WHATEVER they do at Town End junction I don’t expect much will change.
Has anyone else noticed how few commercial vehicles use it now? Since it’s a guaranteed delay, few want to risk waiting around for any time they could be earning in. Using Hardwick Road Post Office a lot now I’ve noticed that a lot of the queue is composed of cars from Ackworth. Also that many of them turn left into Wakefield Road. Where are you people going? If you are going to Purston or Featherstone you’d be quicker going along Purston Lane – the little ‘hidden’ lane just by Ackworth church.
If Wakefield I’d advise taking the A638 from Ackworth roundabout, no traffic lights until Black Lane just outside Wakefield.
