There have been complaints about the inconsiderate parking adjacent to the pedestrian island crossing point on A666 Manchester Road near M60 junction 16. Cars being parked adjacent to the crossing block the sightlines of the users hence making it hazardous. It has therefore been proposed to introduce a Traffic Regulation Order as ‘No Waiting At Any Time’ parking restrictions adjacent to the crossing opposite to St Annes Church on A666 Manchester Road.
Most of the people using this crossing are visiting the church and Clifton Primary School. It was decided to introduce a ‘No Waiting at Any Time’ restrictions, to protect the crossing and improve visibility both for pedestrians and vehicles.
The restrictions would improve visibility for pedestrians and vehicles at the crossing. It will also stop the cars parking close to the crossing. This will also assist in the general highway safety for all road users.
Further details of the proposals are set out in the accompanying documents and plan.
