Keep on moving…
Approaching school, three lorries coming through in quick succession created a snarl-up along Broad Lane.
They squeezed through the gap left by parked cars, then encountered oncoming traffic that didn’t seem to realise that there’s nowhere for them to go, that they’re part of the log jam.
Take a look at this video, you’ll see what I mean:
In the news
The situation we face on a daily basis is getting more media attention. BBC Radio Stoke interviewed me this morning about the chaos. It’s a shame the reporter couldn’t join us during our walk, it would have been fantastic to have their account of the situation. At least I could show them photos of this morning, describe what the road is like and walk with them past the bottlenecks. Other radio stations are interested in what we’re doing too…
New – Pothole Cam
Since Monday, a pothole is growing opposite the Old School House. It’s getting bigger every day, now throwing debris up onto the footpath. I’ve reported it to Cheshire East, using their online reporting system, so it should be repaired before too long…
