09 Make Albany Road, Gillingham a one way street 19 February 2019 When looking at where alterations to the road network should be made, the Council must consider Medway as a whole, taking into account highway priorities such as reducing and preventing road casualties and ensuring value for money. Available resources must be directed to those projects which are in line with objectives and priorities for transport within Medway. Following investigative work to consider the cost and associated benefits of altering Albany Road to one-way operation, there is no funding available to make such change. At the meeting of the Regeneration Culture and Environment Overview and Scrutiny Committee on 28 March 2019, the Committee noted that the possible provision of passing places in Albany Road will be placed on the 2019/20 parking programme for consideration as a matter of priority.
