I WANT to agree wholeheartedly with your correspondent last week who wrote about Bridge Foot (Warrington Guardian, June 3).

Getting rid of that lane heading towards town past the Academy makes no sense.

In pre-Covid times and indeed even now at rush hour or a busy Saturday, has anybody from the council driven down there?

Because if they did, they should get ready to queue up.

And the problem will only be intensified by this decision.

I can’t understand why the lane has been shut.

And why if Covid is the reason, has it not been repeated elsewhere?

Seeing that the work appears to be permanent, I won’t hold my breath that anything will change any time soon.

We will all be sat in the traffic long enough to try to work out how this decision came to be.
