Timing of roadworks in Burnley defies all logic

Share this article

Some bureaucrat in County Hall must have it in for motorists in Burnley.

Why? Because he, or she, decreed “major road works resulting in long delays” began on the Gannow roundabout for two weeks from Monday – the very same day most schools re-opened after the Easter break. My drive into work was actually a real pleasure with no school traffic. That is all about to change, and how. Traffic volumes will return to their normal stress-inducing volumes, regardless of major roadworks. So why, oh why, has some idiot waited until the schools go back to impart mayhem on the busiest early-morning road junction in Burnley? It defies all logic!
