Council to start enforcement of moving traffic offences

Cheshire West and Chester Council will begin enforcement of moving traffic offences at four locations from 20 May, to reduce dangerous manoeuvres, congestion and disruption on the road network.

The powers enable the Council to enforce moving traffic offences such as making prohibited left- or right-hand turns and accessing no entry roads with a view to reducing dangerous manoeuvres, congestion and disruption on the borough’s roads.

Enforcement of existing restrictions using ANPR cameras will be at the following locations: Chester: Nuns Road/New Crane Street junction (no right turn into Nuns Road, Monday to Friday between 4.30pm and 6pm); and anytime at the Nuns Road/Grosvenor Road junction (must turn left into Grosvenor Road; the Canal Street/Northgate Street junction (no right turn into Northgate Street, except buses) and Ellesmere Port: Civic Way (no entry except buses).

Initially, the Council will undertake a six-month awareness raising period and issue warning notices to vehicle owners whose vehicle is observed contravening the restriction by approved automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology.

Penalty Charged Notices (PCNs) will, however, be issued to the vehicle owner for a repeat offence within the first six months and for a first (or subsequent) offence at the end of the six-month warning period.
