work started today near the shops on Poolstock, They are blocking off the 'rat run ' streets for the wise guy drivers who use their knowledge to bypass the congestions, The taxi drivers will be pleased at that, hey Sir Bob, ?

It reminds me very much of the scheme in Westhoughton Town Centre, two raised areas, and a one way at a time traffic light at one end, and very slow three way traffic lights at the other end, so although Market Street in Howfen is not blocked off, it is much easier to use Quickytuss Way instead Smile

I had a walk down to that to see what was causing the tailbacks and, no work going on, ? mystery, The was a courier there and as he was delivering a parcel, a van knocked him down, He was't badly hurt and i did't see exactly what happened but it made things worse for a short time,
This road alteration is good because at night when the roads are quiet, the high powered cars scream up Poolstock lane at breakneck speed, its only a matter of time before one loses control and causes carnage at somepoint,

once the works are done the white elephant will be busy with traffic and Poolstock Lane will be quiet. They will probably migrate to the A49 at that point.....

yes, that is why its took so long for them to work on Poolstock lane, no one wants to go all round the flashes and do 3 miles to get one mile, they have tried altering the traffic lights at Both ends of Poolstock lane , so now its a case of "VE VILL MAKE ZEM GO ON ZE NEW ROAD" Very Happy

Higgways are incompetents, have been for years. Plan a road without forethought carry out the plans then go back two or three times more to repair their screw ups.
