Published: 21st January 2019 12:06


Notice is hereby given that on 22nd January 2019 Cheshire West and Chester Borough Council made the following Traffic Regulation Order in accordance with the provisions of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 which will come into operation on 25th January 2019.

Delighted that sense has prevailed over this issue. However as the existing 20mph limit is widely disregarded along The Parade I suggest that the poplar Twenties Plenty signs are put up. Especially in the area of Nicholas Ice Cream shop and The Ship,the narrow stretch from The Little Tea House to Mostyn square and most definitely Coastguard Lane which is partly without a side walk. Will it happen or will a tragedy happen one day?

Update from CWAC: Reason as to why there is no current 20mph signs with the new zones.

(Unfortunately due to the cold weather we have had last week and the expected bad weather incoming this week, this has had an impact on day to day works, including the introduction of speed limits. The contractor operatives that would install the new speed limits are also our gritter drivers during the winter months. While gritting operations are in effect the operatives are required to have a certain amount of downtime during a 24 hour period. This does obviously have an impact on their working hours.

When planning the installation of new speed limits, preparation has to take place a couple of weeks prior, to ensure the legal order supporting the speed limit has been signed/sealed and advertised in the local paper accordingly. At the time of planning for the Parkgate speed limit there were no immediate indications that severe gritting runs would be required and would impact the installation. Unfortunately in this instance, due to the worsening weather this has been the case.

I can confirm that 20mph for Parkgate will be signed accordingly and correct at the earliest possible opportunity however it is not anticipated to be this week now due to the weather over the coming days. At this moment in time we are probably looking at early next week (W/B 4th February) for the installation of the speed limit, however this may change accordingly.)

Thank you for the update.

As much as I agree with this its unfortunately ineffective to many drivers. In other areas of Neston where the speed limit has been reduced to 20 its simply ignored.

You need to log in before you can do that! It's only a quick registration process to join the AMA network and completely free.
