Black Forest Residents Alert

After our recent ward briefing last week our Administration has prepared this schedule of works resulting from the recent Black Forest LATM consultation survey.

In the chart WB refers to Ward Briefing. As you will see Jennie and I have ensured some issues, identified as low priority have been bought forward. They are all easy to implement and low cost. The bid ticket item is the one being delayed pending more information from DPTI about what they will be doing with South Road.

Work on South Road is likely (in my opinion) to occur in 2 to 3 years at best and hence we have held back on what would have been the big cost of implementing the LATM

Byron Road (slow points) Medium (3-5 years) As per the Council endorsement, changes to slow points will be considered upon DPTI’s confirmation on the future of South Road
