Anger over road closure
Readers expressed their frustration after we revealed a busy street in Wishaw town centre would be partially closed for the next two weeks for refurbishment works. Kenilworth Avenue would be closed for 10 days for repairs to the road surface, footpath and kerbs. Foregone conclusion that this would happen.
The sweep of the road is only made for traffic coming from the bottom of Wishaw.
Anyone with half a brain could see it was not meant for traffic coming from Wishaw Cross.
Of course the majority of public transport used to come that way but nowadays they come from the opposite end hence the difficulty in entering Kenilworth Avenue.
It’s so bad that the X11 no longer comes that way at all.
When it first re-opened I wrongly assumed that there would be no right turn from the Main Street at all. Isabel Scott There was nothing wrong with the Main Street the way it was.
All it needed was the road resurfaced not altered or changed in anyway.
They’ve wasted a fortune of our i.e the taxpayers money and continue to do so while we sit back and just accept it after a short moan.
If we stopped paying our taxes they won’t be long in doing things right. Sean Cairns Whoever is responsible for designing the road should be sacked; it’s a mess.
The emergancy services can not get by the traffic on the Main Street as its too narrow.
It’s a disgrace. Allison Paton Thewishaw Press have kicked off a fantastic new feature to find our readers’digital picture of the week.

We are looking for either a picture that you have taken in thewishaw area or perhaps a selfie of your family while you were on holiday at home or abroad, or Who is carrying the can for this idiotic shape of a road?

Just a shame they won’t be working nights as well. David Thomson An NHS chief this week insisted
lessons will be learned after vomit was left lying on the floor of Wishaw hospital‘s cafe for almost a day. Readers were left unimpressed.
It’s disgusting. No wonder people would rather be at home than in that place. Catherine Cowan Boyle Morgan It’s because of cuts. They are short staffed.
Don’t blame them. Laura Dickson Our story about a widower asking for the public’s help to find his lost wedding ring struck a cord with readers who shared the story more than 400 times. So sad. I hope he finds it very soon. Good luck Mick. Lilias Waring Have they checked the police station?
Or Cash for Gold shops or even Cash Generators?
This is heartbreaking, I really hope he finds it. Colette Thomson I hope Mick gets it back. He will be heartbroken. Beverley Anderson
