    Decision taken under delegation by virtue of:

    Scheme of Delegation Part 3 – Specific Delegation to Officers EAI16

     

    Summary:

    Recommendations relating to the Highways Programme for 20/21 were made to Members of the Spelthorne Joint Committee in a Highways Update report that was published in line with legal guidelines ahead of the meeting and which can be found here:

    https://mycouncil.surreycc.gov.uk/documents/s66744/Highways%20Update%20SPE%20v2.pdf

     

     

    This report would have been considered at Committee’s meeting of 23rd March 2020.  This meeting was cancelled due to the outbreak of COVID-19. The subsequent decisions were made by the Delegated Officer, in consultation with committee members, in accordance with the Remote Working protocols.

     

     

    Decision made:

     

    With reference to the recommendations in the Highways Update report:

     

    (i)            Delegate authority to the Area Highways Manager to decide preferred option(s) for the Shepperton High Street ITS scheme, in consultation with the Chairman, Vice Chairman and Divisional Member, and to undertake all necessary legal processes, to enable to enable this scheme to be delivered next Financial Year 2020-21

     

    (ii)          Approve the advertisement of an extension of the Thames Street 20mph Zone to include the one-way sections of Church Street and Green Street, Lower Sunbury, to authorise the Area Highways Manager to consider any representations in consultation with the Chairman, Vice Chairman and Divisional Member, and if there are no significant objections to implement the scheme.

     

     

    (iii)         Delegate authority to the Area Highways Manager to decide preferred option(s) for the Walton Bridge Road, Shepperton ITS scheme, in consultation with the Chairman, Vice Chairman and Divisional Member, to enable the scheme to move forwards through detailed design and consultation next Financial Year 2020-21.

     

    (iv)         Delegate authority to the Area Highways Manager to decide preferred option(s) for the Chertsey Road ITS scheme, in consultation with the Chairman, Vice Chairman and Divisional Member, to enable the scheme to move forwards through detailed design and consultation next Financial Year 2020-21.

    (v)          Authorise the Area Highway Manager in consultation with the Chairman, Vice Chairman, and relevant Divisional Member(s) to undertake all necessary procedures to deliver the agreed programmes.

     

    Subsequent to the cancellation of the meeting, there was considerable discussion by e-mail and telephone about which projects should be priorities for the 2020-21 capital ITS programme.  There was a consensus among Members to introduce a new project for feasibility, consultation and detailed design – this new project being to renew the rising bollards in Staines High Street which was brought about by a Members’ question from the Divisional Member for Staines and which has been published to the website as item 6. Members were made aware that introducing a new project would mean other projects would need to be deferred.  To conclude the discussion, the Area Highway Manager recommended the following programme:

     

    For construction / implementation

    Shepperton High Street

    Construction of pedestrian improvements.

    £40,000

    Lower Hampton Road, Sunbury

    Implementation of speed management scheme to address persistent pattern of casualties.

    £20,000

    Church Street / Green Street, Lower Sunbury

    Implementation of extension of 20mph Zone to start of one-way system

    £10,000  ...  view the full decision text for item 9.
