TWO HGVs have had to turn around on Nantwich Road before the aqueduct over the last two days after getting stuck.

Nantwich Road had to be temporarily closed today because of the problem.

Cllr Mike Hunter believes that the quality and positioning of the low bridge signs is not enough to stop the problem.

Cllr Hunter said: “One of the main issues is that the sign is placed after Newton Bank, where these vehicles will already be on Nantwich Road.

“The truck drivers assume that there will be an escape route for them before the bridge but there is not.

“As soon as they are on Nantwich Road there are no suitable places to turn.
