Minutes:

Further to Minute No. 9 of its meeting held on Thursday 26th October 2023, the Cabinet Committee considered a report of the Executive Director (Environment and Place) concerning the petition requesting making Richmond Avenue a one-way traffic flow from Caulfield Road to St Andrews Road with a 20mph speed limit.

 

Having considered the views of the Traffic Regulations Working Party, it was:-

 

Resolved:-

 

1. That the petition and its contents be formally noted.

 

2.That a resident consultation be undertaken on whether to make Richmond Avenue a one-way street from Caulfield Road to St Andrews Road with a 20mph speed limit.

 

3. That, subject to the outcome of the residents’ consultation referred to above demonstrating support, the scheme be progressed in line with Council’s criteria for assessing road safety schemes.

 

Reasons for Decision

 

Evidence suggests that introducing 20mph speed limits are suitable where 85th percentile speeds are already at 24mph or less (85th percentile is the speed at or below which 85% of vehicles are travelling)

 

Speed data for Richmond Avenue (Outside School / opposite no.55) from June 2019 indicates the 85th percentile speed is 21mph, so is suitable for a 20mph speed limit, which is self-enforcing through signs and road markings only and not through the use of physical traffic calming measures.

 

Other Options

 

‘Do nothing’ approach to retain the existing arrangement.

 

Note: This is an Executive function

Not eligible for call-in as the matter has already been subject to pre-Cabinet scrutiny by the Traffic Regulations Working Party.
