We have carried out a traffic assessment for the proposed site, in combination with other committed and allocated developments in the area until 2030.
Our plans include vehicular access being provided with a new link road between Gritstone Road and Pinewood Road, which will be completed before 150 homes are built. This will offer an alternative route for new and existing residents in the Cavendish Road area. We will carry out improvements at the Crown Square junction, along with widening the carriageway on Gritstone Road and Pinewood
Alongside improvements for traffic we will support pedestrians and cyclists with better access around the area, including links to Far Cross, and Gritstone Road. A further pedestrian link will be provided to Sandy Lane. We have agreed to fund an extension of the M1 bus service through the proposed site along with new bus stops with the local highway authority. This service will be extended to 7am-7pm, Monday to Saturday.
A new local centre on site for neighbourhood shopping will assist in reducing trips off-site.
