18 September 2020: Notice is hereby given that Portsmouth City Council proposes to install traffic calming measures in accordance with The Highways (Traffic Calming) Regulations 1999 and The Highways (Road Humps) Regulations 1999, as follows:
Installation of three sets of double speed cushions (1 set = 2 cushions/humps in a row) along Clive Road, near to the locations below:
a) Clive Road/Trafalgar Place junction
b) Clive Road/Ethel Road junction
c) Clive Road/Barnes Road junction
Council’s reasons for the order
To improve the layout of Clive Road and reduce the speed of traffic travelling through the area and around its junctions with Trafalgar Road, Ethel Road and Barnes Road, by implementing traffic calming measures, which can consist, for example, of speed cushions, speed humps/raised tables, or vehicle activated speed signs etc. We are potentially recommending speed cushions of 65mm – 75mm in height, approximately 1.6m – 1.8m in width, with a gap of at least 75cm between them.
Clive Road is subject to a 20mph speed limit, but unfortunately has a high level of historical and recent non-compliance. This is partly due to the road being long and straight with good visibility, enabling faster vehicle speeds. The proposed traffic calming features aim to improve road safety in the area, and increase active travel through improved pedestrian/cyclist confidence, which may also improve air quality.
Persons wishing to support or object to these proposals may do so by sending their representations via email to email@example.com and quoting Clive Road or in writing to Mr Phil Rennie, Safer Travel Team, Portsmouth City Council, Civic Offices, Guildhall Square, Portsmouth, PO1 2NE, again quoting Clive Road by 18 October 2020 – providing your name, address and stating the grounds of objection/support.
Under the provisions of the Local Government (Access to Information) Act 1985, any written representations which are received may be open to inspection by members of the public.
