Chester Road/ Chestergate/King Edward St Junction

Reported via desktop in the Lining category by ceri jones at 12:02, Monday 24 April 2023

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 4479497.

I have just issued a Report on this, but failed to include another contributory factor to the danger at this junction, given that Chester Road into Chestergate is a Right Turn, NOT straight on. The road surface covering after the lights and in the centre of the junction curves towards Chestergate in a different colour to the rest of the surface giving drivers an almost subliminal 'message' that they have the Right of Way into Chestergate. There are no road markings ( as per my previous message) to persuade them otherwise. Local drivers will know about this junction no doubt, but 'out of towners' entering the Town from the West will not, therefore putting themselves and others at serious risk. How Insurers sort this out, in the absence of Road markings is an interesting question.
