Police increase patrols over road concerns in Orford
3:50pm Friday 5th October 2012 in News
RESIDENTS in Orford met with councillors to discuss traffic concerns.
Cars cutting through Smith Drive and Withers Avenue continue to cause safety fears among homeowners.
An access only sign is ignored by drivers cutting through to the Birchwood Expressway.
Clr Kelly Simcock (LAB) and Clr Mike Hannon (LAB) held a meeting at the Orford Jubilee Hub on Monday.
They proposed creating new access and exit points to the estate, but the idea was rejected by more than 120 residents at the meeting.
Clr Simcock said: “This is still a huge and important issue for people who are concerned about their children and elderly people being injured.”
Cheshire Police has agreed to increase patrols in the area to enforce the access only rule until a solution is found.
