The Traffic Management (Guidance on Intervention Criteria) (Wales) Order 2007

Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally made). This item of legislation is currently only available in its original format.

CRITERION No.1 (Section 17 duties)

49.  In applying this criterion, the Welsh Ministers will address the following questions.

(a)Has the authority considered what arrangements might be appropriate for—

(i)planning the action to be taken in performing the duty under section 16 of the Act; and

(ii)carrying out that action;

and where considered appropriate has it made such arrangements? (See section 17(1)).

(b)Do the arrangements include provision for the appointment of a traffic manager? (See section 17(2)).

(c)Do the arrangements include provision for establishing processes for ensuring, so far as may be reasonably practicable, that the authority—

(i)identify things which are causing road congestion on its road network, or other disruption to the movement of traffic on that network;

(ii)identify things (including future occurrences) which have the potential to cause road congestion on its road network, or other disruption to the movement of traffic on that network; and

(iii)consider any possible action that could be taken in response to, or in anticipation of, anything so identified? (See section 17(4)).

In addressing this question the Welsh Ministers will not expect to see provision for establishing processes for the consideration or identification of anything appearing to have only an insignificant effect (or potential effect) on the movement of traffic on the authority’s road network.

(d)Do the arrangements include provision for ensuring that the authority—

(i)determines specific policies or objectives in relation to different roads or different classes of road in its road network;

(ii)monitors the effectiveness of its organisation and decision-making processes and the implementation of its decisions; and

(iii)assesses its performance in managing its road network? (See section 17(5)).

(e)Has the authority kept under review the effectiveness of these arrangements? (See section 17(6)).
