Motorists under spotlight along Moss Lane, Crewe


Motorists travelling along Moss Lane in Crewe are under the spotlight as Cheshire East Council collects evidence to monitor speeds in the area.

Councillor Michael Jones, ward member for Bunbury, said: “There have been on-going discussions with Minshull Vernon and District Parish Council since January and together we are assessing this matter very seriously.

“There are never any quick fixes for issues such as this, especially where there is an increased risk of accidents and we must be sure what the causes are.

“But I want to be very clear about this – should the evidence show that measures to slow down traffic will provide a solution then these will be considered along with other options.

“These could include changes to the speed limit, improved signs and localised traffic and calming features as well as a part one-way system. Speeding is not acceptable.”

Ward member for Leighton, Councillor Derek Bebbington, added: “Through listening to our residents in the area, we are aware of this problem and we take these matters very seriously.

“The highways team is currently monitoring the situation and will be installing traffic counters that will collect speeds and the number of vehicles travelling along the road. 

“This will allow us to review the information collected and take steps to slow down traffic should that be identified as the problem.”

Councillor Rod Menlove, Cabinet member with responsibility for environmental services, said: “I would urge motorists to think twice before putting their foot down in the Moss Lane area as this is clearly causing a great deal of concern for residents.

“If speeding is the problem then we will be robust in our response and we will take the necessary action to promote a safer stretch of road.”
