Anger over road clo­sure

Wishaw Press - - YOUR VIEWS -

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 have teamed up with Mor­risons in Kirk Road who will pro­vide a FREE fam­ily meal for four (two adults and two chil­dren) at their cafe for ev­ery read­ers’dig­i­tal pic­ture of the week that we print in our news­pa­per.

It can be photograph, selfie or im­age that you or your chil­dren have taken on a dig­i­tal cam­era, ipad, or smart­phone.

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?

Surely some­one’s head must roll or else they should be pay­ing for the al­ter­ation. Judy Mcbride Maybe once the traf­fic war­dens start chil­dren’s draw­ing on an ipad.

We would also like pic­tures of your spe­cial oc­ca­sions, such as wed­ding an­niver­saries, chil­dren’s birth­day par­ties, re­tire­ments dos, fam­ily cel­e­bra­tions, party pic­tures, club or group pic­tures, or any other big day or char­ity event.

All you have do is send your pic­ture to us at news@ wishaw­press.co.uk or con­tact us through our Face­book andtwit­ter pages.

Please make sure you in­clude your name, ad­dress and con­tact de­tails and in­for­ma­tion about your pic­ture. tick­et­ing cars for park­ing on the pave­ments it will re­duce the dam­age to them.

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
