Resident calls for Review of Safety on Tarvin Highways

Holme St Crash

No doubt Tarvin residents will be aware of the serious crash on the A51 on Tuesday of 3 vehicles which resulted in 11 casualities and two youngsters being airlifted to hospital.
This incident appeared on the BBC North West's evening news and online at the Chester Chronicle and Tarvinonline!

Our article provoked a number of public comments via our Facebook page regarding the delays, however, an email from Anne Wallace (below), new to Tarvin, raised other concerns regarding a review of traffic calming measures.

Anne Wallace said "I have recently moved to Tarvin and although I like the village and the people I have met, I am most concerned about the traffic on the A51 and A54, particularly the roundabout which appears to be a free for all.

I think that traffic lights would make the road safer. Following the dreadful accident on Wednesday when 12 people were injured and the road was closed for hours I do believe that there needs to be an urgent review, some kind of traffic calming measure needs to be put in place before someone is killed."

Anne then goes on to mention that "As it happens, my son was on the A51 last week and a chap on a motorbike went skidding past him (sans motorbike), the biker had been overtaking stationary traffic and a car driver opened his door, knocking the man off his bike!"

Ed: "Do you agree with Anne's suggestion? If you do then why not drop an email to editor@tarvinonline and we will forward all the comments to Tarvin Parish Council and to our Borough Councillors and see if we, the village residents, can get Highways to take our concerns onboard and provide solutions to the problem"
