Mitchell Street changes

on Fri 11 Jan - 11:30
Workmen are just finishing reversing the direction of traffic in the streets near Alexandra Park bowling green.

All the signs have been changed and the road markings are being worked on.

You must now exit Mitchell Street near the car showrooms.

Is that the road that goes off at an angle, the one before Billinge Rd?

I'm going to do a report on this because, If you are coming out opposite  the car sales  plot and wanting to turn right, your vision of traffic to the right is poor, It sounds a dangerous blunder,

I'll be doing an investigation tomorrow,

I went through this morning and the new setup if far more safer than the old one.

Why did no one think of this sooner?

Mac, the camera is a samsung PL150 zoom, quite an old one but loads up good to movie maker,

Vixen, Manor Street is one way, you can drive on it from Victoria Ave but not from Mitchell Street,

confused, if you drove down Mitchell street before the changes, you could drive in a "u" out through Manor Street? So if Mitchell Street has been reversed, then it, Manor Street and Woolden Street have no access from Victoria Street.

Mitchell Street, Manor Street and Woolden Street have all changes so that the traffic runs in the opposite direction from last week.

Woolden st has access from Victoria, I cycled in that way and manor has as well, so you cannot U from Woolden to Manor, you have to go up Mitchell, That might be the whole point of it, I dunno,
