Oaks Road access

Posted: Mon, 30 Mar 2020 12:21 by Bill Glasper

Following comments from general public regarding access to Oaks Road we have the following response from the Network.

"The current footway in Great Glen stops by the last house on the corner of Coverside Road/ Oaks Road, there is then no footway all the way along the rest of Oaks Road as it travels out into the countryside.

Where there are no pedestrian provisions in the way of a footway to begin with, when a closure takes place there is no requirement to provide one. LCC have not advertised any temporary pedestrian footways and I am not aware of Miller Homes having done so either, so I am unaware where this information may have originated from. More »

There are no PROWs or Bridleways within the hard closure area that anyone would require access to, the closest is Bridleway C14 on the bend by the hard closure, which can still be accessed by following the suggested diversion route.

Having spoken to Miller Homes, although the site works has ceased for the time being due to Covid-19, the closure will remain in place for continuing gas utility works and for the safety of the public. There are open excavations and materials in the closure zone that cannot be currently dealt with." » Less
