Barrow's taxi drivers are gnashing their teeth and cursing this week, and not just because of the closure of Hindpool Road which is one of Barrow's main routes. This is causing stress and chaos enough, but the thing causing the most upset is the loss of one of our traditional rat runs. One of our best little traffic avoiding back street short cuts has fallen victim to the alley gates scheme. The back street between
Greengate St and Harrison St known as Field St has been used for years to gain access to the end of Dalton Rd our main shopping street. This is a favorite dropping of point for our passengers and will now cost more to get too and take longer to reach. But as usual we are the last to know and are never consulted, so it's like it or lump it.
