There are 2 way traffic signals set up for new home construction of cross carriageway excavations taking place on Bankside Rd. Traffic from Bridle close (In the middle of the works) is emerging onto Bankside without the aid of temporary traffic signals. This is a very fast 30mph road and with narrow access/egress and added difficulty of Chicanes, which means you can't determine who has right of way. There are 40 homes in Bridle Close with probably over 250 road movements daily. In my 18 years of working on Highways I believe this is a dangerous layout and should be made into a 3 way temporary signal junction asap. Please get your Roadspace supervisors to investigate. This started yesterday and I only had chance to report today.
The Highway supervisor will need to check the TM as there are no End of Works signs at either end of the works. There is also no safety zone between the deep excavation and barrier/cone line. The excavation goes out to the centre line. This should be 0.5m minimum distance. There are only 2 cones between the tapers and 4 cones on each taper, so only 2 cones for length of works - approx 19mtrs. In my opinion this TM does not conform to Safety at Street works and Road works Code of Practice (DfT) 2013.
