'Concern of the Week' - Speeding

Articles which we have posted concerning overgrown hedges obstructing Tattenhall pavements, flytipping and ongoing problems of litter in our community, not only capture your imagination but have prompted many of you to suggest that we trial a 'Concern of the Week/Month' column.

Tattenhall Online is a community website and we welcome community engagement.

So, to kickstart a possible 'Concern of the Week/Month' column, we raise the issue of 'speeding' within the village.

This member of the Webteam is particularly mindful of this since she lives at the exact point of the eastern gateway into the village and at which point are located the 30mph speed limit signs.

Not only are the 30mph signs completely bleached by the sun and sometimes obscured by overgrown trees and hedgerows, but many drivers continue to ignore, or have scant regard for, the signage. What results are drivers speeding well above 30mph into the core of the village.

In my experience, therefore, many drivers simply ignore the designated speed as they enter the built form of the village, whilst other drivers accelerate in an unprecedented fashion up Burwardsley Road.

Areas in and around Tattenhall are frequently used by runners, cyclists, horse-riders and pedestrians.
We surely support a responsible and safety-conscious approach to driving.

Do contact us if you consider there are issues which you wish to raise on Tattenhall Online and whether you think there is mileage in a 'Concern of the Week/Month' column.
