Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – September 2016

1)   Maws Lane & Hardy Street & Swingate Traffic Improvements Kimberley – the County Council response

(This part is a long read)

On 25 August I met with County Council Officials to discuss their provisional plans to alter the Maws Lane junction which I have covered previously (see for example):-  http://richardsrobinson.org.uk/2016/07/broxtowe-news-update-information-service-july-2016/ (item 10).

If you have been receiving this newsletter for a while you will be aware that I have spent some considerable time – in fact over a year in total consulting with local residents, asking Kimberley Town Council for their views, undertaking a survey and holding public meetings in order to get the most comprehensive information together on what local residents would like to see by way of traffic improvements in Kimberley.  Not only in Maws Lane/Hardy Street area, but also Swingate.

The main message the County Council gave me on 25 August concerning Maws Lane & Hardy Street was this “we are going to spend £25,000 on the easiest and cheapest way of making improvements in Maws Lane by removing two parking spaces“.

I contended that when funding in local government is so very tight that it would be better to spend a fraction of that money looking at more comprehensive long term solutions to ongoing problems in Maws Lane, Hardy Street area and also Swingate.

I pointed out for example that in the Maws Lane area, repeated requests to move the bus stop close to the junction (causing dangerous overtaking) had been disregarded.

As a result of the representations I have made and putting forward the views of local residents the final County Council response is now shown below.  This is respectively in two parts a) email of 13 September from Paul Hillier and b) a document (pros and cons) summarising the County Council response to some residents suggestions for a One Way system on Maws Lane.

All of the details are shown immediately below.

I have not responded to the County Council yet.  However I would be very happy to know your thoughts on the details that are shown below.   If you have comments to make please let me know by Friday 30 September if at all possible, and if you could mark your email “County Council Kimberley Highways response” this would be really helpful.

Interestingly yesterday I have had a response from the Police Commissioner for Nottinghamshire (as I had referred the matter to the police for their statutory comment).  I understand that the Heidi Duffy – the Traffic & Road Casualty Reduction Manager from Nottinghamshire Police will be undertaking a site visit in conjunction with the local policing inspector, in order to get a firmer understanding of what the actual problems are.  I will be contacting Heidi to understand their perspective.

From: Paul Hillier paul.hillier@nottscc.gov.uk


Dear Richard,

I refer to your email to Steph Walford of 24th August concerning various traffic issues in Kimberley, which has been passed to me. I have reviewed the proposals put forward and have the following observations:

Maws Lane/Eastwood Road

The accident record at the Maws Lane/Eastwood Road junction is such that remedial action is required. Having considered the nature of the accidents, the county council has identified the most cost-effective solution, which is to remove two parking spaces nearby. The alternative proposal (to introduce one-way orders on Maws Lane and Hardy Street) is not considered an appropriate accident remedial measure, in part, due to the higher cost of introducing it. The county council is duty-bound to seek the most cost-effective solution in order to maximise the benefits that can be achieved using public money. Additionally, the proposal to introduce a one-way system on Maws Lane and Hardy Street is not considered appropriate due to the unnecessarily high complexity of the proposal and the fact that the cons appear to far outweigh the pros. I have provided a summary of the pros and cons of the one-way system in order to provide greater clarity.


Installation of traffic lights at the Greens Lane/Main Street junction would possibly reduce delays for traffic leaving Greens Lane during busy periods (although this is not certain, and needs to be investigated) but it would certainly increase delays during quiet periods (that is, most of the time) and would increase delays to westbound traffic on Main Street at all times. It is doubtful whether the proposal would provide any overall benefit but this can be tested and the county council will arrange for a study to be carried out to test these assertions, to determine whether it is feasible to install lights and, if so, to determine the likely cost of doing so.

It may be possible to move one of the bus stops so that it is further away from the other. However, this will only provide any benefit if buses actually stop at these stops at the same time on a regular basis. I will ask our passenger transport team to consider whether any changes to the location of the stops is feasible.

The land either side of the carriageway does not belong to the county council, so there is no scope to widen the road or provide bus lay-bys. In any event, the county council would not consider constructing bus lay-bys because they adversely affect bus journey times and reliability because drivers often find it difficult to return to the carriageway.

The proposal to construct a new road to provide an access through Sainsbury’s car park via the old telephone exchange site cannot be taken forward because it would require the use of private land to provide public access. In order to achieve this, it would require the landowner to dedicate the route as public highway (in order to protect public right of access), something the landowner is not likely to consent to. Notwithstanding the legal issues, the cost of constructing a new road would be very high compared to the economic benefit that would be achieved and such a proposal would not be considered a high priority for bids for funding. There would also be significant safety concerns relating to the use of a car park for large volumes of through traffic.

20mph limits

The county council is currently undertaking a pilot study in order to determine its view on the introduction of 20 mph speed limits. Should the council agree to their introduction, the request for such limits at the suggested locations can be considered.

Maws Lane/Hardy Street one-way proposal


  • Accident saving at the Maws Lane/Eastwood Road junction.
  • Retention of two parking spaces on Eastwood Road.


