CYCLISTS and pedestrians would have right of way over motorists at the entrance to Salerie car park under a proposal put forward by Environment & Infrastructure.
Under its £50,000 plan to make the area safer, the cycling and pedestrian paths would be set back from the road.
An application to change the layout, including a raised platform at the entrance, has been submitted to the Planning Service.
If approved, alterations would be made to the junction layout to slow traffic on entry, while changes to the layout of the recycling area and bus stop would also take place.
The long-awaited proposal follows collisions and reports of near misses at the junction.
Environment vice-president Mark Dorey said they would address several safety and traffic concerns.
‘There are many competing demands at this busy junction so the committee wanted to ensure that improvements will provide a safer crossing point for cyclists and pedestrians, reduce the speed of traffic entering the car park and at the same time enhance the area,’ he said.
