WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH THE OLD A1?
ADDED 20 JULY 2006
anyone really know what is happening with the old A1 at Knottingley /
present roadworks on and around the old road are at best haphazard, and at
their worst a danger to all users. The traffic cones seem to have a mind
of their own, moving around indiscriminately, often under the cover of
darkness. Different signs appear daily, traffic lights sprout like daisies
and then disappear just as you get used to them.
new motorway is the best thing to happen to this area for years, relieving
the amount of traffic around our town, but the old road is a nightmare.
I've come to the conclusion that the highways department are using it as
some kind of test-track, where road workers can hone their skills before
being allowed out onto the open road.
anyone out there got any explanation to the discombobulation on what was
once the Great North Road?
