What's going on on Poolstock Lane

All that ground clearance both sides of the road, by the Tippings pub?

Is it a new road? Housing? Anyone know?

Think it might be something to do with the link road to Westward ind estate from the M58. Could be wrong though.

Ah, thanks. it does kinda roughly line up with the M58, although of course it's a few miles away. I've often thought it would be great to have a link between Poolstock and Ince. it's not far as the crow flies, but coming home via J25, you have to go right into Wigan centre just to come south again to get to Ince. There's a fair bit of water in the way, though!

The new road is going to run from the new Warrington Road roundabout, across the fields to the Tippings then a flyover across Poolstock lane to the old railway embankment between the flashes and along the embankment to the old Westwood Power Station site, thus allowing a lot of through traffic to bypass the Saddle. Should make getting to Ince easier.

Hopefully when its finished the road will link the M58 to the M61. At the moment the only bit being worked on is from the roundabout at little lane/ Goose Green Labour club to the roundabout on Westwood Way.

Next phase is from the M58, through Orrell St James pitch, then along Leopold street, across billing road then joins the new road across Pemberton collier, which I back onto, along with TT and Gildart.

Yeah, I don't get the sense that it's being mob-handed! :lol:
