Street was closed off for a reason

With reference to those who want Pynot Hall Lane re-opening to through traffic.

Drivers were using the lane to avoid going through town and using the crossroads.

By having the lane closed off to through traffic it now makes drivers actually drive into town.

Surely that’s what the traders want?

If these drivers choose not to stop off in town, because they were just passing through anyway on their way to work; opening up our road isn’t going to make them come in to town and shop.

I’d be interested to know how many residents have signed the petition to have it re-opened.

Kirklees Highways have no intention to do anything before the trial time is up anyway.
