Stockport council installs misleading Cheadle road sign

Stockport council installs misleading Cheadle road sign

A new street sign was recently installed on Cheadle’s Grange Park Road, but the council’s work, rather than being greeted with approval, caused confusion for delivery drivers and dismay amongst residents due to its wording, which read “Grange Park Avenue”.

According to locals, the incorrect sign had the potential to cause even greater puzzlement for visitors due to the fact that there is already a street named Grange Park Avenue leading off Grange Park Road. Not only that, but the new and wrongly worded sign was placed opposite another sign bearing the correct street name, which would have further baffled anyone new to the area.

A representative for Stockport Council, Megan Black, said that the blunder came about as the result of an incorrect label on a hand-drawn map. This led to contractors installing the wrong sign. She pointed out that the mistake had been corrected as soon as the council had been informed and said that they were “reviewing procedures” with respect to the installation of street signs.

Although members of the public do not normally order street signs, it is common to order printed items of different kinds either for domestic or commercial use. To avoid errors, it makes sense to approach a professional and reputable print company in Cheadle, particularly for services such as stationery printing, where it is vital that every detail is correct.
