Road Safety Audit for A6MARR Disley Mitigation (Cycle Lanes)

We're waiting for A. Sheridan to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council,

In late 2017 a “mitigation” scheme including “cycle lanes” was completed on the A6 Buxton Road West northwest of Disley, Cheshire East financed by funds from the A6MARR (A555) road building scheme.

Though this involves a highway managed by Cheshire East, that authority have advised that it is Stockport MBC who hold the following information to be requested, perhaps as Stockport were the lead authority on the A6MARR project.

I am writing to request you provide full copies of the final Road Safety Audit undertaken for the final design of this Disley Mitigation scheme, specifically the addition of cycle lanes, which includes:

- Dashed advisory cycle markings, intermittent
- No reduction to 40mph speed limit
- No removal of central traffic bollard islands, forcing narrowing of carriageway

Given the changes above, a Road Safety Audit should have been completed to ensure the new road layout does not pose an increased danger to any road users. Please provide this in full along with any supporting documentation relating to the final design decisions undertaken.

Yours faithfully,

A. Sheridan

FOI Officer, Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council

FOI Officer, Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council

Dear Mr/Ms Sheridan,

 

I am writing in response to your request for information (ref EIR 5546525
).

 

The relevant Council Service(s) has searched for the requested information
and our response is as follows.

                                  

In late 2017 a “mitigation” scheme including “cycle lanes” was completed
on the A6 Buxton Road West northwest of Disley, Cheshire East financed by
funds from the A6MARR (A555) road building scheme.

 

Though this involves a highway managed by Cheshire East, that authority
have advised that it is Stockport MBC who hold the following information
to be requested, perhaps as Stockport were the lead authority on the
A6MARR project.

 

I am writing to request you provide full copies of the final Road Safety
Audit undertaken for the final design of this Disley Mitigation scheme,
specifically the addition of cycle lanes, which includes:

 

- Dashed advisory cycle markings, intermittent

- No reduction to 40mph speed limit

- No removal of central traffic bollard islands, forcing narrowing of
carriageway

 

Given the changes above, a Road Safety Audit should have been completed to
ensure the new road layout does not pose an increased danger to any road
users. Please provide this in full along with any supporting documentation
relating to the final design decisions undertaken.

 

The A6MARR Complimentary and Mitigation Measures (CMM) were developed and
implemented by each of the Boroughs.  Stockport did not do any work on
development of Complimentary and Mitigation Measures in Cheshire East.

Stockport MBC do not hold any information in this regard.

Please contact Cheshire East Council who should be able to give out
accurate information on what was proposed / implemented by Cheshire East
Council.

 

 

If you are unhappy with the way we have handled your request for
information, you are entitled to ask for an internal review; however you
must do so within 40 working days of the date of this response. Any
internal review will be carried out by a senior member of staff who was
not involved with your original request. To ask for an internal review,
contact [1][email address] in the first instance.

                          

If you are unhappy with the outcome of any internal review, you are
