Traffic confusion

Highcroft Tallentire

09

February 2023
Temporary sign

When entering Tallentire from the south, traffic needs to circulate round the one way system. a few metres before reaching the one way system, is the entry to Highcroft Close. Many drivers who do not know the area mistake this turning for the start of the one way system. GPS users may also be confused by the advanced request to turn left. Small vehicles can easily find their way out, but an HGV will probably struggle.

The image below shows a recent result.
