Bridge Hill, Oughtibridge Accident Reduction Scheme proposal

There have been a number of accidents involving people using motorcycles and bicycles on Orchard Street being hit by people driving out of Bridge Hill onto Station Lane without giving way. In the last five years three people on motorcycles and six people on bicycles have been injured, six of them seriously.

We held an informal consultation with Oughtibridge residents in March 2019 about our proposal to close Bridge Hill to solve this injury accident problem. Since then we have looked at the suggestions residents and the Oughtibridge Road Safety Action Group made, considered parking and how vehicles could access Bridge Hill to make deliveries. In consultation with Local Councillors and the Cabinet Member for Transport we concluded that the only practical way to reduce accidents at the junction is to close Bridge Hill.

We are now proposing to:

  • close Bridge Hill to motor vehicles at its junction with Langsett Road North, people on bicycles and walking would be able to go through the closure
  • put one disabled badge holder parking space on Langsett Road South outside the shops
  • introduce time restricted parking, double/single yellow lines and prohibition of footway parking on Bridge Hill and double yellow lines on parts of Langsett Road North

This scheme is planned to be introduced during 2021.
