Aughton – A traffic cone per year?

There’s been a broken gully grid in Formby Lane, just east of the junction with Clieves Hill Lane and outside of Broad Oak Farm, for as long as I can remember and it’s had a traffic cone placed by it to warn road users (particularly cyclists) of the hazard.

But I’m beginning to think that another traffic cone is added for each year the problem has existed as it’s now got 3 around it.

Time to raise the issue with Lancashire County Council me thinks before the traffic cone family expands further in 2021, 2022 etc. etc. 🙂

Update 08 02 20 – Two of the traffic cones have been removed

Update 04 03 20 – Back up to two traffic cones!

May 2020 – Grid finally repaired

    Its the same along Castle Lane and Sandy Lane in Westhead. They’ve been up so long they’re beginning to take root. Meanwhile new ones begin to spring up all around them.

    Needles to say, easy to blame the County Council for their shoddy response times etc, but with so little funding and so few resources…. I just find it incomprehensible that so many people in the County opted for 5 more years of the same type of governance by the same party….

    And then moan about the roads being in such a state!
