Statement of reasons
Irwell Avenue and Trafford Road are subject to 20mph speed limit. Irlam Avenue is a ‘no through’ road with mostly terraced properties, without off-street parking facility. Vehicles are parking close to the junction compromising visibility.
Waste Services have reported regular problems accessing the road to service bins. Whilst restricting parking on the full length of the road is considered as excessive, a junction protection measures should be taken forward. The proposed ‘No Waiting at Any Time’ restrictions at junction Irlam Avenue – Trafford Road will improve visibility for pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles as well as enable bin wagon to obtain the necessary swing when attempt to reverse into the avenue.
The restrictions would discourage any inconsiderate parking taking place compromising visibility and creating access issues for service and emergency vehicles.
The new restrictions will improve visibility both for pedestrians and drivers at all times and maintain safe traffic flow. The access to the avenue will be also improved at all times.
Further details of the proposals are set out in the accompanying information and plan.
