Requesting traffic management and road safety improvements

You can use this page to request a new traffic management or safety scheme.

Our two-stage process aims to maximise the resources available to us by implementing schemes which provide the most benefit in terms of safety, local transport and value for money.

Transport goals

The Joint Local Transport Plan (2011-2026) sets out policies to deliver an affordable, low carbon, accessible, integrated, efficient and reliable transport network to support a more competitive economy and better connected, more active and healthy communities.

All suggested new schemes will be scored against the following objectives:

  • reduce carbon emissions
  • support economic growth
  • promote accessibility
  • contribute to better safety, security and health
  • improve quality of life and benefit a healthy natural environment

The scoring process provides a robust method of evaluating and comparing proposals in a consistent manner, highlighting those that best match up with these important strategic objectives.

How it works

The Local Transport Priority List is a process which is in place for people who live and work in the area to raise issues and make suggestions about changes and improvements to the highway, footway and cycling infrastructure.

The LTPL is made up of two separate lists:

1. Local Transport Priority List of Investigation Schemes

The Local Transport Priority List of scored investigation schemes records all the schemes previously requested that are competing for detailed and full investigation by our Assess and Decide traffic management team.

2. Local Transport Priority List of Implementation Schemes

The Local Transport Priority List of scored and costed implementation schemes records all the schemes justified and competing for implementation in our ongoing Capital Programme each year.

You can find out more about the process by reading the Local Transport Priority List process.
