Flashing Lights on Chester Road

No this is not an alien space ship making a random appearance.

Last week, some of you may have noticed contractors digging a trench across Chester Road near the Cemetery.

You will also notice that two posts with nothing currently attached to them have sprouted up.
It is intended that these posts will support two vehicle activated 30 mph speed restriction signs.

These signs have been matched funded by Cheshire West Council and Ward Councillor, Chris Whitehurst member's budget and are expected to be in place and operational in the next 2-3 weeks.

This initiative is in response to a traffic survey, which indicated that only 20% of the 4000 cars per day, using Chester Road were sticking to the speed limit.
The monitoring equipment even logged one vehicle coming into the village at over 66 mph.

Chester Road does not have the feel of a built up area, but we would urge all drivers to respect the speed limits when in the village confines.
