    Heard a loud rhythmic banging outsider Lidl earlier asked if it was connected to the new road work. Chap muttered something about a pikey with a mullet and some ginger bird's headboard.

    For a true Pikey a bit of ode timber found in a canal and dried out would do for a headboard. (Nuclear Hardened Bunker alert … :eek:)

    Having walked across Sainsburys today and seeing the current weather, combined with the river-to-path-level, I think their first priority will be watching site boundaries in the next couple of days!

    Stating the obvious here, but looks like the West Way will become a secondary M6 diversion route, and a much busier route to J13 generally? If not officially then certainly via Google Maps at least, nightmare.

    West Way will become two long cul de sacs , as will Tennyson and Sun Down

    Thus maintaining access to homes and schools but preventing heavy traffic from using the area as a bypass

    The dead ends will be located approximately midway along each of the roads

    Other traffic calming measures will be introduced

    These include:

    Inflation
    Oil price rises
    Fuel tax
    Insurance levvies


    For more information see me afterwards

    I will be in a slate coured suit , 4 sizes too small for me, a pair of hush puppies, and wearing a shiny bald head with the words " yes of course I'm listening " etched on the top

    Over the last ten years or so, I have say in numerous planning meetings or meetings dealing with longer term planning and I think it's quite common that the saying "We have to take an action to force an action" is used, laterally if not literally! A bit like enforcing parking plans on an area where people used to park lots of cars, before giving them somewhere else to park. They measure where traffic gets dispersed to. With this access route, it will provide some positives but the negatives will again have to be measured over a period. I can see Kingsway being the new bottleneck and West Way being the new Station Road! Clogged at lights and slow filtering. I'm sure the experts have looked at this already, though.
