Public meeting to discuss A34 issues re-scheduled


A public meeting announced last month to discuss speeding and anti-social behaviour on the A34 in Wilmslow and Alderley Edge has been re-scheduled.

Having received lots of correspondence from local residents about the issues the community faces, Police and Crime Commissioner John Dwyer has announced a new date for his public meeting following the Wilmslow Dean Row by-election.

The meeting will now be held on Thursday 23rd September from 6.30pm to 8pm at Wilmslow Parish Hall, Cliff Road, Wilmslow, SK9 4AA.

The meeting will include representatives from Cheshire Constabulary, Cheshire East Council's Highways Department and local elected representatives.

John Dwyer said: "I want to thank the local community for their patience, whilst we waited for the by-election to take place. This is an important issue and I want to make sure we address residents' concerns. A number of residents have highlighted the speeding and anti-social behaviour that is taking place on the A34 between Wilmslow and Alderley Edge. Nobody should have to live with the types of issues the residents are describing and some are concerned that the behaviour will eventually lead to an accident or worse.

"I'm conscious that numbers at the meeting will be limited as we want to ensure everyone feels comfortable as the UK continues to emerge from the Coronavirus pandemic, but I'd urge you, if you can't attend the meeting and want to get something off your chest, then please get in touch with me and share your views. The more information and questions I can put to the panel at the meeting, the better the outcome."

I'm amazed! 48 hours or more since this article was published and no comments yet. Should I assume that everybody from Alderley Edge is still away for the weekend in Abersoch?

I hope that the question of noise will be brought up in relation to the number of vehicles parading through the village at weekends with obviously tampered with exhausts rattling out every time they accelerate. They are obviously in breach of MOT regulations in addition to standard noise levels. This applies to both cars and motorbikes. Surely, any attending police present can take the registration number and check later, calling the vehicle in for inspection.

A very good point raised by Roy with regards to inspecting modified vehicles. And lets hope Stuart that everybody who is annoyed at the antics of drivers has not loss interest and has already reserved a place at the A34 public meeting (I have) to inform Cheshire Police and Mr Dwyer that everybody is become very annoyed with what is going on!

Anything that stops the “ boy” racers going through the gears along the new AE by-pass has got my vote ! These race machines at full chat must be travelling well in excess of 130 mph .Sunday morning is the worst time. Speed cameras on the bridge at Welsh Row?
