Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3852530.
Council ref: 3777874 I have just received notification from you that the problem referenced with the above number which was the lack of 'cycling prohibited' signs on this footpath (Public Right of Way Congleton FP27) has now been resolved. I have seen the new sign at the Swan Bank end footway, but there is still no sign at the Priesty Fields end. I believe that a cyclist approaching from that end will therefore see no reason why they should dismount, and will proceed on the basis that they can cycle on his footway. Please install a sign at this end. It would also be appropriate for there to be fingerposts placed at both ends of the path, with the green PRoW footpath symbol on them. At the moment I do not feel that the signage is sufficient to meet the requirements of the new HIghway Code regulating users conduct so as to give pedestrians protection from cyclists/motorists putting them at risk.
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.
