I had a Quick hour and a half lunch hour today and visited Wigan to go Revolution Bar for meal. Knowing I was a League fan I thought- ten minutes in, ten minutes out- an Hour Luch. No issue. What a Nightmare getting into Wigan is....One Road in, One road out...Total Disaster.

What other town can Rival the one road predicament that is Wigan

there are at least 5 roads into wigan town center, such as hallgate, wallgate, stairgate, bishopgate, and millgate.
Now this is the Law of the Jungle --
as old and as true as the sky;
And the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper,
but the Wolf that shall break it must die.

As the creeper that girdles the tree-trunk
the Law runneth forward and back --
For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf,
and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.

The new road layout around Wigan pier has been something of a revelation, even though its not 100% complete, you should have visited 12 months ago, then you'd have had something to complain about!

We are lucky if we get half an hour in the NHS, barely enough time to have a sandwich or micro left-overs so stop moaning about a ###### 90 min lunch "Quick?"

I see the HDM report now says it caused lengthy tailbacks.

They must have been working on that one all night.
