Temporary parking restrictions on High Street & Mead Lane - Monday 6 February 2023 - Saltford Parish Council

Wessex Water has contacted Saltford Parish Council to share that in line with the Temporary Traffic Regulation Order there will be parking restrictions on the High Street and Mead Lane on Monday 6 February. This is to allow access for the delivery of heavy machinery.

Wessex Water has written (or will soon write) to residences that may be affected, letter as follows:

In line with the Temporary Traffic Restriction Order (TTRO) in place for High Street and Mead Lane in Saltford, we are notifying you that parking restrictions will be in place for these roads on Monday 6 February 2023.

Why is the temporary traffic restriction order (TTRO) required?

The order is required to improve accessibility for vehicles travelling to Saltford Water Recycling Centre to make deliveries for the start of construction work taking place. This work involves constructing a new access road from the A431, to alleviate existing congestion from vehicles that currently access the Wessex Water site along High Street and Mead Lane.

On this occasion, restrictions are required to allow for the delivery of machinery for advance ground preparation. A further restriction order is likely in April for the removal of both this and other equipment.

The TTRO covers an 18-month period, but restrictions will not be in place for that amount of time. Instead, there will be a number of occasions during this period, such as this one, where restrictions are required. Restrictions will not be in place on weekends and bank holidays.

What does the order mean?

On this occasion, these restrictions will be in force during working hours (between 8:30am and 4pm) only. During these times you will be required to remove parked vehicles from these roads to allow the space for deliveries to the Saltford Water Recycling Centre on Mead Lane. These latest restrictions will finish at the end of the working day.

How will this affect me?

A marshal will be on hand to assist with vehicle access and exit to and from the holding bay at Saltford Court as necessary.

As agreed with Saltford Parish Council and local B&NES members, Wessex Water will attempt to meet any the special needs or concerns of any residents when the restrictions are in place.

Any known significant deliveries and building works that may affect vehicle movements while the restrictions are in place should also be reported to us.

These requests should be phoned through to the team on 07717 355917 prior to the start of these restrictions.

Anything else you need to know?

We remain committed to working with the local community to understand the potential issues and constraints in relation to the Temporary Traffic Restriction Order and our project team will continue to be available via the dedicated email address saltford.access@wessexwater.co.uk.

There is also information about this scheme on our website, which can be found at www.wessexwater.co.uk/saltfordaccess. We will update this page with any useful information in due course.
