Ian Whitehead from Cheshire East Highways department has informed the Parish Council, that he has attended the village to assess the effects of the recent traffic calming works.
CE intend to install a centre line hazard marking from the junction with Village Farm, around the bend and towards the direction of the Nantwich buildout.
In addition, to this they will be installing a 30mph roundel to try and keep the speed of vehicles leaving the village down.
They will also be installing a second bollard on the long buildout of the Weaver bridge and some hatch markings to keep vehicles away from the bridge parapet wall.
The Street Lighting department will look at the inoperative VAS (Vehicle Activated Sign) warning system, situated opposite Village Farm to get it working again and/or possibly relocate it to somewhere more effective.
A new initiative of installing temporary traffic lights on the canal bridge, will be trialled on Monday 17th Feb 2014 and will be kept in place for a minimum of 13 weeks.
