COMMENT - Traffic blaster

IT is good to see the authorities doing their bit to help motorists out.

Due to the sheer volume of traffic on roads in the borough and across Greater Manchester roadworks are inevitable and will probably only increase in frequency.

That is why the new TfGM website telling us where is badly affected is useful, especially for commuters coming in and out of Wigan. Hopefully it will make us all a bit happier by keeping us moving and make some hotspots less congested. Nobody likes being stuck so make sure you log on.
