New restrictions to stop vehicles from parking dangerously

Cheshire East Council is proposing to introduce some Traffic Regulation Orders at Copperfields, Hill Top Avenue and Park Crescent in Wilmslow.

The proposed orders will prohibit waiting at any time around the junction of Manchester Road and Copperfields and the existing give way road markings will be refreshed.

Lines indicating no waiting at any time will also be installed at the junctions either end of Park Crescent with Twinnies Road.

Additionally, the existing give way road markings and double yellow lines will be refreshed at the junction of Hill Top Avenue and Manchester Road.

Simon Wallace, Senior Engineer at Cheshire East Highways, explained "The proposals have come following a public consultation meeting with residents and councillors for the area. A request to remove a number of dangerously parked vehicles was received and after reviewing the area with the Police, Cheshire East Highways have proposed to install the restrictions as shown on the plans."

Blue - Existing give way lines to be refreshed.

Red - Proposed new 'prohibition of waiting at any time'.

This is just the tip off the iceberg in Wilmslow with roads to the south if the town centre currently clogged by commuters' cars abandoned anywhere that there isn't yellow lines.
Will CEC get to grips with this problem in an overall way instead of piecemeal.

So this is the outcome of the meeting with Councillors on 15th Feb 2017? Did they actually listen to a word anyone said? On Manchester Road, the issue is with parking ON Manchester Road on the stretch between Hill Top Avenue and River Street and the speed at which some idiots drive up an down it. What is needed are some speed bumps and double yellow lines. What use is refreshing existing give way lines to anyone on this road?

The 88 bus was stuck for almost 20 minutes on Moor Lane, one morning last week, due to bad parking. Some days it is almost impossible to travel along Buckingham Road and Chapel Lane. Something must be done to relieve this.

I agree Howard, but this proposal to add six short lengths of yellow lines and maintain existing safety related markings has surfaced over eight weeks after a public consultation meeting attended by councillors and highways officers.

I cannot find any information on the Cheshire East website - so much for keeping taxpayers informed.

i agree with Marina's assessment that the point has been totally missed but in my view the major safety risk is with people trying to exit their drives on Manchester Road between Styal Road and opposite the entrance to Copperfields. Residents are unable to see the approaching traffic due to parked cars and a major accident will occur some day. The council has said however that there may be more announcements after 5th may
