MOTION NO. 12

MOTION: Councillor L. O’Toole

“That the Chief Executive provides an updated report on the plans for the Hillcrest roundabout trial period including confirmation of schedule and reassurances that the measures are on a trial basis.”

REPORT:

As already explained to members this matter is currently being examined in the context of the overall traffic management of the Hillcrest, Esker and surrounding areas and also in the context of the NTA grant in 2015 for the Newcastle road area. As the detailed design is completed members will be informed. Any pilot or trial such as this proposal will be of a temporary nature pending evaluation. If it is of benefit it will be retained and if it has no benefit it will be removed. It is important that all avenues in relation to traffic management in the area are examined so that a fair traffic management scheme for all road users is put in place.
