Questions at full council

Here are the questions that I asked on behalf of the residents of Boscombe West at the full council meeting yesterday:

Can we be advised of the plans to revise the Boscombe Spa road, Christchurch Rd junction, funded by the Barratt Homes capital receipt?

The section 106 agreement associated with the Boscombe Spa development contributed £200,000 on commencement of the redevelopment towards highway safety improvements along Christchurch Road at the junctions with Crabton Close Rd and Boscombe Spa Rd to mitigate the increased traffic generated by the development.

GENERAL QUESTION FOR COUNCIL MEETING ON 24 July 2007


To the Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport

‘Can the relevant Cabinet Member please advise me on the status of plans to revise the Boscombe Spa Road / Christchurch Road junction, funded by the Barratt Homes capital receipt.?’

Councillor Northover


Cabinet Member reply:

‘The Section 106 Agreement associated with the Boscombe Spa development contributed £200,000 on commencement of the development towards highway safety improvements along Christchurch Road at the junctions with Crabton Close Road and Boscombe Spa Road to mitigate the increased traffic generated by the development.

A road safety scheme has recently been completed at the Crabton Close Road junction, which was wholly funded through the Local Transport Plan (LTP), leaving the £200,000 developer contribution available for improvements in the vicinity of the Boscombe Spa Road junction.
.
Traffic survey data has been collected along Christchurch Road between and including Manor Road and St John’s Road junctions, prior to initiating further detailed design work.

It is proposed that detailed design will be undertaken this year by our transportation partnering consultants, Mouchel Parkman, in conjunction with the study work associated with the LTP Prime Transport Corridor initiative and bus priority measures proposed along the A35 Christchurch Road.

Subject to the outcome of the associated public consultation and finalising the detailed scheme design, it is anticipated that the jointly funded developer/LTP project for highway safety improvements in the Christchurch Road/Boscombe Spa Road area will be implemented during 2008/09.’
