First topic message reminder :

The Goose Green to Westwood Park Link Road, is due to start construction soon and I know that Tomplum is really looking forward to work on the new road starting and mac said in another topic that they have been pegging out for the road bridge over the stream, so this is a plan of the new road, which has been made by a company called Tekla Smile

That is something I have thought about, because has it stands, when that road projected to be completed, I will be in my 60's by then, so another delay, such has Corbyn being elected after the tory government falls, because they can't get the brexit legislation through parliament, then Corbyn cancels all infrastructure spending and gives the money to the poor and NHS instead, then bang goes me road No

I wonder if Donna's Police will go and get Mester Tom for that.

I think they may also have a thing or two to say about that speakeasy of his, which you can bet is lacking various licences for singing/dancing/nakky frolics etc.

Well the Bryn development thing was delayed for so long that I thought that the protesters had won and the thing there is that it has spoiled a very nice view over those fields from Rose Hill ....

I have said umpteen times that it is the builders and investors who drive the developments in areas and it comes down to demand and supply and the more the demand the higher the price for the product, hence higher the return for the investor and this was confirmed at that Worsley Mesnes regeneration event I went to a couple of weeks ago when the council fella explained how the council decide about which area to regenerate and what they do is to look at the property prices in the area, the higher the average price of properties, the more there is a demand for properties in those areas, it is an economic fact and in the Manse  Gardens development, those new properties were fetching £180,000 and that tells the investors and the council that there is a demand for properties there, hence the interest from builders to build there and the land is owned by the council, so that streamlines the process for development.

The reasons folk want to live around here and in Bryn are down to the location being near to the motorway, train stations, shops etc

In regards to the road, if it doesn't happen now, it never will happen, the thing seems to have had a jinx on it since it's inception, over 50 years ago.

Personally speaking though Tom I don't think it is going to matter to me, because I don't think I will be living or working around here, I will be elsewhere in the borough, that is the way I am thinking at the moment, but that might change Smile

You've said it before Sir Bob, the council is Almighty, if they decide its happening, it does, All these meetings with planning and residence are just paying 'lip service' . And it won't make a wee in the ocean's difference to the congestion,

Well I agree with you that the council is almighty and although they have these consultation meetings, they have already decided what they are going to do...

Work will begin next month building a bridge across one of Wigan’s busiest roads as part of a plan to make it far less busy in the future.

Creation of a major section of the A49 link road is now well under way, but it may have escaped some people’s attentions that where it traverses the notoriously snarled-up Poolstock Lane, there won’t be a bridge – but a fly-over.
