A SPEED review has been carried on a 60mph village road.
The review, requested by Ince Parish Council, involved a 350m length of Pool Lane between its junction with Oil Sites Road and the 30mph speed limit near Ince Village Hall.
The road, which is unlit, is subject to the national speed limit, traffic engineers told Ellesmere Port and Neston highways and transportation committee.
Their report pointed out that Pool Lane is the main road linking Ince village with the industrial areas on Oil Sites Road and the A5117.
The village can also be reached from the A5117 through Elton but a weight restriction prohibits vehicles weighing more than 7.5 tonnes from entering Elton through to Ince.
Engineers said the outcome of the review suggested the 60mph speed limit should not be changed as the average speed of traffic was recorded as 28mph although traffic conditions would continue to be monitored.
This had been discussed with the parish council.
To help manage vehicle speeds in Ince village, they proposed that vehicle activated signs should be provided at locations to be agreed with the council.
Replacement 30mph speed limit signs, together with carriageway markings, are to be provided at the entry to the 30mph speed limit near the village hall.
Additional ‘SLOW’ markings are also proposed near the bend on Pool Lane in the 60mph zone.
The report was noted by county and borough councillors.
