Further to our article on 25th July about the proposed improvements to the A51 Tarvin to Chester Road, the Cheshire West & Chester Council have announced two drop-in improvement engagement sessions as follows:-

On 3rd September the first drop-in community engagement session will be held at Chester Rugby Club, CH3 7DB from 10.45 to 16.45.

On 4th September a second drop-in community engagement session will be held at Stamford Bridge Inn conservatory, Barrow Lane, Ch3 7HN from 11.00 to 19.00.

Ed: What are reader's views on the proposed improvements?

Widening the road at Stamford Bridge will move the traffic queue nearer to Littleton until traffic volumes increase further as predicted. I doubt whether the scheme will reduce journey times. Allowing Bypass traffic to merge rather than give way to A54 Holme St. traffic at Tarvin roundabout may lead to longer delays leaving Tarvin High Street by car or bus particularly at peak times. However improved cycling routes are proposed as well as extra pedestrian crossing points but no change to bus services. Then add to the mix 6 months of disruption for vehicles and buses on this route during construction! It would be interesting to know by how much CWaC think that air quality near Tarvin will improve as a result of the scheme if it goes ahead in our Climate Emergency world.

From memory the scheme involved widening the road. Time/cost/environmental impact appears to be huge. I'm not around 3rd or 4th unfortunately but I would like to know if they considered just putting lights between Kelsall and Tarvin. ... that would surely just regulate the flow of traffic?

It would be great if it could include a safe cycle path.
