Councillors Mark Williams and Stuart Parker have been listening to residents and their concerns about road safety.
Last year Mark and Stuart managed to see the installation of a traffic light crossing on the A41 so the journey to school was safer for Christleton High students.
Building upon this further, Mark and Stuart invited Police Crime Commissioner for Cheshire, John Dwyer, to highlight the need for speed calming measures and making our roads safer for all users.
John Dwyer commented:
“Making Cheshire’s roads safer is a priority in my Police and Crime Plan and this project delivers on that aim. I know residents have been waiting a while for these cameras and I’m pleased that this scheme will soon become reality.
“I’m grateful to Cllr Mark Williams and Cllr Stuart Parker who have repeatedly highlighted the concerns of their residents about speed along this stretch of road.”
“Average speed cameras work. That’s why I’m committed to working with Councils across Cheshire, including Town and Parish Councils, on a framework to make it as easy as possible for areas to benefit from similar schemes, where there is a local need.”
Cllr Mark Williams was buoyed by the potential benefits for the area, commenting:
‘Good to meet John Dwyer with Cllr Stuart Parker MBE to discuss the new average speed cameras on the A41 in the Christleton and Waverton area and other safety concerns including school walk routes.’