  • The diversion route would be very long and would encourage motorists to ignore it. For example, residents living at the north end of Maws Lane or around Cornfield Road returning home via High Spannia would have to travel an additional mile, compared to the handful of yards they would travel if they took the risk of ignoring the restriction. Likewise, residents living in the Hardy Street area would have to travel an additional three quarters of a mile. The potential for motorists to ignore the one-way order has obvious safety concerns.
  • The additional distance would add to journey time, thus increasing driver frustration which, in turn, would encourage motorists to travel at higher speeds. This has obvious safety issues. (A specific concern would be Hardy Street where the lack of any on-coming traffic would encourage a significant increase in speeds.)
  • Additional journey distance would have a significant impact on the response times for emergency service vehicles.
  • The current bus services that travel northbound up Hardy Street would need to be diverted via Eastwood Road and Maws Lane. This would have significant implications for journey times, service frequency and access to services for many residents.
  • Increased driving distance would also be environmentally damaging, worsening air quality and adding to fuel use (which would also affect family incomes).
  • An increase in the volume of traffic exiting Hardy Street at the Nine Corners junction could lead to an increase in the number of accidents at that junction. Visibility out of Nine Corners is, if anything, worse than that at Maws Lane.
  • Given the above concerns, it is possible that a one-way system would generate more accidents than the present arrangement.
  • Removing the alleged “confusion” over right of way on Maws Lane would increase vehicle speeds.
  • Station Road is currently one-way westbound. Although the left turn manoeuvre out of Station Road onto Nine Corners is not banned, it is difficult. Theoretically, it would be made easier by the removal of northbound traffic from Nine Corners but, in practice, requiring all traffic from Station Road to turn left may not be feasible, especially for large vehicles. It is possible that the present one-way would need to be reversed. This would increase traffic volumes on Station Road significantly because it is likely to become the preferred route for traffic heading towards the town centre from Hardy Street.
  • Loss of two parking spaces on Eastwood Road.


  • It is likely that increasing the journey distance for traffic travelling from Main Road to Eastwood Road via the current Holly Road/High Spannia/Maws Lane route would lead to traffic diverting to other routes, notably Newdigate Road/Street. This would be considered a benefit to some residents and a disbenefit to others.



Introducing a one-way Order wouldn’t be especially expensive in itself: costs would be incurred for staff time undertaking the necessary consultation, drafting and making the required legal Order, and the manufacture and installation of the necessary signing. However, this would be relatively high for a one-way scheme, particularly given that there appears to be no evidence that it could be introduced with raising a considerable number of objections.

Notwithstanding all the above mentioned cons, compared to the very modest cost of removing the parking spaces on Eastwood Road, it is difficult to justify the more expensive (one-way) option simply to achieve the same end.


2)   Aldi Store Stapleford

I have received some requests for updates on what is happening with the proposed Aldi development in Stapleford.  The information that I have received from the Planning Department at Broxtowe is that planning permission is in place for development together with an added condition that the houses to be built at the same time as the store.  Essentially – watch this space.

More information available from Steffan Saunders – Planning & Policy Manager Broxtowe Borough Council: pabc@broxtowe.gov.uk or steffan.saunders@broxtowe.gov.uk


3)   532 Bus – Selston – Eastwood via Kimberley

I reported in July that I had been contacted by a number of residents – very unhappy with the reduction in services that were then imminent, and have since been implemented.  This particularly affects people in the Hardy Street, Cliff Boulevard, Alma Hill and Maws Lane vicinity of Kimberley.  There are a good number of people who are elderly, who do not drive and therefore have no other means of getting into Kimberley for shopping.

Two years ago a lot of people got in touch about this service and I spent a fair amount of time pressing the County Council to take some action.  They did respond positively then, however the current position worries me a lot.

I have made urgent representations to Nottinghamshire County Council about this matter and I have asked several weeks ago to meet up with Chris Ward the Manager for Transport & Travel Services.

I am still awaiting to hear back from the County Council.  When there is more information I will let you know.



4)  Newdigate Street and Main Street – road works, Kimberley

I received some complaints about the recent tarmac resurfacing undertaken in the above location.

I made the appropriate representations to:

7)   A610 Road Noise Kimberley

Regular readers will know that this is very long running issue (I have been lobbying the County Council about this since 2001).  I have started to receive further complaints again now from people in the Chantry Close and Kimberley Close areas of Kimberley.

If you are still affected by this is any way can you please let me know.


8)  Nottingham University Hospitals (NUH)- long term partnership with Sherwood Forest Hospitals

10)   Parking issue on Nottingham Road Kimberley, near to Broomhill Road

Some residents have asked for a survey and some kind of traffic management plan to remedy the situation.

Gerry Hargreaves has a background of electrical installation and maintenance followed by considerable experience of energy monitoring providing technical support to the marketing division of East Midlands Electricity.

Projects throughout the UKhave included energy monitoring and data/billing analysis to assist companies to improve efficient use of energy. This has included disputes with electricity suppliers and distributors and site surveys, installation of temporary monitoring equipment and recommendations to install suitable power factor correction equipment. Site surveys for the installation of a M&T at major sites, have been undertaken and with the recent advances in remote monitoring technologies surveys and installation of GSM smart meters have been undertaken at distribution centres of a leading logistics company. A request by a leading UKenergy supplier has resulted in the installation of remote data collection technology, including planning and installation of remote data logging equipment to monitor and analyse usage data from geothermal sites within theUK. This work is ongoing in the development of renewable energy and low carbon technology.

Site visits and travel are significant reduced with the application of t-mac technology.
