The leaves are falling from the trees, leaving bare branches for winter. Autumn is nearing its close. However, its still quite warm for our walk to school, and dry.
A light day for traffic this morning, which didn’t stop a couple of logjams from building up. A white van doing a 3 point turn just north of the school added to the mess. Happily, the bin lorry was notable by it’s absence. That’s two weeks in a row where the round has avoided Broad Lane at this busy time. Thank you Cheshire East. Thank you refuse crew, “every little helps”.
On the walk back from school, a parent described to me their near incident with the number 73 bus yesterday – involving kerb mounting and a close shave with them, on the path. Thankfully they were unharmed. Seems like, whenever things look to be getting calmer, a bus pops up to reinstate the chaos.
There was brief encounter with two farm vehicles waltzing through the traffic. Thankfully drop-off was drawing to a close. So, all in all a fairly good walk this morning.
Invasion of the Hi-Vis jackets
Several people contacted me yesterday about people in hi-vis jackets at the 3 junctions along Peter De Stapeleigh Way. Apparently Cheshire East were conducting a turn count survey at these junctions (counting the numbers and types of vehicles travelling along each route permutation). The last survey was done in 2003, I think. It’s about time there was a new data set captured, post Cronkinson Farm development.
Today’s scores out of 10:
