NOTE WELL …….. STRONG WORDS FOR LIFE THREATENING DEMANDS
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
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
St Andrews Road South
St Andrews Road North
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)
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
