2. NOTICE IS ALSO HEREBY GIVEN that the Council under section 23 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, sections 90A and 90C of the Highways Act 1980 and the Highways (Road Humps) Regulations 1999 proposes to:

(a) establish and construct a raised “toucan” pedestrian crossing on Forest Road with the centre of the crossing and raised table situated approximately 2 metres west of the boundary wall of Nos. 411 and 413 Forest Road. Associated zig-zag markings, on which vehicles would be prohibited from stopping at all times, would be placed on the carriageway either side of the crossing (extending 22 metres eastwards and westwards). The speed table on which parallel pedestrian and cyclist crossing would be located would be 50 metres in length including the gradients;

(b) remove the existing zebra crossing outside Nos. 431 / 435 Forest Road and remove the zig-zag markings associated with that crossing.

(c) establish and construct a raised parallel (pedestrians and pedal cycles) crossing in Forest Road with the centre of the crossing and raised table situated on the boundary of Nos 465 and 467 Forest Road. Associated zig-zag markings, on which vehicles would be prohibited from stopping at all times would be placed on the carriageway either side of the crossing (extending 22 metres eastwards and westwards). The speed table on which parallel crossing would be located would be 17 metres in length including the gradients;

(d) remove the existing zebra crossing on Forest Road near Gaywood Road and establish a parallel (pedestrians and pedal cycles) crossing. The existing zig-zag markings would be extended 2 metres in the eastern direction and 4 metres in the western direction.

(e) remove the existing zebra crossing on Forest Road near Jewel Road and establish a parallel (pedestrians and pedal cycles) crossing. The existing zig-zag markings on the eastern side of the crossing would be extended 4 metres in the eastern direction.

Parking on a Copenhagen styled crossing (as with any raised section of highway above the existing highway) is prohibited under section 86 of The Traffic Management Act 2004 (exceptions apply), as such parking would be prohibited in these locations.

The raised tables would each be an elevated section of carriageway, between 90 and 100 millimetres (+/-5mm) higher at their highest point than the surrounding carriageway, extending across the full width of the carriageway.
