Purpose of roads should be traffic flow

Yet again we have to suffer unnecessary delays thanks to the half-wits in charge of Calderdale’s roads.

The quote from the spokesperson (p3, HBT 9/2/2012) shows not only a poor grasp of English but also offers the flimsiest of pretexts for blocking the main road for 8 weeks. The purpose of A roads is to allow traffic to flow. The purpose of the half-wits is apparently to restrict this flow wherever they can.

Who conducted this “district traffic review” and how much did they get paid for it?

Such blatant wasting of our council tax beggars belief.
