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

Yes?

Poolstock forks here. One lane bends to the left and is signed "Poolstock" AFTER the junction, beyond the traffic lights, as you cross the river.
The other lane goes straight on. Here, you are stopped on Poolstock, as if to go straight across the junction into Westwood Road.  You are looking across the junction.
If you look to your left of Westwood Road entrance,  you see the traffic lights on Chapel Lane and the right bend into Poolstock.  That's where Poolstock starts. If you look to your right of Westwood Road, you'll see Westwood Way, joining Poolstock.

Westwood Road is off Poolstock, not off Chapel Lane.  Westwood Way is turn right off Poolstock.

foe once I agree with you....

Daft ............

You are trying to apply the road layout, pre 2006,, to the road layout as it is now, but the roads were {{ALTERED}} and the relative names of the roads to each other were also altered, because they 'had' to be altered, because sections of the old road layout disappeared and new sections of road, appeared where before there had been no roads.
Maybe in years gone by, the boundaries necessitated that roads had to be on one side of the River Douglas or the other side, but not both, that didn't apply post 2006, so the boundaries of the roads were placed, in a logical manner, hence all the roads starting and ending at the junction in question .....

which means it will be...........

It means it will be a political decision, has well as a planning decision, and both are going to be important, in that Boris knows that at the next General Election he has to keep the support in traditional Labour voting Northern areas to keep his large majority, because that support was given to the Tories, because of Brexit, but that won't be the case at the next General Election, and the Tories seem to have lost a lot of support in London to the left wing loonies, those loonies bolstered, because of the mass immigration into London, and those immigrants are Labour supporting, because they see Labour as the party which will give them the most in benefits, so it is the likes of Leigh which gave Boris his majority, but I can't see Leigh voting Tory again, but if he wants to keep the rump of the new Tory support in the North, he will have to spend some money on them, and a new motorway would be a good way to doo that, because the objectors and trouble makers who would oppose such a scheme, would be left wing loonies, who support the Labour Party ....

So the other thing is which route would it take ?

What doo yoo think Vixen, what is your opinion, because you are a professional lady who drives, what would be your choice for transport, would it be public transport or private transport (car) which route would the road and roads take ?

If you are right, it means that Poolstock going into Wigan, ends at a different point to which Chapel Lane ends going out of Wigan ....

Actually, according to the council's drawings and road signs, it must do!

Traditionally,  Poolstock changed to Chapel Lane as it crossed the river.   Going into Wigan centre, along Poolstock,  it changes to Chapel Lane at the river.
Coming away from Wigan, along Chapel Lane, it changes at the traffic lights just before the left turn into Westwood Road.

But, really, it should be the other way round, as the river runs diagonally under the road there.

It could be due to the warehouses, now accessed off Westwood Road, having Chapel Lane addresses.
Arthur Bithell's is in the old brewery that's always been on Westwood Road.

I have had a look at the {{Poolstock}} end of it today, and they have not even fitted all the traffic lights yet, and the road doesn't look finished, so how can it be being handed over to the council on Wednesday ....

So what the hell is Cadfael on about ?

His wife has been on Facebook saying the same thing, that the road will be opening on Thursday, so they both must have been smookin wacky backy .....

Well they haven't finished the footpath, the section leading from Poolstock Lane at the bridge towards the canal, fbecause it wasn't tarmaced a couple of days ago, and yesterday as I said the {{{POOLSTOCK}}} end wasn't finished, and then there is all the legal stuff to be done, because the road will have to be laid down in law as a public highway, and it will become, a new 'A' road, a new route, a change of route to the A49
And then the council will have to officially announce the opening date and time for legal reasons, because from that date and time all road traffic laws will apply on there .....
