About the project
Following a review of injury collisions across the county, the A412 Black Park Road junction has been identified as a priority for safety improvements. Between 2008 and 2016 there have been 18 reported injury collisions in the immediate vicinity of the A412 and Black Park Road junction. 13 of these collisions involved turning movements at the junction.
A statutory consultation has been carried out between 21st August 2017 to 29th September 2017, which received a total of 73 responses with 34 supporting the original proposals and 39 objecting to the original proposals. It was agreed that an improved design was required to take into account some of the valid points raised and to address concerns to assist in reducing collisions within the available budget.
Through a design review, the revised proposals are:
- Ban the right turn out of Black Park Road (as previously consulted).
- Ban the ‘U’ turn on the A412 for southbound traffic (as previously consulted). Note the U-turn facility on Black Park Road is maintained.
- Reduce the northbound speed limit on A412 to 50MPH, which includes reducing the northbound lane to a single lane through Black Park Road junction.
These will be implemented by Traffic Regulation Orders, a revised kerbing and island layout and new carriageway road markings.
A link to the proposed revised layout can be found below.
