Kerb Dropped to Assist Wheeelchair Users


Willaston and Rope Ward Councillor Brian Silvester has welcomed a safety improvement in Rope.

He said, "A constituent, Victoria Perez, who is a wheelchair user contacted me. She said that as she  comes up Bankfield Avenue there is no  dropped kerb where it meets Rope Lane and she has to go onto the road to progress, which is obviously unsatisfactory and unsafe. I asked for a dropped kerb to be introduced and I am pleased that Cheshire East Council has agreed to  make the improvement."  See below.

Victoria said," I am very grateful to Councillor Silvester for his speedy action and to the  Cheshire East Council who are going to do this for me.

I would also like people to be aware that there are some disabled people in Cheshire East that like to  live independently and to do as much as anyone else. Everywhere should be accessible to everyone, including disabled residents.

My moto is 'If I cannot do it or get into somewhere, an old person or a mother with a pushchair can't do it.'

When It comes to dropped kerbs it is a safety issue for a disabled person."
