Editor’s Comment: Roadworks seem ill-thought-out

The roadworks at the crossroads of Watson Road and Newcastle Street are a right old mess.

The traffic problems they are causing are one thing, but these are not the main concern.

For pedestrians trying to cross at this busy junction it is a bit like a game of Russian roulette.

For mums with pushchairs and those with disabilities the problem of crossing is exacerbated even further.

Unfortunately, this misery is set to last for a number of weeks more.

Surely more could have been done to take into account the needs of pedestrians while these roadworks are going on.

Let’s hope the finished result of the work will have been worth all the hassle
