On the eastbound and westbound approached to the Shavington Traffic Lights junction. This relates to poor signage on turning onto Stock Lane.

Reported via desktop in the Conditions of Signs category by Cllr Janet Clowes at 02:43, Saturday 23 July 2022

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3699824.

Stock Lane and all the way through to Wybunbury Village (to the A51 at the Boar’s Head) is covered by a 7.5t TRO to protect the narrow road through Main Road, Wybunbury, the Conservation area and the Primary School at the top of Bridge Street. Unfortunately there has been. Steady increase in HGV traffic using this route as a rat-run (they do not stop for access) which is causing significant congestion and risk for non-vehicle road users. On discussion with Highways safety officers at a recent members event, we have identified significant issues with the 7.5t TRO signage on Newcastle Road. The signage cannot be seen (when travelling west) as the hedge has grown over 15 feet in the past 12 years and is obscuring the signage. (It use to be a 6’hedge!). At the junction itself, a roundel faces Crewe Road but its angle means it cannot be seen by drivers approaching on the Newcastle Road. A second roundel sits on a small joint sign in the hedgerow some metres down Stock Lane. It would be hard for a driver to see this until he had committed to the turn. I have been asked to register these issues so that they can now be processed and addressed.
