Berkeley Avenue Crossing Facility

Closed 16 Apr 2021

Opened 25 Mar 2021


As part of the NCN 422 cycle route within Berkeley Avenue traffic islands were removed to facilitate the mandatory cycle lane. Unbeknown at the time a set of traffic islands close to Ashley Road provided a valued pedestrian crossing point across Berkeley Avenue. Despite the islands being for the purpose of traffic separation and not being equipped with dropped kerbs a pedestrian desire line had become well established. Following the removal of the traffic island the council received a petition for the crossing point to be restored.

After investigation it has become clear that pedestrian islands can only be reintroduced with the removal of the cycle lane. Consequently, a formal zebra crossing is proposed to reintroduce the crossing point and retain the mandatory cycle lane. This approach establishes the Councils commitment in providing quality pedestrian and cycling facilities and to improve mobility for all.
