Road repair problems

FIRST, the roundabout near the old dispensary, and the triangle behind the church in Pontefract are a riot of beautiful coloured plants – congratulations!

However, after having a “do not park – road surfacing” notice along Swanhill Lane for more than six months, today we have road repairs being done (finally) but they are putting tar right across the road junctions of Swanhill, Carleton Glen and Carleton View, thus completely blocking access, as well as forbidden parking outside the two most busy shops in the area.

Wouldn’t it have been more sensible to close both roads – or even more sensible – do one half of the road and come back tomorrow and do the other half, thus allowing traffic to continue flowing?
