Re-routing of HGVs in Holmes Chapel

Holmes Chapel to start HGV re-routing scheme on Friday 15 August 2014. This scheme covers two pinch points, opposite St.Luke’s Church and the A50 end of Macclesfield Road.

Signs will direct HGV’s round the village, avoiding the centre (London Road ) and avoiding Macclesfield Road, in a westerly direction, from Manor Lane onwards.

This experimental scheme will have a consultation open for the first 6 months and will be advertised by Cheshire East and Holmes Chapel on their web sites and on posters around  the village.   Comments can be made on the CEC website from 15th August with a public meeting near the end of the first 6 months.

Speed Indicator Devices (SID’s) are already in position to compare and contrast data prior to and after the re-routing experiment period.  CEC say they can react quickly to situations, if there are recurring problems.

The scheme includes anything over 7.5 tonnes but exemptions include agricultural vehicles and wide loads, as well as access vehicles.  As SatNavs won’t include the updated routes HGVs may not be aware of the changes.
