I refer to the petition, signed by local residents regarding Road Safety Concerns on the Nantwich Road.
Each county councillor has a Divisional Highway Programme (DHP) which provides the council with a platform to prioritise local highway issues that may not otherwise meet the intervention criteria, for further investigation. These priorities are reviewed twice a year.
County Councillor Ann Beech has requested for an investigation into the B5500, Nantwich Road to ascertain the feasibility of implementing a reduction in the speed limit. The concerns of the petitioners will therefore be considered formally as part of Councillor Beech’s DHP priority.
The Divisional Highway Programme supports the Council in providing a balance between the delivery of statutory duties and locally identified problems, within the finite resources available.
Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention.
