Traffic congestion into Chester solved?

At last our Parish Council have had one of their ideas possibly adopted by CWAC after years of fruitless suggestions. The traffic snarl up going into Chester along the A51 will be avoided by using both sides of the road on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. This is to be a one month trial. Traffic from Chester will have to take the longer route out via Mickle Trafford.

Red and green traffic signs (stop and go for those who usually ignore them) will be used to remind motorists which day of the week it is and will be provided by the EU as part of the Brexit negotiations. However a counter proposal to use red and blue signs on these days and white signs on the other days has been rejected by the European parliament.

It was said that the scheme was almost certain to meet with CWAC's approval, despite voices of protest coming from some quarters. One of the protestors included a spokesman for "keep Tarvin safe" who reportedly warned that "Many drivers already have trouble telling their left from their right in our village" Also, a resident of Oscroft was quoted as saying, "Villagers use this road to make shopping trips to Chester. On some days this will be a fast journey over the five miles, and on others a journey of perhaps 15 miles. The scheme is lunatic and what I expect from the Council."

Personally I thought our Council was being imaginative and expect to see the proposal if successful to be included in the forthcoming Neighbourhood Plan.
The plan starts today April 1st.
