The Parish Council would like to thank all those residents on Bye-Pass Road who took the time to fill in the recent questionnaire about speed limits. 42 were delivered on Feb 10th and 26 collected on Feb 17th. A further completed questionnaire has been completed since then. If you received a questionnaire but haven't yet completed it please do so and return it to the Clerk or a Parish Councillor.
An initial analysis of the data collected has indicted that many residents find the traffic a problem and that crossing the road causes difficulties. It also indicates the frequency that residents cross the road to access all village facilities and activities. A significant majority would like to see the speed limit along the whole stretch be reduced to 30 mph.
The survey has also indicated the number of young and older residents living on the north side of the road who may be classified as 'vulnerable' road users, the needs of whom may outweigh the more prosaic elements in the speed equation — number of junctions, width and number of bends — that are also factors in deciding speed limits. The number of accidents is also considered, but the Parish Council sincerely hopes that an alteration in this number does not occur and that changes can be made before a serious incident happens.
The Parish Council has been delighted to accept the help and advice of a local resident who is a Chartered Transport Planner. Once the results of the survey are fully analysed, he will assist the Parish Council make the best possible representation to Cheshire West and Chester Council to get the speed limits reduced and the position of the pedestrian refuges reviewed
