Not far from us is the M67 motorway.

At the end of it, there is a traffic issue that blights local villages. It has been this way for many years. Almost 50 years in fact.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longdendale_Bypass

This is one of the main routes from Yorkshire to Manchester. Shorter than using the M62/M60 so all the trucks use it go go from Manchester to the M1.

We had a bypass approved (yet again) two years ago (Cameron earmarked 171m for ours) along with one in nearby Mere (George Osborne's constituency). Well, as lots of people with influence and a few quid live in Mere (not to mention the chancellor), work there started last year.  :-\

Where we live, the government wont give a start date (they have compulsorily purchased the land decades ago, and all the 'save the newt' people have been appeased), so there is a new petition on the parliament website to get the government to name the date that needs some signatures: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/123674

It needs 10k signatures for the government to give an official reply.

Anyone overseas who needs a a UK postcode to vote, do ask.  ;)

Sign it and help make them spend 171m so little kids can walk to school without face masks then. Otherwise they will only spend it on trans-gender outreach workers for homesick Romanians out on bail or something as daft......

93 99 now.

They only approved the petition today. Almost 100 is good for a day. It has time yet.  ;)

Apparently, some local business has paid for some banners to go up on the road where the traffic queues are.  :whist11:

Apparently, some local business has asked their mates on the local radio station to mention it on air, tweet the link, etc.  :whist11:
