Think about pedestrians

APPROXIMATELY 700 new houses are planned to be built in Featherstone.

What a good idea! Does that mean approximately 700 extra cars using Station Lane and the Wakefield to Pontefract road?

Maybe the highways department and the planning department at Wakefield Council might look at the traffic problem now on these roads and think about what impact these extra cars will have.

And don’t forget the impact on pedestrians, in particular school children who, at various locations, have to cross these roads.
