What changes are proposed?
We are reducing the speed limit on the length of the A646 Burnley Road, Luddendenfoot between the junction with Ewood Drive, Mytholmroyd and Rock Cliffe Mount, Luddendenfoot. The speed limit will be reduced from 50mph to 40mph.
The proposed order will also correct an anomaly found in the existing order in relation to the 30mph limit. This change merely replicates the existing signed 30mph section that already exists on street.
Why are the changes proposed?
The proposal is sought to improve the safety of traffic (including pedestrians) using the road following a number of reported injury accidents.
When the proposed order is advertised and how the public will know this?
The Traffic Regulation Orders (TRO) were advertised on Friday 14th October 2016. Notices were placed on site, at the various locations.
What happens next?
The Order will come into effect on 9th April 2018.
How to object?
Documents giving more detailed particulars of the order may be inspected during normal office hours at: Halifax Customer First , 19 Horton Street, Halifax HX1 1QE.
If you wish to question the validity of the Order or of any of its provisions on the ground that it is not within the powers conferred by the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 or, that any requirement of that Act or any instrument made under it has not been complied with in relation to the Order, you may within 6 weeks from the date on which the Order was made apply to the High Court for this purpose.
