Revised proposal for West Street one-way system

Revised proposals for a one-way system on West Street have been published.

This project is being funded through the Wilmslow Area Highways Group, at a cost of £6,000 and is intended to address pedestrian and vehicle safety at the blind junction of South Street and West Street.

Councillor Craig Browne said "Cheshire East Highways will be launching a consultation on the proposals in the near future and I expect the scheme to be implemented before the end of the year.

"The proposals would also see the creation of a left-turn and right-turn lane from West Street onto London Road, to help self-enforce the one-way restriction."

I can see a potentially dangerous situation where left-turning drivers are edging forward onto London Road trying to see around cars waiting to turn right.

Someone needs to do some thinking about traffic flows. The only way to access the Post Office by car will be along George St and South Street. The problem is being caused by the parking of cars close to the chemist and on the pavement by Barclays ATM. It's a choice - keep the parking bay along West Street and turn South Street into a race track, lose the parking bay on West Street, or stick with the status quo. Is there a history of car crashes on this part of West Street - if not then let's stick with the status quo.

Well said to those who have commented on the waste of time this proposal is. Leave it as is I have yet to hear of any serious crash here.
