increased traffic flow, poor driver behavior, (speeding), damage to verges, and an accident but no one was hurt.
They are not doing any work on these lanes which they have closed. It is the council who have ordered the closures.
Thanks for reply,
Possible misunderstanding here though. The three country lanes they have closed are only because of resident pressure to perceived increase traffic flow whilst the major route is closed, the councillor being one of those residents. There is no work to be done on these lanes, but it is likely that the lanes would suffer if the lanes were reopened.
The 6 month estimated time is the time for the major route to be reopened.
As an agricultural contractor, I, along with many others use these lanes as arterial routes, not as diversions, and the continued closure is seriously affecting my and other peoples business.
However, bearing in mind what you have already said, I find it difficult to understand how the Council fulfill the 'need' criteria.
I hope I have explained myself sufficiently well.
