Speed indicator devices help slow down traffic


Cllr Peter Holmes

ADDITIONAL speed indicator devices installed in Culcheth have helped reduce the speed of traffic travelling through the village.
This was revealed in a report on the last 12 months by Cllr Peter Holmes, chairman of Culcheth and Glazebury Parish Council.
He said the devices – on Warrington Road and Common Lane – had gathered data showing a significant drop in speed when entering the villages which should improve road safety in the area.
“Whilst some people continue to speed, they have been successful in reducing the number of speeding vehicles.”
Cllr Holmes said the parish council was particularly proud that, aided by the borough councillors, they had been able to reach an agreement to level and implement a drainage system on Culcheth village green, where excess water would now able to be taken away through United Utilities pipes.
“This took significant discussion and negotiations with the borough council and United Utilities but we are glad that this has been signed off, and that the preparatory stages have commenced.”
The second stage would hopefully begin in May.
“This is a major development and has involved significant investment, but it should hopefully allow villagers the opportunity to use the Green more often.”
Councillors had been involved in fighting the proposed closure of Culcheth Library, and the Friends of Culcheth Library group had now been formed and were taking the lead in securing its future. “Whilst nothing is ever guaranteed, we are now very confident that the library will remain, and recommend that all residents visit the library and make use of the building, not just for borrowing books, but also for the classes which have been set up, which include a variety of subjects.
“We also recommend that you become a member of the Friends of Culcheth Library and help retain the library for future generations.”
In Glazebury, additional Christmas lights are to be provided and extended over future years.
Cllr Holmes’ last act as chairman of the parish council will be to open Community Day on May 7.
