fourteen meadows road
Started by: spudmagoo (1149) Report abuse
Can anyone tell me what Wigan Scouncil is doing blocking off a public right of way by concrete blocks that impedes passage by pedestrians? Is this yet another example of the scousecils disregard for public rights of way. Explain.

According to the Council website, Fourteen Meadows Road is closed because of an 'Unsafe Structure' that sounds like a bit of that Eckersley Mill is threatening to collapse into the road

So spudmagoo if yoo was 'walking' past that 'Unsafe Structure' on Fourteen Meadows Road and it collapsed on to yoo and deaded yoo

You would be pretty well peeved about it wouldn't you

So maybe it is just possible that Wigan Council, don't want folk walking past that 'Unsafe Structure' because they don't want any harm to befall such people

I ride down there on my bike.

So they can walk right up to where the wall is unsafe from either side of the obstruction and still get squashed

If it was about safety no one would be allowed anywhere near
