Summary

MK Council is formally consulting on the following proposed traffic regulation Order

THE COUNCIL OF THE BOROUGH OF MILTON KEYNES (A4146 BLETCHAM WAY (H10), CALDECOTTE) (PROHIBITION OF U-TURN) ORDER 2020

The general effect of the above order will be to introduce a u-turn ban on the eastbound carriageway of the A4146 Bletcham Way (H10) at its junction with Monellan Grove, Caldecotte, thus preventing vehicles using this junction to access the westbound carriageway.   Vehicles can access the westbound carriageway on A4146 Bletcham Way at Walton Park Roundabout, a distance of 480 metres away from the junction. 

The Council's reason for introducing the prohibition of u-turn restriction comes as a result of concerns raised by residents and councillors that there is a high volume of vehicles making u-turn manoeuvres at this junction which have resulted in several near misses.  As a result of these concerns, MK Council installed cameras on the junction to monitor vehicular movements.  The video footage captured by the camera clearly shows that there is in fact a high volume of u-turn manoeuvres being carried out at this location, several of which resulted in near misses. 

The Council considers it expedient to introduce the u-turn ban restriction:

  • to facilitate the expeditious, convenient and safe movement of motorists at the junction of Bletcham Way and Monellan Grove;
  • for avoiding danger to persons using the road or for preventing the likelihood of any such danger arising.

 Copies of the notice of proposal, proposed Order together with a plan showing the general arrangements of the electric vehicle parking places and a statement of reasons, are available for inspection on the left-hand side of this webpage under the heading “Documents”

Any objections to the above proposals, together with the grounds upon which they are made, must be made in writing and sent to the Council’s Traffic Regulation Order Team at Milton Keynes Council, Synergy Park, Chesney Wold, Bleak Hall, Milton Keynes, MK6 1LY, or by email to TROteam@milton-keynes.gov.uk quoting reference TRO-304.

The closing date for this consultation is 19 November 2020.

Please submit your comments before the closing date otherwise your comments may not be considered.
