Transport issues will be a key consideration for the Planning Committee when considering Laver’s proposals for Moneystone Quarry. All traffic will need to use either Whiston Eaves Lane, Blakeley Lane or Carr Bank. All three are narrow, winding country roads generating safety concerns. Poor visibility issues on tight bends, combined with the narrowness of the carriageway and absence of footpaths, present particular hazards.
To assist those members of the Planning Committee, who are not familiar with Moneystone Quarry, the following photographs showing the nature of Whiston Eaves Lane, Blakeley Lane and Carr Bank are made available to assist Councillors’ understanding of the reality of the considerable transport issues.
