Woodshutts Street to go one way?
I am writing to consult you on some ideas and suggestions that have been put forward by many local people. There have been complaints for many years about the increased flow of traffic along Woodshutt’s Street. The traffic problems are also affecting the residents of Woodlands Avenue and Pickwick place.
Woodshutt’s Street has become extremely narrow in recent years due to the increase of parked cars along the Road. This is no fault of the residents because it’s not practical to ask people to park their vehicles somewhere else but we do need to find a solution.
One suggestion that has been raised on a regular basis is the possibility of making access to Woodshutt’s Street one way via Congleton Road. The reason for this is to stop people using Woodshutt’s Street to avoid the traffic lights on Cedar Avenue. Putting this measure in place would also avoid any collisions that could be caused by traffic travelling at high speeds along the narrow part of Woodshutt’s Street located between the terraced properties.
Another suggestion has been to close off the end of Woodshutt’s Street where it joins onto Congleton Road to stop traffic entering or exiting altogether.
I have raised this matter with our County Council in the past but my concerns have not been taken up. Therefore with your help I might have a better chance of getting Staffordshire County Council Highways department to look at our case more closely.
A leaflet will be distributed soon and I am hoping we get lots of responses. If you have any ideas please comment on this post and leave your feedback.
