Melton Road Crossings

Melton Road Crossings

Update – June 2021

Further to the consultation that was carried out by Melton Parish Council earlier this year, Highways were asked to look at an alternative crossing point on Melton Road. This was because some residents were unhappy at the loss of on-road parking.

The alternative location that has been identified is closer to the Coach and Horses and will provide a safer crossing point for those coming from the school and/or Dock Lane. Double yellow lines would be introduced for the length of the crossing markings.

Melton Parish Council has carried out several consultations with Melton residents on how money received from Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) should be spent. The request for road crossings along Melton Road, to enable safer passage across the road and to help reduce speeding, has received much public support. We hope to have two crossing points installed.

Three areas were identified as being natural crossing points: Melton Playing Fields/Melton Produce, The Spar/John Grose Garage and New Quay Lane/Turnpike Lane (Melton Hill).

Working closely with Highways and after a number of iterations, two locations have been suggested that combine a useful crossing point with the least loss of parking spaces along Melton Road. The crossings will be island refuges in the middle of the road – an example is shown below.
