Henfield Road highway scheme proposals

Earlier this year the Frome Vale Area Forum agreed that one of this year’s highway investigation schemes should look at the problem of speeding traffic on Henfield Road within the Quiet Lanes Scheme.

South Gloucestershire Council Officers have made two proposals. The first is for some “signing and lining” measures, which can be implemented this financial year from existing budgets.

If you have any comments please contact me using the details above or the Parish Clerk, Fiona Thornton (westerleighpc@btinternet.com), before Monday 10th November.  

The second proposal is for a gateway treatment, high friction surface and a cycle lane along part of Henfield Road. The plans are too large to print on A4 paper but I’ve made them available on my web site, westerleigh.mycouncillor.org.uk. This proposal has been added to the Local Transport Priority List and will be considered for funding along with all the other schemes for the area at the Frome Vale Area Forum meeting at 7pm on Thursday 5th March in Shireway Community Centre (venue subject to change). You would be very welcome to attend to explain why you think this scheme should be funded, as a number of local people did earlier this year when the investigation scheme was chosen
