Residents urged to give their views on link road traffic management measures

Residents are being urged to give their views on proposed traffic management measures for the construction of the Congleton Link Road.

Drawings of the proposals will go on public display at two Cheshire East Council drop-in sessions to be held soon. A number of measures are proposed in order to encourage motorists to keep within the speed limit on Padgbury Lane and the immediate area.


The suggested traffic engineering initiatives – which are a planning requirement – are intended to take account of the abnormal load route through Padgbury Lane and the access points for nearby housing developments.


The suggested proposals include:

·         Removable bollards to close the slip road from A34 to Padgbury Lane;

·         Mini roundabouts at three side road junctions;

·         Chicanes;

·         Dropped kerbs to benefit pedestrians and cyclists; and

·         Additional signage, lines and resurfacing as necessary.

Members of the public can make comments until midnight on 27 October by completing the online feedback form available on the Cheshire East Council website:



The drop-in events will be held at the Quinta Primary School, Ullswater Road on:

Saturday 28 September – between 10am and 2pm; and

Monday 7 October, between 6.30pm and 8.30pm.


Councillor Brian Roberts, Cheshire East Council cabinet member for highways and waste, said: “I would like to urge all residents likely to be affected by these proposed works to come along to these sessions and give their feedback.


“It is important that we hear local views and I would ask that people make sure they also give their feedback via the online form.


“I wish to thank residents for the patience and understanding they have shown to date, whilst we have been constructing the link road, which is a vitally important project for Congleton.”
