Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3461655.
There is a safety related issue at the junction of Swanley Lane and Ravens Lane/Tally Ho Lane beside the layby near the windmill.
When approaching this junction from the direction of Monks Lane, the Give Way sign is not not easily seen as it has been partially toppled and is obscured by a tree branch (see attached photo). Upon reaching the junction itself, the view to the right (to check if there is traffic approaching from the direction of Cuckoo Lane) is obscured by a tree.
Not suggesting that a great deal can be done about the tree however the obscuration of the Give Way sign is a safety concern and even a few minutes observing traffic at this location shows a significant fraction of drivers not slowing down / pausing - and near misses are a common occurrence.
Given the proximity of this junction to the cross-roads of Cuckoo Lane / Ravens Lane / A41 Wrexham Road, which is an accident black-spot that is currently under consideration for safety related improvements, please consider addressing the above issues before an accident occurs.
Thank you for contacting Cheshire East Highways. We have logged your enquiry and passed it to a member of our team.
Our teams are working hard to manage and respond to reports from members of the public.
We are currently experiencing an increase in demand of reported issues along with a temporary reduction in available staff due to Covid-related sickness and self-isolation.
During this time and until the situation improves, we will be prioritising those issues that present most risk to the travelling public. While we normally aim to provide you with a response within 20 working days, response times for all other reported issues may take longer than usual.
Thank you for your patience.
