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!

I had a Quick hour and a half lunch hour today

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.
