

Considering the above information, it is proposed to reduce the speed limit along this length of the A672 Oldham Road to 50mph, this will compliment a similar 50mph scheme that was introduced by Oldham Borough Council in 2003, which extends from the Calderdale boundary near junction 22 for a distance of 2.5km towards Denshaw

How to object

If you wish to object to or make a representation to any part of the proposed order, you must send the grounds for your objection or support in writing to either proposedtro@calderdale.gov.uk or to Highways and Transportation, C/O the Town Hall. Crossley Street, Halifax, HX1 1UJ for the attention of the Highways Traffic Team. All objections must specify the grounds on which they are made.

Objection closing date

  • 23rd September 2021.

What happens next

Following formal consultation all representations and comments received will be considered by the Case Manager. A report containing their recommendations will then be presented to the Governing Body for final consideration.

Update

One objection was received to the proposals. The objector believes that the plan was misleading as it states the length of the existing speed limit on the lit section is unrestricted and they believe it to be 30mph, which is one of the reasons that this speed limit is being progressed. The objector also considers that the speed readings were carried out in the wrong locations (Not within the lit section)

The Governing Body considered the objection and requested further information be gathered, this is detailed below.

Further speed surveys were undertaken in the area around the M62 overbridge, between the on/off junctions (lit section). Readings could not be obtained in free flow traffic conditions due to the location of the junctions around the M62, therefore the results are likely to be slightly lower than in free flow conditions, but they remain indicative of speeds through the area. The speeds recorded were:

Site 85th%ILE Speed Mean speed of all vehicles
Near M62 J22 Northbound 49.9 mph 42.5 mph
Near M62 J22 Southbound 47.3 mph 39.5 mph

In considering the context of setting the appropriate speed limit, the length of road concerned is rural. Section 7 of circular 01/2013 (setting local speed limits) recommends that in rural areas where mean speeds are recorded at <50mph, a speed limit of 50mph is suitable (note that this matches with Oldham Council’s view of the road beyond). A higher speed limit of 60 mph can also be applied to strategic A roads with few junctions/accesses such as this, however, the concentration of junctions on Oldham Road at J22 of the M62 along with a number of isolated properties, public footpaths, several lay-bys as well as other junctions, bus stops and several minor access points, suggests that a 50mph speed limit would be the most appropriate on this length of Oldham Road.

In rural settings, guidance only recommends the use of 30mph speed limits in villages, which clearly isn’t the case here as there are very few properties whatsoever along this length of road and none whatsoever in the lit section. Therefore, the additional data obtained confirms that the 50mph speed limit initially proposed is the most appropriate for this length of road.

The governing body considered the new information and unanimously agreed that for clarity, the proposal should be re-advertised at the originally proposed speed limit of 50mph, with an amended plan.

The proposal plan has therefore been revised to reflect the comments regarding the ambiguity of the existing speed limit and the proposals will be re-advertised so that the public may consider the proposed speed limit in this context of uncertainty and that the proposed Order may result in an increase or decrease to what they may anticipate the present limit to be and make representations accordingly. Regardless of that ambiguity, officers are satisfied that the proposed speed limit of 50mph is the appropriate one for this section of Oldham Road.

THE BOROUGH COUNCIL OF CALDERDALE, (WAITING AND LOADING AND PARKING PLACES) (Brighouse) (Consolidation) Order 2008 (VARIATION NO. 1) Order 2021

And

THE BOROUGH COUNCIL OF CALDERDALE (Traffic Regulation) (George Street, Brighouse) (NO. 1) Order 2021

As part of the planning application to develop the land bounded by Bramston Street, Thornhill Road and George Street it is proposed to introduce a one way system on George Street and waiting restrictions on Thomas Street, Bryan Street, George Street, Bramston Street and Scotty Croft Lane.

The proposed one way system will prevent vehicles from turning out of George Street onto Thornhill Road where the sight lines are substandard.

The waiting restrictions will protect turning manoeuvres and improve sight lines on George Street, Bryan Street and Thomas Street. They will also prevent displacement parking from occurring near to the junction of George Street and Bryan Street.

The waiting restrictions on Bramston Street will enable servicing and deliveries to take place at the new development.

Proposed Waiting Restrictions - Hays Lane, Mixenden

The BCC (Waiting Loading and Parking Places) (Halifax) (Consolidation) Order 2015 (Variation No.1) Order 2024

The Borough Council of Calderdale proposes to make the above Order to comply with conditions attached to the planning approval for a new residential development off Hays Lane on the old Hebble Brook Business Park site. A highways safety scheme at the Hays Lane/Mill Lane junction is proposed, which includes the narrowing of the carriageway at the junction along with other works to improve road safety.

To complement the above works it is proposed to provide 'No Waiting At Any time' restrictions at the Hays Lane/Mill Lane junction to keep it clear of parked vehicles, which currently reduce visibility at the junction and make it difficult for vehicles entering/exiting Hays Lane. The proposed narrowing of Hays Lane increases the necessity for the double yellow lines. Double yellow lines are also proposed around the Seed Hill Terrace/Mill Lane junction to keep this clear of parked vehicles
