Bus Stop sign at 267 Hurdsfield Road, Macclesfield, obscured by vegetation.

Reported via desktop in the Conditions of Signs category anonymously at 21:13, Tuesday 16 August 2022

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3759476.

The Bus Stop sign at 267 Hurdsfield Road is almost completely obscured by tree and shrub vegetation at the front garden border. No doubt the bus drivers know where it is, but the vegetation needs cutting back so that all other traffic is aware of it. The metal post for the sign is close to the waste bin shown in the photograph, but barely visible. Note the car parked partly on the pavement which together with the front garden foliage reduces the available width for pedestrians.

  • 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.

  • The vegetation in the immediate area around the bus stop sign has been cleared, so that the sign is visible when you are alongside it on the pavement. But the sign cannot be seen as you approach it from the Rainow direction as you travel into Macclesfield, because the vegetation overhanging the pavement higher up the road has not yet been cleared. Refer to the FixMyStreet report about "Pavement in front of 255-275 Hurdsfield Road, Macclesfield" raised on 16 August 2022.
