‘Huge error’ in traffic flow report

Sandbach councillors will “chivvy Cheshire East up” over a traffic report that included a “huge error” which was used to inform planning decisions.
The VISSIM report was commissioned by Cheshire East to look at the outcomes of traffic analysis in 2016 at the request of residents.

The true figure is projected to be 19–21%.
