Back on the 3rd of August I sent in a Reader's Letter and a photo, showing dangerous parking opposite the Coach and Four and asked if a cyclist had to die, or be seriously injured, before action was taken.
This kicked off quite a storm of opinions, on Facebook and elsewhere and prompted a piece on this website: https://bit.ly/2yaTr5t. As far as I can tell, since then, nothing tangible has happened on the ground.
Yesterday I walked to Wilmslow station and back and took a couple of photos as I was passing (I didn't wait for these to happen, they were just as a walked there, tractor photo, and back, truck photo, from the station.
I repeat my question; will a cyclist have to die, or be seriously injured before action is taken?
The black car (in both photos) was at the end of a line of parked cars - how can this not be considered an obstruction?
It has been suggested that, as a temporary fix, Cheshire East Council could simply put some no-parking cones out, while they get their act together with surveys, or whatever. How difficult could that be?
The third photo was taken a few days ago and shows what happens when cones are put out - the problem immediately goes away; these four cones have been put in place by the management of the Chapelwood deveopment, because their residents cannot see clearly enough to make a safe exit onto Alderley Road. Simple, no? Too simple for Cheshire East Council, apparently.
