RE: Photos of Muscliffe Lane

Dear Cllr Whittaker

Stuart and myself met with officers from Planning and Transport earlier this week who have been working hard to design a drainage solution for Holdenhurst Village and procure the necessary surfacing contractor for Muscliffe Lane. Please be assured that the total 349k obtained via the Severe Weather Fund has been committed to this scheme and Ian/Anthony should be able to provide you with more detail as to the exact nature of the works and a proposed start date.

Kind Regards,
Larry Austin, Strategic Operations Manager, Bournemouth Council

Stuart.

Time is moving on and with the vast amount of funding being direct to making cycling/walking safe, one ask as to WHY even after the photo evidence being provided for this designated cycle route through Throop the rural section of Muscliffe Lane, that all I am told actively working on a programme of works for both the lane and Throop Road.

With both roads now having increase traffic due to the endless traffic problems of Castle Lane West, my emails below set out all my frustrations, let's forget Richmond hill and direct monies to resolving the road conditions in our area, need the starting date for Muscliffe Lane. Thanks.

Dear Councillor Whittaker

Thank you for your e-mail

Officers from Street Services and Planning and Transport are actively working on a programme of works for Throop Road and the rural section of Muscliffe Lane. I appreciate that this is taking time to establish but we want to design a scheme that is sustainable and for the long-term, and is not just a quick fix, short term solution.

I will be in touch again as soon as I have any further information.

Stuart Best,

Stuart.

See the good news that Bournemouth is to receive some 286k for further improvement to the road surface, as I have over the years made representation over the poor road surface in the RURAL SECTION of Muscliffe Lane, and Throop Road, some months ago you were planning a programme in the lane, and as again I have pointed out various sections that need this attention, and as we are keen in improving safe cycling, this being a designated cycle route, besides a walkers area, which has also much local traffic, can you please tell me WHEN THE AUTHORITY INTEND TO CARRY OUT THE RESURFACING TO THE LANE AND SECTIONS OF THROOP ROAD, hoping I don't need to take this to the next panel. THANKS.

Dear Councillor Whittaker

Thank you for your e-mail

I can confirm that Officers from Street Services and Planning and Transport are currently putting together a funding bid to the recently announced Department for Transport Pothole Fund. This is in addition to the funding we have already received from the Severe Weather Recovery Scheme.

I have asked one of our highway inspectors to visit the site and organise the necessary work to repair the pothole you have highlighted.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you require any further information.
