Summary of Consultation on Draft Environmental Statement


  1.     INTRODUCTION
  1.1    The County Council’s Cabinet agreed the Preferred Route for the A509
         Isham Bypass on the 27th May 2003. It also decided that preparation work
         should continue towards a planning application.

  1.2    Atkins prepared a Draft Environmental Statement and public consultation
         took place between October 2004 and January 2005, seeking views on the
         environmental issues associated with the details of the proposed bypass.

  1.3    The draft Environmental Statement confirmed that the rights of way
         provision is very important. County Council policy is to maintain and
         improve access to the countryside. The consultation provided local
         opinion about footpath and bridleway usage and it is agreed that in some
         cases better provision needs to be made.

  1.4    The Cabinet Member responsible for Transport decided that in general
         terms there needed to be further discussion and consultation in respect of
         all the rights of way crossing points, involving the local members, local
         councils and interested groups. The Head of Sustainable Transport will
         then decide on which measures should be included in the scheme.

  1.5    The consultation took place between 11 March and 11 April 2005.

  1.6    This document summarises the response and related issues. The returned
         questionnaires are held in a separate volume.




                                                                                 4

John R Fox (96a Orlingbury Rd)                         1           Proper provision is needed for crossing the A14 roundabout
Alan & Jacky Smith (17 Middle St)                      1           Crossing near Sunny Hill would give Pytchley access into Kettering cycle

Michael Mills (31 Bishops Drive)                            1      Use existing A509 to segregate away from traffic. Safe crossing of A14 required.

Paul Thompson (Wellingborough)                             1           Preferred by British Horse Society provided large enough for a tractor.
Mr A J Middleton                                                1      Pytchley church needs vehicular access to field.
Mr W V Tarry                                                    1      Prefer B with GW2 to be upgraded to incorporate bridleway GW15.
Bob Coles (Ramblers)                                       1           Keep away from line of old road on separate bridge across Pytchley Brook
Gwilym Thomas (Ramblers)                                   1           At Grade crossing last resort on a high speed road.
Jay Surti (Highways Agency)                                            If Option A - Please ensure queues do not extend back to A14
Keith Parrott (STMT)                                       1           Like to see GW15 & GW2 aligned together.
Mr Richard Marshall (Path Warden, Isham)                        1      Location 2 and 3 should be taken together. Divert bridleway to south
Mrs B Hargreaves (Path Warden, Pytchley)               1               A subway may become waterlogged & muddy, also safety factor
Ms Alexandra Adams (28 Fairfield Rd)                       1           Keep away from traffic
Jenny Curtis (23Winston Drive)                             1           Subway preferable as horses may distract drivers
Heather Davis (All Saints Hse, Middle St)                       1      Combine with other rights of way/accesses at one crossing
John R Fox (96a Orlingbury Rd)                             1           Pegasus crossing too close to roundabout. Option B an excellent solution
Debra Hargrave (10 Kettering Rd)                           1           Pegasus crossing delays flow of traffic.
Howard S & Margaret E Painter (7 Fairfield Rd)             1           No to Pegasus crossing. Bridge or underpass favoured. Keep route dry
Alan & Jacky Smith (17 Middle St)                          1           A subway would be less disruptive to traffic flow
Lewis Wood (5 Ormond Place)                                1           A subway would probably be the safer of the two.
Mrs Dorothy Hartung (10 Westfields)                        1           Pegasus too close to the roundabout
Mr Mark & Mrs Julia Whatling (19 Hill Top Rd)              1           Pegasus crossing should not be considered on busy dual road. Horse
                                                                       rider
Michael Mills (31 Bishops Drive)                           1           Subways are better idea than Pegasus crossing. Subject to graffiti though.

