cletus Posted May 24, 2009 Share Posted May 24, 2009 Has anybody seen the 'new' bus lane on Preston Old Road (along the front of Witton Park) ?? Here`s how i see it..... 1....It must`ve cost a good few thousand pounds to put in, with all the re-marking of lines & altering of pedestrian crossings etc.... 2....It`s only about 300yds long & doesn`t incorporate any major junctions. 3....There`s only about 4 buses an hour go along that road (chorley, Preston & Fenny buses??) 4....It could only be used to it`s potential during rush hour, which there is only two 'peak' traffic periods per day......& the evening 'peak' period has the majority of traffic going the opposite way (out of town) thus leaving the new bus lane redundant for 23hrs a day, every day of the week. 5....They`ve needlessly narrowed a main into/out of town artery. So in my calculations, they`ve spent a stupid amount of money on getting 4 buses a day 300yds further down the road, a few seconds quicker. Is it really really worth all that expenditure of taxpayers money.....or is it just a case of "we`ve got all this money, let`s spend it before they take it back off us!" A total waste of money.
