Stefano of the Timsbury Posse brought this to my attention.
Bath & North East Somerset Council has launched a new draft transport strategy for Keynsham and wants to hear your views. The aim is to reduce congestion and allow people to move around to make the long-term economic strategy for the area work. The Draft Strategy has a vision for transport in Keynsham which is:
To minimise the negative effects of traffic congestion in and around Keynsham and ensuring it retains its independence and its separate identity within an attractive rural setting by becoming a more sustainable, desirable and well-connected place in which to live and work.
They want our opinions and with statements like this in their consultation document they are definitely going to get them:
2.85 Key Action: Pursue specific junction improvements and investigate other measuresfurther:The existing Wellsway, Bath Road, Bath Hill mini-roundabout is converted to asignalised junction to increase its capacity;Two southbound lanes are provided at the proposed Keynsham Road / Avon MillLane signalised junction;A study into Hick’s Gate is undertaken to determine a suitable scheme to increaseits capacity;Investigate schemes to introduce one-way operation on the High Street in the shortterm, possibly during off-peak hours only (10:00-16:00);Investigate other strategic improvements that could reduce the volume of throughtraffic in the town centre, allowing one-way operation of the High Street to cater forthe predicted increases in future traffic demand.
