Town Bridge traffic lights

Reported via desktop in the Permanent Traffic Lights category anonymously at 13:15, Saturday 30 July 2022

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3718167.

Lighting sequences on Town Bridge traffic lights has been changed within the past few weeks. This is causing increased congestion on all nearby roads.

Due to increased waiting times/traffic this is having a direct impact on response times for Middlewich Fire Station to turnout to emergency incidents due to On Call Firefighters being stuck in traffic while attempting to access the Fire Station on Civic Way. On Call firefighters responding to the fire station for an emergency call have an urgent response time but are not exempt from road traffic laws so have to wait within the queuing traffic which delays the fire engines emergency response.

  • 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.
