An update to keep you informed of where we have progressed on the issues raised.
I am still chasing on a date for getting this work undertaken. Please be assured this is on my priority of issues to follow up next week.
Bramcote Island Maintenance
Our contractors have this booked in for further maintenance to be undertaken in the last weekend of October. I have instructed additional traffic management and resource to ensure that the entire roundabout is accessed and treated.
Traffic Island Bollards Repairs
The bollard at Priory Island, Wollaton Vale and the one outside the Nursery Man public house (B6006 – turn to Beeston) have been replaced
Bramcote Island Town street Entry
We advised we would investigate whether there was any scope of adjusting the signal timings at Bramcote Island to improve access from Town Street. We have consulted with VIA (Nottinghamshire County Council) regarding the control of the traffic signals. Nottinghamshire County Council manage the traffic signals on behalf of Highways England. The response is as follows.
* There is no scope here to provide longer gaps as it would provide further detriment to existing congestion on the A52
* Further any improvement to Town Street would risk encouraging rat-running down residential roads creating a nuisance to locals.
