Erection of Safety Bollard Welcomed

Willaston and Rope Ward Councillor Brian Silvester has welcomed the erection of a safety bollard in Willaston.
He said, "In Cheerbrook Road, Willaston, towards the Nantwich end of the road, there is a cycle path. The path actually comes off the end of Old Newcastle Road. Cars, delivery vans and even cars with trailers use this path instead of the road junction to come out onto Cheerbrook Rd.  Not only is it illegal it poses a safety hazard to people walking and cycling in the area not aware that a vehicle is using the path as a short cut. I was asked by a concerned resident if it would be possible to have a concrete bollard put at the end of the path. I am pleased that the Cheshire East Council has now erected the bollard. It will help prevent possible accidents in the future by stopping the improper use of the cycle path by vehicles."
