Roadworks start in town centre

Monday January 16 2017

Some road closures will be in place Some road closures will be in place

ROADWORKS that will take four months to complete and will involve road and footpath closures have begun in the town centre.

Barnsley Council started the improvement works on Sunday (January 15).

The work will affect Wellington Street (outside the library), Pitt Street, Peel Street, Grahams Orchard and Shambles Street (opposite St Mary’s Place).

The works will involve new kerbing and paving works to the footways, new traffic signals, traffic signs and street lighting and new carriageway surfacing and road markings.

The first stage of the works will focus on traffic signals and will last about five weeks. Kerbing and paving work will then start until April.

The improvement works will take approximately four months to complete and will be taking place between 7:30am and 4:30pm Monday to Friday with occasional evening and weekend working.

Coun Roy Miller, Cabinet Spokesperson for Place, said: “To allow us to carry the works out safely, footway closures, alternative pedestrian routes and some road closures will be necessary.

"Where possible these will be timed to cause as little inconvenience to the community and local businesses as possible.

“We apologise in advance for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience and co-operation during these essential works.”

Think he was just commenting on how long it is going to take not asking how long hense the exclamation mark and not a question mark. You should learn grammar before sarcastically replying as you look a bit thick....

There are your grammatical errors.

Stephanie. The clue is in the question? He said how long? I said 4 months! If that's rude then I apologise. And I don't have issues thank you very much.

All of those exclamation marks are not required, neither is the tone that you write with, chill out!

Ada, He was stating a fact, not asking a question, hence the exclamation mark '!', and not question mark '?' capiche?

Guys, I applaud the efforts at grammar but get it right.

Ada, no need for three exclamation marks. Excessive use adds nothing.
Carrie, should say "I think", shouldn't't start sentence with "Think".
Dave, no full stop.
Dean, too many errors to comment on. You really should read it through to make sure it makes sense.
Stephanie, you shouldn't start a sentence with "And". Perhaps a semi-colon would suffice
Me, no need to use a comma before "and".

Good effort, nice to see grammar being highlighted.
