AS residents of Chapel Lane we totally agree with Clive Worswick of Bucklow Garage. The signage locally has been appalling and the time to get the work done far too long and drawn out.

Who is going to compensate local businesses for the loss caused by this?

Even the signs off the new bypass are very unhelpful with Knutsford not mentioned on the first northbound exit and neither Knutsford, Bucklow Hill nor Mere clearly indicated on the first southbound exit and the little far too sharp roundabout coming off that. Even Tatton is irregularly shown.

Instead a totally meaningless ‘local traffic’ is expected to explain all.

I think a local committee should be able to get together with highways and Cheshire East to debate this and get a satisfactory situation for all concerned, with the hope that once these roadworks are finally complete the locals and visitors to the area will find their way easily.
