Madeira Drive - Changes to the parking arrangements and tariffs

Decision Maker: Environment, Transport & Sustainability Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The report outlines a number of changes to the parking on the ground and tariff costs following the safety requirement for a 4m perimeter fence to allow works on the arches


1)           That Committee agrees to remove the perpendicular parking on the north side of Madeira Drive east of the Concorde and replace this with parallel parking on both sides of the road. The parking on the north side will be further complemented with a 1.2 metre wide footway strip to provide safe means of access to and from vehicles. The parking on the southern side will also give some protection to the cycle lane and it will be further supported by extending the barriers further towards the Dukes Mound.


2)           That Committee agrees to the installation of a section of white centre line markings at the eastern end of the road where road widths are narrower. Once finalised a Road Safety Audit would be undertaken.


3)           That Committee approves that a Traffic  Regulation Order (TRO) is advertised so 20 parking spaces west of the Concorde are changed from high tariff to low tariff bays with the associated annual revenue loss of approximately £80,000 plus the TRO costs for the Parking & Network Operations service.


4)           That Committee approves advertising a separate retrospective Traffic Regulation Order to incorporate any of the minor changes to bays again under the revenue budget for the Parking & Network Operations service.
