Correction. I'm way out with the date, more likely 1989, although preparations for the road commenced a fair bit earlier on.
According to photos in the Album the road was open to through traffic in 1989 Eddie, so your original date may well be correct.
I don't think so actually Cyril. I tend to date events based on where I was working at any given time and I didn't leave Steetley until the summer of 1988, so I must have started on the mixers late 88, early 89. I don't think cullie's too far off with his photo dated 87, as they're still working on the shuttering. Let's compromise and go for November 1988, as there aren't any leaves on the trees. It shouldn't be too difficult to nail it.
Central Park Way was built as part of the Wigan Inner Ring Road system and was constructed between 1985 and 1987
Yes is was definitely 1985, I did the stone work in the river and on the bridge. It was for Norwest Holst.
