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

I would think they would put barriers up, for that very reason and, to keep critters from the woods and flashes going on the carriageways, there are deers ,foxes, rappits, pheasants and Kevin , I can just see him taking a short cut over the road at 3 Am on his bike,

Very Happy

Good to watch but at a risk of being pedantic could we call the machines EXCAVATORS. Diggers are Tonka toys.

Latest Drone Video Smile



Looking at that video, I have a feeling that they are closing the towpath, in order to put a footbridge across the canal, so that Tom can cycle along that shared pathway they are building at the side of the new road, which I must admit looks like it is going to be very good Smile

Well it looks like he did the video when they were not working on the road, which is good, but by eck you can see that it is quite a complex construction project, so that they don't upset the fishes and the quack quacks on the flashes, and I DOO like the that pathway the are building next to the road Smile

Good video Tom A49 Link Road Wigan - Page 14 3530011831

They are also doing a lot of work on the carriageways at the side of Worsley Mesnes, and yesterday they were applying that Pitchmastic stuff on to the bridge over Smiffy Brook Smile Smile

thanks Sir Bob, I'm looking forward to them opening that path under that bridge, They should't be too far off that now,  its a good little 'cut through route for bikes, Mac can do from his house to Bargain Booze without touching a main road,  Basketball

I think that they will have it done for September, so that the job does not overrun the two year mark Smile
