Letter: Roadworks madness
2:42pm Friday 20th July 2012 in Opinion
Is there anyone in charge of scheduling of when and where roadworks take place?
Who in their right minds would sanction the widening of the bridge at the end of Greenbank Terrace/Lower Eccleshill Road, at the same time as allowing the replacement of the gas mains on the A666 between Lynwood and Hollins Grove, with both sets of roadworks having traffic light control?
These are two heavily used routes between Blackburn and Darwen. The ensuing queues at rush hour are absolutely horrendous and Lord knows how many people are now late for work who use their cars or the local bus service.
This scheduling is absolutely ridiculous, as neither of these are five- minute jobs but major undertakings.
Someone’s head should roll for such sheer incompetence.
