Would this not be a good opportunity to get rid of the traffic lights and have a roundabout at the junction. At least people tend to stop and look at round abouts and the traffic does keep a steady flow where at the moment the traffic lights are more of a hazard with people trying to beat the red light it would be interesting to know how many accidents have occured there over the past few years

What a refreshing change!

Did anyone notice a perfectly good conversation has just been had, BRILL.

A roundabout sound fine, I just donít know about peak times. The one comparison was the old roundabout in front of the Oriental at Pontefract. My opinion was that it worked well and the lights frigged it up.
The traffic lights will need attention which leads to my big concern. The proposed plan does bugar all to help. Donít forget the 380 homes that have now grown to 400 and I am sure will increase before Girnhill is rebuilt.

The road from Girnhill Lane would need to be widened. If 2 cars or a bus is turning right towards Pontefract, nothing can get past. More and more these days the traffic backs up past the club, and that's before a supermarket.

What if some cars could be encouraged to go out by the fire station, surely that would lighten the load on the lights, and don't forget, a lot of people will be going to the supermarket on foot Grin

I am informed that the Lidle planning application has been pulled again from This Thursdayís meeting. It would appear that the implications of incorrectly passing a planning application have been enforced by WMDC highways by making it clear what a mess WMDC would end up in by railroading the plan without any alteration from the one all ready turned down. My opinion is it is a good thing as the land almost ended up in a grid lock in the egerness to build anything. Now at least a short delay will address the only issue, access.

I was privileged to be asked to comment on the revised plans for the Kwik save site. This makes a welcome change that a developer cares. The area looks like it will be getting the face lift it needs. The plans will be submitted very shortly. The biggest problem has been land issues that take slow legal time to alter.
The Gas works site looks set to also move forward as plans are being prepared. The word appears to have spread as Calendar news arrived today in Featherstone for the story. Check out GM TV and Calendar news tomorrow. Quite a few locals have had a say on what they think.
As if by fate/ chance whilst filming to incidents occurred. Two business men arrived on the gas works site working for Lidle with a revised plan. Sorry to say from what I saw the junction corner has still only been half tackled. The second was that station lane became gridlocked on a normal day. The gridlock is on camera, lets hope the report is listened to. Grin

Some one called Karren Keer has written 4 times on face book this same statement,

"people in featherstone need to make here mind up mr yates has been telling the people of featherstone netto has put a new application in for the old gas workes whats happed to lidl".

Why does anyone need to make their minds up, i thought everyone wonts a supermarket? Is it wrong to ask whats going on, dont think so. the rest of the facts are all ready written here.

I have been looking on the WMDC website at the planning documents for both stores and fail to see the problems with regards to highways on the plans for Lidl    Huh

I am no expert but as far as i can see Lidl offers 2 entrances/exits for customers, 1 on wakefield road and 1 on girnhill lane. They also offer a seperate entrance/exit for HGV's. Whereas Netto plans offer just 1 entrance/exit for all vehicles  Huh

Am I reading the plans incorrectly or have i missed something?Huh?
