Wake up call for Broughton
The Press are reporting that two lanes are to be closed in York Place and traffic diverted through various streets.
The Council present this announcement as if at some point the work will finish, they will remove the diversion signs and all will return to normal.
In a sense they are right but the 'normal' will be the new normal, and the traffic will continue to divert even though the yellow signs are removed.
This is because the tram line cannot have traffic run upon it so those two lanes won't be returned to traffic use and the traffic, even more congested will continue to seek rat runs through the 2nd New Town in the streets listed in the story and more besides.
