High Lane residents asked for views on Windlehurst Lane traffic calming measures

Consultation will close on Friday, February 12

Residents in High Lane are being asked for their views on the current traffic calming measures in place on Windlehurst Road in the village.

Following the opening of the A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road (A6MARR/A555) in October 2018 and the creation of a series of measures throughout High Lane, residents raised concerns with officers and councillors about traffic issues in the village.

In February 2020, the council carried out a series of consultation sessions with residents, where feedback received highlighted issues with the current traffic calming measures on Windlehurst Road.

These measures were installed in 2015, following feedback from residents in context of the predicted increase in traffic linked to the creation of the A555.

The council installed raised junction tables, road humps and speed cushions along Windlehurst Road in a bid to improve traffic flow and stop speeding vehicles.

The council would like residents’ views on the appropriateness of these traffic-calming measures on two sections of the road:

  • between the A6 (Buxton Road) and Andrew Lane; and
  • between Andrew Lane and Broadhurst’s Bridge (Macclesfield Canal)

It will not be possible to consider the removal of individual traffic calming features such as speed cushions or raised table junctions.

Instead, the council would like to know residents views on which of the above sections of the traffic-calming scheme should, in their entirety, either remain or be removed.

You can complete the survey online via our Consultation page. The deadline for contributions is Friday, February 12.
