Subject: Thomas Street Prohibition of Waiting and One Way orders
Recently, an advertisement for two proposals for Thomas Street Hindley was issued. One proposal was to introduce a Prohibition of Waiting order at the junctions of Thomas Street/East Street and Thomas Street/Harrison Street.The other was to introduce a One Way order on Thomas Street for its full length. As a result of the advertising 5 objections were received to the Prohibition of Waiting and 3 to the One Way order.
Four of the objections to the Prohibition of Waiting were on the basis that the residents would not be able to park outside their properties and the displacement of their vehicles would have a detrimental affect on other residents.The other objection was a comment rather than an objection as it was a request to mark the restrictions across the school access.
The three objections to the one way order were regarding access difficulties onto Thomas Street from East Street due to the parking of vehicles.
The two proposals need to be considered together as they are interlinked. The objections to the One Way order can only be addressed if the proposals for the Prohibition of Waiting at the junction of Thomas Street and East Street are introduced. We acknowledge the fact that the introduction of the Prohibition of Waiting order will prevent the residents directly affected from parking outside their properties but there is ample parking available in Thomas Street for the residents to park on street outside of the school dropping off/picking up times as non resident parking levels are low.
We are recommending that :-
1) The introduction of the Prohibition of Waiting order at Thomas Street/East Street be implemented as advertised but the proposals for Thomas Street/Harrison Street be abandoned as there will only be one turning manoeuvre if Thomas Street is made one way.
2) The one way order on Thomas Street for its full length be introduced as advertised.

Thomas St One Way Consultation. Consultation Form

The issue of volume of traffic in Thomas St and the constant blockages created by this volume of traffic at school times is the main issue in the proposal for a one way system.
Following numerous complaints, Hindley Green Residents Association first became involved in 2008 and since then numerous discussions have taken place with WMBC Highways Dept. staff, and several proposals have been put forward.

With the building of new housing units on the site of the old Primary School, and the completion of the Sport England football pitches, these problems will surely worsen and the proposed one-way system is an attempt to alleviate the traffic problems and, most importantly, could help to improve a Health and Safety issue, particularly in view of the number of children attending the new school.

Everyone concerned is entitled to their views. That is why there is a Consultation Procedure in progress and no doubt you will have received the Consultation letter from Mr. Ian Lovatt, Area Engineer (WMBC), dated 1st November 2012, with its accompanying questionnaire, where you can express your feelings.
