PUT THE POLITICIANS ON THE MINIMUM WAGE AND WATCH HOW FAST THINGS CHANGE
Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction
When the Forces for War are Greater than the Forces for Peace   Then the World is in Danger
Politics is not a Dirty Word. It is a Way of Life. How is Your Way of Life Today ?

COUNTY DURHAM COUNCIL TRAFFIC SAFETY AND TRAFFIC CALMING SCHEMES

NOTE WELL …….. STRONG WORDS FOR LIFE THREATENING DEMANDS
 
The Radical 
5th August 2018
 
THE A688 BISHOP AUCKLAND BY- PASS
 
A DE- RESTRICTED 60MPH SINGLE LANE HIGHWAY
 
AND WITH “STREET LIGHTING”
 
From the roundabout at the junction with the A689 and B6282 South Church
 
to
 
The Roundabout at Sainsburys
 
ONLY An IDIOT  AT THE COUNCIL APPROVED THAT ONE
 
I am all in favour of keeping traffic moving,

 
but at 60mph on this straight very busy section is ABSURD

 
Cars speeding at 60 mph quite legally on this stretch of road are interrupted by

 
the following traffic from side roads entering and leaving this busy highway. 
 

And not only that but at all these road junctions traffic can cross the flow of

 
60mph traffic 
 

St Andrews Road South
 
St Andrews Road North
 
Dovecot Hill
 
Fourways Roundabout at Watling Road/ Aldi junction – 
 
Where the traffic can negotiate the roundabout at 40mph
 
ACCESS and EGRESS at the Shopping Centre ( CARPETS AND POUNDS)
 
Green Lane
 
Fourways A6072 Roundabout with Dilks Lane
 
IT IS SHEER MADNESS THAT  CARS ENTERING OR SLOWING DOWN TO LEAVE

 
THE A688 at any one of these side roads where speed restrictions apply should

 
be harassed by cars travelling at the EXCESSIVE SPEED OF UP TO 60mph.
 
Cars travelling at say 40 mph intending to turn at junctions 
 

are “pushed nose to tail”.
 
It encourages ROAD RAGE and WORSE ! 
 
FATAL ACCIDENTS WAITING TO HAPPEN
 
AND WHO WILL HAVE BLOOD ON THEIR HANDS ?
 
DURHAM COUNTY COUNCIL
 
WILL THE EMPLOYEES WHO AGREED TO THIS MOMENT OF MADNESS ON

 
THIS STRETCH OF THE A688 RESIGN OR RIDE A MOPED OR MOTORIZED

 
CYCLE UP AND DOWN THIS ROAD UNTIL DEATH DO US PART.
 

THE A688 DE- RESTRICTED SPEED LIMIT ON THIS VERY BUSY STRETCH

 
SHOULD BE REDUCED TO 50MPH AT THE VERY LEAST,

 
OR EVEN 40MPH IN LINE WITH ADJOINING ROADS

 
AND THAT WOULD TIE IN WITH “MERLING STOSS”

 
AT THE ROUNDABOUT JUNCTIONS
 
 

FRIENDS – WE ALL KNOW THE REAL ISSUE 
 
THE SHORT ARSED, SHORT SIGHTED DECISION TO MAKE IT SINGLE LANE

 
CARRIAGEWAY IN THE FIRST PLACE WHEN DUAL CARRIAGEWAY IS THE

 
CHEAPER IN THE LONG RUN AND OBVIOUS CHOICE 
 

TO MEET FUTURE NEEDS THEN AND NOW.
 
 
TAKE THE A1 FROM JUNCTION THROUGH COUNTY DURHAM AND TO

 
NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE,

 
 PART IS STILL NOT MOTORWAY STANDARD AND TOO MUCH IS

 
ONLY TWO LANE DUAL CARRIAGEWAY.
 

THE SECTION FROM THE DURHAM 62 JUNCTION  TO BIRTLEY JUNCTION 65 IS

 
A SOWS EAR and JUNCTION 65 TO THE A19 NORTH OF NEWCASTLE IS A

 
NATIONAL DISGRACE, CONTINUALLY GRIDLOCKED.
 

TWO LANES WHEN IT PROBABLY SHOULD BE FOUR LANES

 
WITH MAJOR ROAD JUNCTIONS —

 
A692 and A184 and INTERMEDIATE JUNCTIONS TO THE A69 and A696
 
AND DON’T TELL ME ITS ABOUT MONEY AND POLITICS
 
LABOUR UNDER BLIAR AND PRESCOTT APPROVED MANY MOTORWAYS – 
 
THE M62 M18 and M180 to HULL AND GRIMSBY ……..
 
TORY NORTH YORKSHIRE’S  A1M, THREE LANES AT SCOTCH CORNER –

 
WETHERBY, CAN DO IT AND THERE IS A MISERLY COUNCIL

 
IF EVER YOU MET ONE

 
GET YOUR FINGER OUT DURHAM COUNTY COUNCIL 
 
AND MAKE THE EXCESSIVE COUNCIL TAX YOU CHARGE, VALUE FOR MONEY
