Update on Blagreaves Lane End Rat-Running

July 6, 2018 12:34 PM

Many residents have been in touch with the Lib Dem Focus Team about the cars avoiding the traffic lights by driving over the shop frontages in both directions. A number of people have reported being nearly hit by such cars.

The Lib Dem Team reported this to the Council. Officers have recently been out on site at various times to see the problem first hand. They agree there is real danger for pedestrians. They recommend that a row of bollards is put near the pizza shop to stop cars cutting through.

Cllr Joe Naitta has shown the plans to the shop owners. Some of them like the plans, while others would prefer something less drastic.

Cllrs Joe Naitta and Ruth Skelton and Danielle Lind will continue working to find a solution that is acceptable.
