Reader's Letter: Ghost road works


These traffic lights were set up on Knutsford Road on Monday morning. It is now Friday afternoon, and there has not been a single workman present at any time all week.

There isn't even a clue as to who has placed it there. Does anyone know who is responsible, and when they plan to do anything?

We did wonder if it might be a Banksy installation,

They were still there on Sunday afternoon. I thought the contractors could be fined if they left them without work being carried out.

It's probably an extension of Manchester City Council. They love a road-works.
Central Manchester is doing its best to show that it is firmly a powerhouse in a 3rd World country (is that term still allowed? If not, a less-prosperous country) by having the road system enhanced by a never-ending and almost-connected assault course of digging and lane-closures.
It's almost like they want to discourage car use.
