At the end of last year this great council of ours decided to alter the junction on Fulwood Road and Crookes Road outside Costa Coffee – this junction in the past has proved a problem because of the siting of the bus stop.

What they have now created is utterly pathetic, installing a left turn filter up towards Crookes created by widening the pavement outside Costa Coffee. Why has this been done?

This exercise seemed to take forever, all this has caused is a tailback towards the top of Glossop Road, standing traffic on Fulwood Road, so creating pollution in and around what is a popular area for schoolchildren and students.

Was any consultation gathered before this costly mistake was undertaken? I don’t think so, thus proving another example of how to waste taxpayers’ money.

While I am on this subject of waste, please explain why it will cost an eyewatering £26 million to save or replace our wonderful tree population?

Yours, a disgusted taxpayer
