  • Marsh Lane - construct flat-top road humps* across the following roads at their junctions with B4150 Marsh Lane:
    • Elms Drive, and
    • Horseman Close.

* The humps will be 75mm high and have ramp gradients of 1:12, with the width of the flat tops of the humps being approximately 2.5 metres. 

  • Marsh Lane approximately 20m north of the junction with Horseman Close - convert the existing ‘pelican’ crossing to a ‘toucan’ crossing that can be used by both pedestrians and pedal cyclists.
  • Oxford Road / Newman Road - convert sections of footway in the area to a shared use footway / cycle track.
