FURTHER changes are to be made to Grosvenor Bridge in Chester for road users.

The historic bridge and Grosvenor Road were altered earlier this year as part of Cheshire West and Chester Council implementing emergency active travel funding it had obtained from the Government.

New cycle lanes were painted on the roads leading to and from the bridge, with motorised traffic reduced from two lanes to one from Grosvenor Bridge to the traffic lights junction with Nuns Road.

The speed limit between the Castle Drive junction and the Overleigh Roundabout was also reduced from 30mph to 20mph.

However, there have been complaints about the traffic cylinders which have been put in place on Grosvenor Bridge, designed to alert drivers to 'share with care' the road with cyclists.

Many of the traffic cylinders have been removed from their mountings, scattering them to the surrounding area including the pavement, the nearby Dingle and even the River Dee.

Now Cheshire West and Chester Council is to remove the cylinders, and is planning to carry out the work on Monday, November 30.

It says it will carry out the work following consultation with Chester Cycling Campaign.

A council spokesperson said: "Due to issues with dislodged traffic cylinders on Grosvenor Bridge, the council has now consulted with the Chester Cycling Campaign and agreed to remove the cylinders on Monday night (November 30) and the existing cycle lane road markings will be extended across the bridge (weather permitting).

"This revised arrangement will continue to be monitored closely and in accordance with the adopted Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan, we will explore further medium and long-term substantive improvements to this area of the city, and crossings of the river in particular."
