General (General discussion, talk about anything.)
Ron suggested that Beech Hill Avenue right turn lane, which is for traffic turning right into Woodhouse Drive, be lengthened by widening the road on the bend just after the junction with Beech Hill Lane, thereby helping the traffic flow down Beech Hill Avenue, because where the bend was located was just a big grass verge, so widening it would have been a simple and none expensive and surely a cost-effective way of improving the traffic flow
Alas though Mr Sledge slapped down Ron with a "wot the hell doo yoo know about roads" comment, the answer being "I drive on them, thats what I know about them, the question should be the opposite in that "what doo YOO know about roads" because it is supposed to be your job !!!!
How ironic is it that two years later the Council did exactly what Ron had suggested, and they widened Beech Hill Avenue on the bend, thus lengthening the right turn lane ......
