South Tyneside Council Notice Of Proposed Zebra Crossing, Green Lane Zebra Crossing, South Shields 2020
NOTICE is hereby given that South Tyneside Council, after consultation with the Chief Officer of Police and having notified the Secretary of State in writing, proposes under Section 23 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 and sections 90A and 90C of the Highways Act 1980 and the Highways (Road Humps) Regulations 1999 to install a new zebra crossing in the place described in schedule 1 below.
New Zebra Crossing
Green Lane, South Shields - The centre of the crossing is to be located 16 metres south west of the junction with Kestrel Way
Associated zig-zag markings on which vehicles would be prohibited from stopping at all times will be marked either side of the crossing extending up to 17 metres south westwards and 20 metres north eastwards.
The raised crossing plateaux will consist of a raised surface above the existing carriageway for the full width of the road located 11 metres south west of its junction with Kestrel Way for a distance of 10 metres in a south westerly direction with ramps measuring 2 metres in length.
The raised crossing is necessary to ensure safety of pedestrians at this point and to reduce traffic speeds.
