Warning to drivers in Whaley

Police in Whaley Bridge are warning drivers who ignore access-only restrictions on local roads.

Residents on Old Road have raised safety concerns about motorists driving fast down the road and using it as a short cut to avoid the traffic lights at Horwich End.

PC Andy Crosthwaite of the Whaley Bridge Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “I would urge all motorists to respect this rule and the wishes of the local community.”

Police can issue motorists with a £30 on the spot fine if they are found to be breaching the restrictions.
