Roadworks in Cheadle Hulme

Additional documents:

Minutes:

(NOTE: The Chair was of the opinion that this item, although not included on the agenda for the meeting, should be considered as a matter of urgency in accordance with Section 100B(4)(b) of the Local Government Act 1972 as the planned roadworks in Cheadle Hulme had  either started or were about to start).

 

A representative of the Democratic Services Manager reported that this item had been placed on the agenda at the request of Councillor Paul Porgess.

 

Councillor Porgess reported on the planned roadworks in Cheadle Hulme and in particular on Ladybridge Road and Cheadle Road. The scheme on Ladybridge Road (toucan crossing linking both sides of the Ladybrook Valley) had started on site on 6 August 2018 and was scheduled to take eight weeks to complete. There would be the need to have temporary two way signals when the Council was removing the existing refuge and installing a new bridge parapet. At other times it was envisaged that work could be undertaken safely whilst accommodating two way traffic.

 

The other scheme was on Cheadle Road, Cheadle Hulme outside Cheadle College. A Section 278 Agreement was required associated with the development of the new nursery, primary and secondary school. The Council was currently waiting for the Section 278 Agreement to be signed by the developer which would trigger payment for the scheme. It was hoped that the agreement would be signed in time for the school summer holidays, but this had not been the case. Until this had been signed and the Council had received the funding then the works could not be started.

 

The construction programme for the works was for thirty three works which would include times when utility company plant was being diverted. During this time congestion was expected as the Council had to install temporary traffic signals to enable the works to be constructed safely.

 

RESOLVED – That the Corporate Director for Place Management and Regeneration be requested to provide to the Area Committee a detailed timetable for the works on Cheadle Road, Cheadle Hulme.
