So what private money has Leigh had spent on it, and what public money has Wigan had spent on it.
I am thinking of Atherleigh Way, which is a proper bypass, only thing about private money there, is the private money which built the Parsonage Retail Park, which has buggered up that bypass fine style .....
Spinning Jenny Way I suppose that was built with private money.
Bus Station was upgraded, I suppose that was done with private dosh.
Bradshawgate and Leigh Market were recently tarted up with guess what? well it wasn't private money was it.
And the icing on the cake or custard on the arctic roll, was the 'Guided Busway' which was Greater Manchester's 'flagship' project' it cost £122 million quid build, our being built link road, which Wigan has had to beg for, it is costing £15 million pounds, bit of a difference there isn't there, and we only got the money for that because Andy Burnham has a soft spot for Wigan , and he lives in the Wigan Metropolitan Borough of Gowburn
