LETTER: New entry/exit from M65 needed at Burnley

THE new gateway to Burnley looks impressive and probably long overdue (Express, February 18th).

But, surely, the powers that be could and should have realised the motorway junction at the bottom of the old Rectory Road only allows traffic into town from the east. There is a desperate need for an exit and entry facility at this junction for traffic to and from the west of town.

This would relieve traffic congestion from Gannow top, down Westgate and on Active Way.
