LETTER: Road changes will lead to traffic gridlock in Padiham

EVEN before this giant and unwanted store has been opened in Padiham, work is in hand to further restrict the flow of traffic through the town.

I refer to the narrowing of the road and construction of an island on the bridge. This has considerably shortened the middle lane for traffic waiting to turn right into Green Lane, which will cause traffic travelling towards Burnley to come to a standstill. The mini roundabout will become blocked, resulting in a grid-lock through the town. Well done planners. Any more bright ideas?
