Temporary traffic control measures at Malleson Road Junction from Monday 23rd November 2020 and to continue until 5th February 2021.
See link below for further details:
The proposed safety scheme consists of changes to the channel lines at the Malleson Road junction bellmouth, revised road markings and signage and the introduction of additional sections of footway, a pedestrian refuge on the A435 and tactile paving around the junction.
The General Arrangement plan can be seen in Drawing RED061-S278-100 in Appendix A.
It is currently anticipated that the safety scheme will be completed within 4 months of the date of this note. The road space has now been booked from the 23rd November 2020 and it is estimated that the works will take no more than 12 weeks to complete.
In the five years (2012 – 2016) leading up to the submission of the planning application in 2016, there had been six personal injury accident at or on the approaches to the junction, including two collisions which resulted in fatalities, and four collisions which resulted in slight injury.
One of the fatal accidents occurred on the 14th September 2012 in a collision between a motor vehicle and a motorbike resulting in the death of the rider, and the second occurred on the 24th March involving a collision between a motor vehicle and a pedestrian.
In the last five years for which records are available (2015-2019) the accident records show seven personal injury accidents including four collisions resulting in serious injury and three which resulted in slight injury.
