For the second weekend now I have passed the major road works at Barrow's Astra lights and wondered what was missing. Stopping to look I could see that no diggers were digging no drills were drilling and no workers were working. Despite this being one of the busiest junctions in the whole of Cumbria and that one of our major roads Holker St is blocked and causing long diversions, nobody was working there all weekend. Why? surely it's only reasonable to assume that every daylight hour would be used to get this work done, and this main crossroads open again and if not why not. To add insult to injury I see that they have now narrowed the outward bound side of Abbey Rd down to one lane, that should add to the fun at rush hours.
