Call for diversion to reduce Darwen tailbacks
10:00pm Monday 3rd September 2012 in News
TRAFFIC between Bolton and Blackburn should be diverted off the A666 through Darwen centre to cut post-flooding tailbacks, it has been claimed.
Sudell ward councillor Paul Browne suggested the move to highways chiefs at Blackburn with Darwen’s full council forum.
Tory opposition leader Mike Lee questioned the wisdom of diverting potential shoppers in Darwen by directing them away from the town centre.
Regeneration chief, Dave Harling, said everything possible was being done to get the traffic flowing.
