Have your say

AS a regular bus user, I find there are many problems with Blackpool Transport.

I use the 14 service every day, and a wait of up to 30 minutes in the rush hour is not unusual.

This is supposed to be a 10-minute service.

I also get the No.9 bus which hardly ever runs to time and then two come together.

In fact, just about every time I go to catch a Blackpool Transport bus it is late.

The managing director blames the council.

I do not understand this – surely he is paid to make the buses run on time.

Every town in the country has traffic and road network problems, but I doubt they have our poor level of service.

Traffic chaos needs addressing now

IF nothing is done to sort out the traffic chaos at the junction of Squires Gate Lane, Amy Johnson Way and St Annes Road, there is going to be a bad accident.

Road studs separating lanes of traffic are inadequate for their purpose and the exit from Amy Johnson Way is a free-for-all.

Traffic in the centre lane (meant for cars turning right into Squires Gate Lane), cuts straight ahead, forcing vehicles joining St Annes Road to swerve inwards, often with a parked bus in their way.

The centre lane shows right-only arrows, so there is no excuse whatsoever.

We have the right to a referendum

Mr Jack Forshaw (Letters, October 31) has got this topic spot on.

We went into the then common market on the back of a national referendum. Circumstances have now very much changed, people who could not vote then can do so now.

The politicians of this country have an obligation to listen to the people, but they are refusing to do so because what we the electorate might say is not what they want to hear.

We have the right to demand a referendum. I will be writing to my MP. How about the rest of you?
