Appeal for Google to rectify map mistake
1:50pm Thursday 22nd September 2011 in Glazebury
AN appeal for a mistake on Google maps to be changed has been recognised by the internet search engine’s head office in California.
Residents of Hawthorne Avenue and Heyshoot Lane, Glazebury, have had a series of mix-ups with delivery drivers, repair men and takeaway orders after the two roads were labelled the wrong way round.
Chris Vobe, from Warrington North Labour party, said: “Residents spoke to me about this issue in the summer.
“At first, they thought that very little could be done and that it was just a very inconvenient mistake but I took the matter up with Google’s UK offices.”
After highlighting the problem with Google, the case has been referred to its headquarters in Mountain View, California.
Chris added: “I’ve always pledged to ensure that Culcheth and Glazebury are on the map so I hope that Google bosses will put this right as soon as possible.”
