I have received the update below from Highways:
“Dear Councillor Anderson
I refer to your email in relation to the new road markings along the upper section of Pool Bank New Road on the approach to the Dyneley Arms junction.
I have visited the site now on numerous occasions and agree that some drivers do not appreciate that they can access the cycle lane if it is not being used by cyclist, which in turn is resulting in unnecessary delays.
It is therefore my intension to remove the section of cycle lane which extends up towards the signals to enable the previous driving practice to be reinstated.”
