O\T roadworks/ temporary traffic lights

Post by gandhisflipflop » Wed Dec 07, 2022 9:32 am

If you’re anything like me then you’ll be becoming increasing annoyed/frustrated at the amount of roadworks there are at the moment and temporary lights popping up out of nowhere. I’ve never known so many. Does anyone know what is going on and why there are so many?

I thought it would be useful to post updates to this thread so that people can make alternative routes if necessary.

Roadworks on Burnley road in Padiham just outside the schools.

Roadworks on accy road just past the rose grove unity causing delays.

There were just setting up temporary lights further along heading towards Hapton just before Agra restaurant.

The ones at Padiham are a nightmare. It’s bad enough at school mother time, with all the SUVs and 4x4s as the mums drop off their little darling after driving from 2 streets away, but the addition of these lights make Padiham utterly impassable

I'm assuming some new law was issued that requires even the most minor of works to have temporary lights in place.

Whoever hires these things out must be coining it in.

There is/was a set at the junction of Gannow Lane/Sycamore Avenue, the 2 lights weren't more than 20yrds apart and could be “self managed” easily enough

What do you all suggest they do, ignore the gas, water and electricity supplies that need repairing or just not have lights and endanger the people working on these projects. Who would want to work on a road unprotected with a load of old giffers driving around in their Volvo's between moaning on a FOOTBALL FORUM.

It’s the amount of roadworks that is about. You seriously telling me that there is an issue with all these gas supplies at the same time?

And if you’d bothered to read the full post, aside from asking why there are so many it serves as information to people at where there all are, so people aren’t unexpectedly stuck/late for work.

They have a right to work on the roads just as you have a right to drive on the roads.
