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

the trouble is, If a council employee says good morning to me, I'll put my PJ's on and go to bed, you can't trust a word they say,,,
No

Well they have spent enough time and money on the flamin project over the years, starting about 13 years ago they altered the Chapel Lane end of Poolstock, diverting the River Douglas, building big bridges over the canal and building Westwood Park and the roads at that end of where the new road will emerge, it must have took them three years to do all that and that was part of the Westwood Link Road and I was recently arguing with someone, who said that the work was done, solely to open up Westwood Park and it had nothing to do with the link road.

Well I took this photo in June 2006 and they had already been on with that project for about two years then and look what it says on the notice board.

It says "Westwood Link"

And then there is the roundabout at the Goose Green end and the blocking off of Little Lane, mind you that was paid for and done by the builders of the new housing development there.

I made the unfortunate decision the other day to travel down Poolstock Lane to the Marus Bridge junction and it was jammed all the way back towards Carr Lane in the middle of the day, it is a lot quicker to use Warrington Road now, but that is of no comfort to Tomplum, but if they built the bloody road, then Poolstock Lane would be sorted out then, with hardly any traffic on it and Tomplum would be happy sunny

No he not be happy, because tomplum makes a lot of journeys to Wigan for materials, Now its ten minutes if there's no roadworks, Poolstock Lane's always has been the best road into wigan, up till they messed up Marus bridge it was the best and fastest way out too,
When the new road is built I will have a ' round the world in eighty days' trip instead of a ten minute run,

So no i won't be happy and niether will thousand of other motorists,  No

If new road is built I don't think Poolstock Lane is going to be blocked off, it might have a few speed bumps and be a 20mph limit like main road through Marsh Green is, but you will still be able to use it ...

I thought that Galliford Try had been awarded the contract to build the new road, but maybe the tender they put in was time limited, because the contract to build the new road as been advertised again with a construction start date of 20th October 2027 and for the road to have been completed by the 28th June 2039

It's too small a job for them to take on, as they might end up doing it for nothing if they don't complete in time.

They were drilling on the proposed route yesterday, the embankment where the railway line crossed Poolstock Lane, where the bridge abutments stood.
