Silk Road Speed Reduction

We the undersigned petition the council to Reduce the speed limit along the A523 Silk Road to 50mph, along its entire length between its junction with Hibel Road, Macclesfield and it’s junction with Flash Lane, Bollington. In addition, to erect automatic speed enforcement devices along this stretch of road, such as Gatso or SPECS average speed cameras.

1) This stretch of road apparently has the second highest collision rate in Cheshire East.
2) The environmental impact caused by the sound of vehicles accelerating harshly down The Silk Road is becoming worse. This is affecting the quality of life of residents living near to The Silk Road.
3) The road is crossed by large numbers of children near to The Silk Retail Park. A vehicle recently lost control and collided with the barriers protecting the pedestrian crossing at this location. Fortunately it was very early in the morning. However, had this been at a busy time, the consequences could have been fatal.

This ePetition ran from 18/04/2019 to 30/06/2019 and has now finished.
