Have your say
I have had the displeasure at driving on this junction recently. I myself have had a few near misses, i feel this is dangerous especially with me having a low car.I feel that this junction needs to be rectified, in my home town there is no one way systems or anything. Barrows traffic needs to be sorted ASAP!
Well done to the emergency services who attended this poor lady and her unborn child. After 1st April, how long would she have had to wait to be released by the Fire Service?