Mrs Yvonne Blood (FLAG) (3 Furnace Cottages)                  1           Pegasus crossing may cause traffic hold ups.
Mrs Dorothy Hartung (10 Westfields)                           1           Keeps people away from road
Alan & Patricia Robinson (Jester Cottage, 6 Kings Lane)       1           Pegasus crossing seems absurd on such a busy road.
Mr Mark & Mrs Julia Whatling (19 Hill Top Rd)                 1           Son had cycle accident. Don’t support any type of at grade crossing.
Michael Mills (31 Bishops Drive)                              1           Bridges are far better and safer as pedestrians and traffic are segregated

  5.     DISCUSSION AND CHOSEN OPTIONS
  5.1    Location 1 – Cycleway/Footway Isham to Kettering

  5.2    The majority of respondents supported the cycleway. Concern was expressed
         regarding the crossing of the A14 slip roads. Additionally there was a desire to
         retain the old A509 as the route. This was rejected as following landscaping it
         would become hidden away and people would prefer to be nearer the open road

  5.3     A cycleway/footway will be provided along the eastern side of the new road
         between the A14 interchange and the new Kettering Road Roundabout. It will be
         separated from the edge of the carriageway and the rear of the lay-by by a safety
         barrier along this length. It will continue along the eastern side of the road from
         the Kettering Road Roundabout towards Isham and a central traffic island will be
         provided approximately 200 metres from the roundabout for safe crossing to the
         western side of Kettering Road where the footway will be continued to link with the
         existing footway in Isham in the vicinity of the cemetery.

  5.4    Discussions will continue with the Highways Agency for the provision of crossing
         points over the east facing slip roads of the A14 interchange to link with the
         existing footway network in Kettering. Drawing 5026518.911/53/A

  5.5    Location 2 – Bridleway GW15 and Footpath GW2

  5.6    There was little support for a Pegasus type crossing south of the new Kettering
         Road Roundabout and it was suggested that the bridleway be diverted to utilise
         the proposed footbridge.

  5.7    Footpath GW2 will continue to closely follow its current alignment but will make a
         small diversion to pass under the bypass at the culvert carrying Pytchley Brook.
         We will also take the opportunity to improve the access to the western side of
         Kettering Road by provision of a ramp to the new footway (as described above),
         replacing the steep steps currently used. Bridleway GW15 will be diverted to a
         new footbridge/accommodation bridge passing over the bypass, at existing ground
         level, on the extended alignment of the track to the rear of properties in Fairfield
         Road and Winston Drive. The diverted bridleway will then link to Kettering Road
         via the track and current Footpath TM3. Drawing 5026518.911/54/A

  5.8    Location 3 – Footpath TM3

  5.9    The footbridge was well supported but many respondents considered it should be
         moved to provide farming access along the Ruts.

  5.10   As described above a footbridge/accommodation bridge, at existing ground level,
         will be provided on the extended alignment of the current footpath and track to the
         rear of properties in Fairfield Road and Winston Drive. The new bridge will carry
         both the diverted Footpath TM3 and the diverted Bridleway GW15. The bridge will
         also provide access to fields west of the bypass for farming operations. Drawing

  5.11   Location 4 – Footpath TM4

  5.12   The use of the Orlingbury Road Bridge was well supported. Some respondents
         considered that a new footbridge should be constructed on the existing alignment
         but this is not considered cost effective with the new road bridge so close.

  5.13   Footpath TM4 will be diverted east of the bypass to follow the field boundary south
         to Orlingbury Road and remain within the same field on the northern side of
         Orlingbury Road until reaching the new bridge. The bridge will be designed with
         footway provision on the northern side of Orlingbury Road, and the diversion will
         then continue northwards to link with the existing footpath alignment on the
         western side of the bypass.

  5.14   As a separate matter, the County Council will promote the continuation of the
         footpath along the eastern side of the bypass (within the proposed highway
         boundary) to link with the footbridge/accommodation bridge which passes over the
         bypass close to the rear of properties in Winston Drive. Drawing
         5026518.911/55/A

  5.15   Location 5 – Footpath TK18

  5.16   There was an equal division between respondents preferring to go under the road
         via a culvert or subway and over via a footbridge.

  5.17   It is proposed to divert Footpath TK18 just north of Frisby Lodge following a new
         farm track to a new footbridge/accommodation bridge passing over the bypass
         On the eastern side of the bypass, the diverted footpath will follow the eastern
         boundary of the bypass before crossing the existing bridge across Hardwick Brook
         and linking with Footpath TM5. Drawing 5026518.911/56/A

  5.18   Location 6 – Hill Top Road

  5.19   There was little support for a Pegasus crossing on the old alignment of Hill Top
         Road south of the Hill Top Road roundabout.

  5.20   It is proposed to continue the desired movement of pedestrians and equestrians
         along the old alignment of Hill Top Road by the construction of a footbridge over
         the bypass. See Drawing 5026518.911/57/A




                                                                                         20
