Have your say

The junction of the A6 and Morecambe Road has been expensively re-shaped over about a two-month period.

It is certainly more attractive to look at than before and the white lines are much clearer. However its effect on traffic flow is disastrous.

It now can take almost 50 minutes to get to the centre of Lancaster in the morning when coming down the A6 from the north. The main problem is the use and phasing of traffic lights, which cause delays as alternate flows of traffic are allowed through from the A6 and Morecambe.

Since this was not an accident blackspot, why was this money spent in this way? Perhaps the county council can tell us how much it cost and can explain what benefits this brings?
