Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

The Olympic Route Network design was divided into sections and each was subjected to full safety audit procedures. These included: preliminary design stage 1; detailed design stage 2; and post-implementation stage 3. These are included in Appendix 4. Please note that one of the Stage 2 Safety Audits was for additional measures that were not implemented and is provided for completeness.

None of these road safety audits raised a specific concern or problem regarding the temporary removal of the Advanced Stop Line on the eastbound approach of Eastway at the junction with Ruckholt Road.
