By Parish Council - 3rd February 2015 10:57am
The Parish Council, discussed the results of the traffic CCTV survey of the Cross Lane canal bridge.
The bridge was monitored on three consecutive days from Thursday, 30th October, to Saturday, 1st November 2014.
Within that period, there were 5 recorded instances of 'aggressive approach', where vehicles didn't slow down, or caused another vehicle to alter its course.
Based on these findings, the Parish Council resolved not to pursue the proposal to install traffic lights on the bridge.
There was some surprising information which came out of the statistics, though... on average, 6000 vehicles, passed over the canal bridge, each weekday, either coming in, or going out of Church Minshull in a 12 hour period.
This was between the hours of 7:00am and 7:00pm and approx 4000 vehicles, in the same 12 hour period, on the Saturday...!
For the full report, see the attached document.
