Cheshire East has listened to calls for a rethink of its outdated Middlewood Way access points in Bollington and Macclesfield, taking action to remove discriminatory barriers.
In recent responses to road safety concerns about part of the Cheshire Cycleway, Cheshire East Highways states it “cannot engineer against motorists who choose to drive inappropriately” and that it “cannot prevent motorists choosing alternative routes.” Are these not two key tasks of a responsible local highways authority?
The Tour of Britain 2021 will include a stage taking in much of the gloriously hilly Peak District east of Macclesfield, including the Cat and Fiddle, Wildboarclough and Brickworks.
Middlewood Way is closed for four weeks just north of Bollington Viaduct as Cheshire East undertake resurfacing and improvement works to the trail, part of NCN Route 55, which runs from Marple to Macclesfield.
The first phase of Cheshire East’s Emergency Active Travel Fund allocation will go towards allowing cycling through town centre pedestrian zones along with restricting through traffic and adding 20mph limits speed to a handful of other roads.
