Pyenot Hall Lane petition: Remember why it was closed in the first place!

Further to the petition to re-open Pyenot Hall Lane, may I remind people of the reason we campaigned to have it closed?

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.
