New Junction Planned

A new junction, with traffic lights,  is planned for Wigan Road near the Golden Ball pub, Landgate. This length of road is already heavily congested with long tailbacks at morning and night.

This new junction will cause further delays not to mention a great deal of pollution in the location.

If the development goes ahead this junction will have to cope with extra traffic from:

  • Over 465 houses (more than 900 extra cars)
  • Massive Supermarket (450 parking spaces and deliveries 24hrs a day)
  • More Industrial Units (more HGVs)



Proposed Site of New Traffic Lights.


This will have an effect on the whole of the Ashton area …
