STATEMENT OF REASONS
The section of A56 Chester Road, Frodsham advertised for the speed limit reduction spans from the existing speed limit change east of Godscroft Lane (40mph limit) to the existing 30mph speed limit 23 metres west of Mattys Lane junction. This section links Helsby and Frodsham and is a rural road with few accesses. Mixed local access/through traffic function. At present this section of the A56 has a 50mph speed limit.
The speed limit is being introduced as part of the A56 Chester Road Cycleway Improvement Scheme. The reduction will improve road safety on this route & encourage cyclists to utilise the upgraded facility. The proposal is supported by the Police, the Parish Councils and the local CWAC Members.
