Have your say

Frustrated motorists will be pleased to learn that the £2.4 million road improvements now in progress at the Millhouse roundabout and causing a two/three mile detour will be rewarded by the knowledge that the old kerbing is being replaced by new and should enhance the traffic flow no end?

The same motorists might also ask why the entrance to Newcastle Avenue from the roundabout is blocked off over the long weekends when no work is taking place?

The said improvements appear to be mostly ‘cosmetic’ which will hardly result in improved traffic flow with or without traffic lights.
