A statement from Councillor Jill Houlbrook about the traffic on A41 reflects her concerns and that of many residents.
Jill says ‘I think it’s fair to say that there’s a huge groundswell of opinion against what is a white elephant of a cycle Lane on A41 from Upton to Hoole roundabout. I did point to CWaC officers, when it suddenly appeared almost overnight that it is dangerous and unnecessary. It came at the same time as the disputed bus lanes but I was told there was no connection and A41 was a different scheme and a different pot of money. Neither officers nor the portfolio holder seemed concerned or it appeared appreciated the environmental or safety or annoyance issues this caused. I sent photos of the queues through Upton. At the moment one of our residents is helping me to put together a dossier to present to the Council. The CEO of Chester Zoo has written to the CEO of CWaC to highlight his concerns too. So please do keep sending me evidence, photos, if you have them and feel free to email me your thoughts. Thank you.'
This is ongoing issue and Jill continues to fight for the concerns of Upton residents. You can contact Jill by emailing: Jill.email@example.com
