Buckstone Terrace Pedestrian Crossing Proposals

Closed 26 Mar 2017

Opened 22 Feb 2017


The Council proposes to install a puffin crossing in the vicinity of Buckstone Terrace and Waterfield Road. Preliminary plans have been developed and we now wish to obtain the views of local people on the proposals.

Why We Are Consulting

There are two potential locations for the crossing:

·         Option 1 is to locate the crossing to the north of Waterfield Road, which would require the bus stop on the west side of Buckstone Terrace to be re-located southwards, opposite the bus stop on the east side

·         Option 2 is to locate the crossing to the south of Waterfield Road. Under this option there would be no need to move the bus stop

We would like to know which of the two proposals the community prefer. PDF copies of the plans can be found below under the 'Related' heading.

What Happens Next

We will analyse the responses and provide an update on the outcome of the consultation to everyone who has responded.
