Roadworks to be finished next month - 'weather permitting'

Warrington Guardian: Traders protested earlier this month Traders protested earlier this month

ROADWORKS hitting trade in the centre of Culcheth are ‘on target’ to be completed next month.

Traders say they have seen a sharp drop in sales since the work started on the bridge at Wilton Lane in October.

They say a long diversion route and a complete closure of the road is putting off potential shoppers, especially from Lowton and Golborne, from coming to the village.

This week, council bosses say the work will be finshed by December 14, ‘weather permitting’.

They have said though that a full closure will stay in place.

This road has been closed for weeks, yet there has been no actual work taking place.

Here's an idea WBC, instead of disrupting traffic and residents for weeks ahead of work being done (see Winwick Road for the same thing) why not place the closures, barriers or cones out when the work is going to take place, not weeks before.

After the earthquake and Tsunami in Japan it took 3 days to rebuild their motorway system. In New York, after Superstorm Sandy, they relaid 74 roads in 24 hours. In Culcheth, its taken over 5 weeks to restrengthen a bridge.

Speaks volumes.
