ANOTHER week of traffic congestion, another week of concerns about developments on Green Belt land and the possibility of a huge distribution centre on Green Belt land at Grappenhall close to the junction of the M6 near Lymm Truck Stop.
Add to this thousands of more cars on local roads due to vehicles avoiding the Mersey Gateway Toll Bridge and one wonders just how much more Warrington can take?
I have nothing against development in the right location and circumstances but I just do wonder how much more local roads can take? Yes there is the possibility of the new Western Link which could ease congestion on Bridgefoot – but in reality this is only likely to be a sticking plaster which will transport traffic issues over to the others side of town at Cromwell Avenue.
Those of you who know me know how passionate I am about my home town and I want Warrington to be successful and forward thinking.
But if Warrington Borough Council really are going to consider allowing another huge distribution centre on green belt land at the gateway to the town from the south in an area already blighted by traffic, litter and pollution, we really are on the brink of disaster!
If you have any doubts about the traffic congestion take a trip up to Lymm Truck Stop almost any lunch time or early evening during the week – it doesn’t make pleasant viewing or driving!
