Bringing the House Down - Literally!

John Freeman

Going, going, gone! Workers this week demolished a house on the corner of Torrisholme and Oxford Roads in Skerton to make way for a larger BP garage. Planning permission was granted some time ago.

Demolition and construction work is expected to take a month.

Local councillor Charles Grattan has voiced concerns to the County Council about the revised road layout that will result, suggesting a "yellow box" arrangement be introduced to ensure better traffic management. These have apparently been introduced on the A6 with some success.
