Bid to ease Chorley traffic
6:21pm Wednesday 4th September 2013 in Chorley
Traffic control measures are being introduced in parts of Chorley to help ease congestion.
The decision by Lancashire County Council to introduce double yellow lines in some areas of the town follows concerns raised by residents, businesses and county councillors that cars are causing congestion and safety problems.
‘No waiting at any time restrictions’ will be introduced at various locations including Village Way and Unity Place at Buckshaw Village, the access road to Botany Bay and Grange Drive, Euxton.
Limited waiting restrictions will also be introduced on Back Mount Street. These will be in place between 8am and 4pm. People will be able to park for up to an hour. ’Keep clear’ markings will also be added on Unity Place outside Trinity CofE Methodist Primary School.
Marcus Johnstone, Lancashire County Council’s cabinet member for the environment, planning and cultural services, said: “We’ve listened to local people and businesses and decided to introduce these new waiting restrictions across Chorley Borough.
“Traffic parked at these locations has blocked the roads and caused concerns for drivers and pedestrians who are trying to cross.
“There are still plenty of places to park, but these restrictions will help us to make Chorley’s roads much safer.”
