Agree Dianne turning right on the bend on York Road is very hiffy[B) You sit waiting to turn right and a few times I have had the alarm on the front bumper go off has cars pass going round the bend going to Princess Rd. Once onto the car park cars that are trying to leave cut across cars coming round to get onto the main part of the car parkThere will be a bump soon either on York Rd or on the car park

Donít ever drive through central Manchester at 8am of a morning Peter.

You wonít stop complaining about it for a fortnight!

in order for Peter to drive through Manchester at 8am, He would have to set out from his home at 6.30am at the latest, then crawl all the way down the M62 at an average speed of 20 mph, or take the east lancs route and crawl along there with the ' stop start' approach through the uncountable sets of lights before hitting the one lane in to the city centre, Then negotiate further lights, one way systems, bus lanes, no entry zones and tram lines,

Please tell me sledge, It was't you who reduced the incoming traffic to Manchester at Salford to one single lane on the A6, that is really tekingthepiss, because that was an act of an hard of thinking traffic planner,

The reason the lane going into Manchester, was cut down from three to one (the right hand lane) was done by Salford Council, because they said that folk were just driving past Salford and into Manchester and as a result Salford was not getting any money from these people, they were spending their money in Manchester, instead of in Salford and it wasn't fair and they thought that the road arrangement was the reason why, because they said it encouraged people to bypass Salford, so they wanted to encourage motorists to travel into Salford, by cutting down the lane into Manchester, into just the one lane ...

Sounds daft that doesn't it, but it is true, now personally I feel that the road planners in the 1960's and 70's who planned and built the Salford Crescent Road, were doing folk a kindness by speeding them through Salford, because Salford is a shithole, although I must admit that Salford Quays is now a nice area, but I remember that area when it was still working as the docks and it was in decline and it was really grim around there ...

Wow......did someone press your buttons Tom?.....again?

Posted by: tomplum (4702)  Report abuse
So there you go, Only hard of thinking planners would try to force people to shop in a sh1t hole rather go the extra mile to a wonderful City centre, I've worked in places round salford doing council refurbishments and feared for my life, The planners who probaby live in a posh Cheshire village want us to shop in bandit country and get mugged or/and shot for having a fiver in our pockets, No thanks,

that makes sense,, planning the roads you don't use, nice little house in the country,, nice work if you can get it,

what we tradesmen call bodgeit and scarper,

Posted by: Stardelta (6316) Report abuse
Too many old codgers who don't know what to do in yellow box junctions and who stay out of bus lanes when they are not operational.

Does my head in, no wonder the roads are all clogged up eh?

Posted by: Stardelta (6316) Report abuse
Not one of them are you Tom?

Posted by: tomplum (4702)  Report abuse
too many cars on the road

thats the problem

Posted by: Stardelta (6316) Report abuse
Why do you keep saying you don't want to talk to me Tom then a couple of weeks later change your mind?

This must he about the fifth time how?

Posted by: tomplum (4702)  Report abuse
I've got my bus pass and use it, and on a good day, i walk to where i want to go,


Posted by: Stardelta (6316) Report abuse
Will I start doing it when I retire??

Posted by: tomplum (4702)  Report abuse
Sledge, I've never talked to you, I'd need to be in ear shot distance to do that, and that will never happen, we are not on the same planet,

Posted by: Stardelta (6316) Report abuse
That's very encouraging Tom, more room for me when I am on the manor.

Posted by: Stardelta (6316) Report abuse
Haven't you got that old VW van anymore?
I always look out for you when I am on Poolstock lane.

Posted by: tomplum (4702)  Report abuse
to retire, first you have to work, being a pen pushing desk jockey is not work, Its a none producing blood sucking, middle management position, bit like a benefit claimant but not so deserving,

Posted by: Stardelta (6316) Report abuse
You are talking to me now Tom, (even though I am not Mr Sledge)

Posted by: Stardelta (6316) Report abuse
Ohhhhhh Tom......you sound so bitter and cynical.

Someone has to supervise the minions in society and make the calls that are beyond them, and ironically are for their own good.

Posted by: tomplum (4702)  Report abuse
Vans gone long time ago sledge, It worked hard like i did and it was retired too, And if you go up Poolstock lane you must be admiring the new Marus Bridge juncxtion,
thanks for that sledge you must be realy plesed now that you can take a long look at the houses, were onced you could speed past, now you queue, nice job,

Posted by: Stardelta (6316) Report abuse
Imagine what the world would be like if it was overseen by a group of retired plumbers with anger management issues



.........no thanks

Posted by: Stardelta (6316) Report abuse
Is there a queue there now Tom?

Posted by: Stardelta (6316) Report abuse
My guess is not........so what does that say?

Posted by: tomplum (4702)  Report abuse

Ohhhhhh Tom......you sound so bitter and cynical.

just stating facts mate,

anyrode been nice typing to you ( not talking) must go now

catch ya in cherrys one day, only i drink Carling not that belgium muck,

Posted by: Stardelta (6316) Report abuse
You haven't stated anything that stands up Tom, nor answered any of the questions I put to you.

Better luck next time eh?

Posted by: nyce horse (3380) Report abuse
Avoid the facts, change the subject, resort to personal abuse.
I bet you are really popular in your local.

Posted by: PeterP (6486) Report abuse
Did not know car park in Ashton(in Makerfield) had any thing to do with Central Manchester or Marus BridgeThought thread was about getting on a car park without having an accident due to a bad junction and lay out of car park.I drive around Ashton not Central Manchester so will not comment about the place I leave that to Stardelta who probably has been in Central Manchester at 8-00am,Myself I would normally be having my breakfast about that time

Posted by: whups (2969)  Report abuse

Posted by: PeterP (6486) Report abuse

Posted by: wizzerwin (1487) Report abuse

Wizzerwin

Search for supreme court ruling parking eye v beavis. This was quoted on a recent parking ticket for Robin Park.

Posted by: spud1 (1694) Report abuse
Who owns the car park,the owner of the land can over rule Parking Eye,if you have a good excuse.

Posted by: mortarmillbill (385) Report abuse
