Local Community Speedwatch volunteers were joined by Councillor Craig Browne on Congleton Road on Thursday, 7th June.

On this occasion they recorded 31 speeding vehicles over the space of an hour, from 10.30 to 11.30am.

Councillor Craig Browne said "This is fewer than on the previous occasion at this location, although still too many."

In total 18 vehicles were travelling between 36 and 39 mph; 12 vehicles were speeding between 40 and 49 mph and one vehicle was speeding at 50 mph.

Councillor Craig Browne said "The speed limit in this location is 30 mph and we will use the data as part of our evidence base to support traffic calming measures in Alderley Edge. If anyone is able to volunteer an hour a month of their time to help us run more sessions, please email me."

He added "I would like to take this opportunity to highlight that Community Speedwatch is a nationwide initiative, backed by the police. Whilst offending motorists receive a letter, or a police visit (for a second or subsequent offence), the team are there primarily to raise awareness of speed as an issue."
