The one way streets were created when Francis Road was closed to through traffic between the hours of 10 to 8.
The works prevented anyone with a car in the northern part above Albert Road travelling to anywhere south, without going into the High Road, and vice versa.
A lot of traffic was heading down Scarborough Rd, the other side of the train line, which has led to that being closed to left hand turns from Grove Green Road.
If I had a fiver for every time I have given confused visitors in cars directions of how to get one road south of the closures, or one road north, I'd be a few hundred pounds richer.
Come around 8.30 or 3pm (1 on a Friday) to hear the Norlington school chorus of car horns.
Thanks, that sounds like a poorly-thought out scheme. One does hope that they'll revisit it soon.
