St Paul’s Methodist Church – traffic diversion route – update 9 March 19


Due to the inconvenience the temporary waiting restrictions are creating for residents who live on the diversion route, a meeting has taken place with the Transport Managers at the Distribution Centres to see if alternative routes can be used through the centre of Shaw, in an evening period, when traffic flows have reduced.

The distribution centres have advised that an instruction has been given to their drivers to use a combination of Eastway, High Street and Westway from 8pm in the evening until 8am,  In view of this the legal order for the waiting restrictions along Beal Lane, Grains Road, Hillside Avenue and Buckstones Road is being amended to reflect the changes so residents can park near to their homes from 8pm – 8am.

Arrangements are being made to have the signs changed, which will hopefully be completed by Monday (11th March).  When the new signs appear , if you need the use of the highway to park you can do so between the hours of 8pm – 8 am.

Due to the use of Westway and Eastway in the evening period it will be necessary to prevent parking from 8pm – 8am along Westway ( High Street to Farrow Street East) and prohibit waiting at any time along the full length of Eastway.
