Council bosses agree to Bridge Foot changes
3:00pm Friday 28th September 2012 in News
NEW road markings will be put in place on Bridge Foot after the controversial changes brought misery to motorists.
The changes were made two weeks ago but have seen scores of complaints and drivers stuck in hour long queues.
Now senior councillors have made the decision to alter the markings again - following pressure from the Warrington Guardian.
A council spokesman said: “Senior elected members of Warrington Borough Council have reviewed the recent amendments to road markings on the Wilson Patten Street/Bridge Foot approach to the Bridge Foot roundabout with officers.
"Following this exercise the highways team will carry out immediate remedial works to rectify issues arising from the revised lining scheme.
"The amendments will result in the three lanes at the Wilson Patten Street/Bridgefoot entry having the following designations:
- Lane 1 (short lane near the Lower Bridge Street) - A49N (A57)
- Lane 2 Retail Park & A5061 (Knutsford Road)
- Lane 3 A49(S) Wilderspool Causeway & A5060 Chester Road These changes will be implemented as soon as possible.
"The council would like to take this opportunity to apologise for any confusion and inconvenience caused to the travelling public.
"Motorists are asked to be aware whilst familiarising themselves with the amended road layout.”
