Dear Russ Marsden-Sear,

Our Ref: FOI/1846

On 18/12/2020 you made the following request for information, which has
been dealt with in accordance with the provisions of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000].

Freedom of Information request - Risk Assessment and Safety Report - zebra
crossing on Felpham Road, Bognor Regis

We have now completed a search for the information which you requested and
confirm that this Authority holds data relevant to your request.

The Response to your request is as follows:

 

 

 

* Risk assessments for use of zebra crossings.

There is no requirement to undertake a risk assessment for positioning a
zebra crossing on the public highway. 

The key documents relating to the safe implementation and use of a zebra
crossing are the Road Safety Audits (RSA).   These are an independent
review of the safety of significant road projects and are carried out at
different stages of a project.   The independent auditor makes comments
and recommendations, which are then considered in a Response Report with
comments by the designer and the client for the works.   Where the client
is WSCC, this is then also reviewed by both the lead officer for Safety
Audit and a senior manager.

A copy of the RSA Stage 2 (end of detailed design) audit and response
report is attached.   A RSA3 (post construction) audit has been undertaken
and WSCC are waiting for the findings to be issued along with the
designers’ comments. 

There are no other safety reports on the use of the zebra crossing.

Level of lighting

Apart from the comments in the RSA and response report on street lighting
there are no other documents relating to street lighting.   WSCC have
requested further information from the designers on lighting levels.   If
it is found that the lighting levels are substandard then additional work
will be carried out to improve this.

Financial Reports

The work here included removal of the traffic island, installation of the
zebra crossing, reworking of the bus stops and associated resurfacing of
the footways and road carriageway, road markings and traffic signs.   This
is expected to cost in the order of £86,000.   This comprises
approximately: -

£43,000  main civil engineering works

£10,000 real time passenger information signs for the bus stops

£33,000 fees and costs including design, safety audit and consultation

 

Proposed maintenance and future works

There are currently no planned maintenance schemes on a forward plan of
footway or road surfacing schemes.   The area will receive the normal
inspections and routine maintenance operations (eg street lighting, drain
clearing and grass cutting).

 

Public consultations

Attached is an internal report by WSCC Communication Team on the process
and impact of consultation on highway proposals in Felpham.   This report
(WSCC Communications Team report on Felpham) focussed on a drop-in session
on 10 October 2016 – in which 150 attended, approximately 5000 postcards
were distributed to households and posters placed in the media and in the
village.   Responses were made verbally, on pre-printed forms and
on-line.   The report comments mainly on the spread of communication and
take up by different media outlets.

 

Attached is a copy of the summary for the WSCC ‘you asked – we did’ pages
of the website and summary response.   This includes reference to the
request for a zebra crossing.   This is the origin of the proposed
solution.

 

Attached is an email from Hilary Flynn (County Councillor), responding to
comments from Felpham Parish Council, which shows that there is support to
go forward to formal consultation.

 

Formal consultation for the proposals took place from 19 September to 10
October 2019.   Attached is a copy of the formal notice of the TRO and
proposals, for which comments and objections from everybody are formally
requested.   Copies of the notice were erected on site and posted through
doors of those in the immediate vicinity and on the WSCC web site.   The
key stakeholders (including the local representatives the County
Councillor and Felpham Parish Council) Sussex Police and bus company were
also invited to comment.   At the end of the process there were no
unresolved objections, so no further reports or permissions were required
prior to implementation.
