Traffic congestion in the Prestwich area has seemed pretty bad recently, probably due to the roadworks through the village, and people finding ways to avoid them.
Two more sets of roadworks start soon. We have already asked the Council’s Director to reconsider what can be done here, and why ALL THREE sets of roadworks have to happen at the same time. No reply yet…
