Mount Pleaseant - Bramhall Lane Junction

The new fence on Willard St is lovely, problem is it now makes this junction almost a blind corner. Anything coming at speed is a accident waiting to happen. Bonkers planning if it's SMBC, bonkers if it's a planning application that they approved.

Do you have to have planning consent for a fence? I'm not sure especially when there was one previously!

Does look to block a fair amount of the view from on coming traffic thought I must admit!

Another thing that popped into my mind. I think Willard St is unadopted, are the planing rules different?

Yes, looked at it this afternoon. Thanks for the alert cos something dozey at 07:00 in the morning is going to happen.

That said and I only drive by, the resident might consider pushing for is:

Make Mount pleasant junction with Bramhall Moor Lane and entry only. With no entry signs at the very end at BML. So Mount pleasant remains drivable as a 2 way direction.

Then on Grenville Road create a traffic light junction incorporating the pedestrian crossing and the exit from Stepping Hill Hospital.

That would then sort out the exiting from Mt.Pleasant and sort out the silliness at Grenville Road junction with Stepping Hill and safe guard the pedestrians and near car accidents and shoving through BML traffic that goes on.

there was the remains of a fence already there so don't think any permission needed but saying that it is an accident waiting to happen.

I think I've spotted why there is a new fence.

The road line is about to changed. There are markings on the pavement suggesting the kerb on that side is being moved closer to the grassed area & the couple of houses located there.

Its marked in browny pink paint dashes.

I think you will find the part of the fence has been taken down leaving a clear view for all.

The fence recently erected replaces one damaged by utility workers some years ago. Beneficial to the two residential properties. You are right the road line is due to be altered very soon and that may enhance vision. With no access to Asda now less traffic but still a poor jct to exit.

Why is the road line due to be altered Former Willard.

Can't understand why now they decide to make these changes, why not when all the huge ASDA vehicles were constantly getting stuck tryng to get around the corner.

I'm sure I read a headline somewhere yesterday stating that the streets of Hazel Grove are to change, but I seached online and couldn't find anymore on the story.

What changes are being planned, anyone know???

Its needs to be widen because it will allow traffic to divide better to go onto the A6 turning left. At the moment, the left turning traffic is driving on the pavement to get by traffic wanting to turn right because the traffic light sequencing is staggered and the left filter light remains on green longer. They will widen, then shift the 3 lanes over by the fence, towards the fence about half a car's width.

What I don't think it will address is the stupid drivers who want to access the second outside lane to the A6 stop line when there is a queue past Mt. Pleasant junction.

Traffic is regularly confronted when turning into BML from the A6, by drivers driving into the oncoming traffic from the A6 on the wrong side of the road to get to the right lane at the traffic stop line.
