Madness. I will campaign to have Water Street reopened in both directions if elected.


The recent closure of Water Street, Port Talbot is proving not to be a very smart move by the "HALFWITS" who masquerade as members of the increasingly unaccountable Neath and Port Talbot County Borough Council.
.
Why has it been done ?
.
According to an article in the South Wales Evening Post recently one of the reasons stated for this is "to improve air quality in the area by reducing levels of nitrogen dioxide."
.
Authority "Dictatorial" leader Ali Thomas said: "This work is essential to ensure the area is not designated as an air quality management area, as this would be detrimental to the area's future development opportunities."
.
How strange is that !
.
A council supposedly concerned about air quality in the Fairfield.
.
Is this not the same Council that has approved the "Stinking and Unwanted Biomass Fuel Plant" that encroaches within yards of peoples houses in Margam ?
.
So what about the additional pollution that is being created by cars having to go around the "wacky races system" to get back to the Fairfield, an additional journey of about 1 mile.
.
According to a Western Mail article in January 2009.
.
The £80m Port Talbot Distributor Road was in danger of becoming a ghost road, with traffic levels well below what council chiefs were expecting.
.
Just 8,000 vehicles were using the road a day, leading to traffic jams along Water Street with 22,000 vehicles a day.
.
So 22,000 vehicles used Water Street every day in both directions.
.
Now 11000 vehicles have to undertake an additional mile due to Water Street being closed in one direction.
.
That is 11000 miles of "Carbon Monoxide " being spewed in to the air for no reason whatsoever and additional cost to motorists already pressed by fuel at £1.20 per litre !
.
I have also been told that a taxi home now costs and extra £2 thanks to the additional mileage required.
.
This "lunacy" is to be reconsidered after 3 months according to NPTCBC which is about now.
.
I have emailed them urging this to end and for Water Street to be reopened in both directions.
.
So let's wait and see what happens.

The residents are up in arms.

Francis says nothing as he is too scared to go against his " Buddies" in the Council.

BNP for me

Leaflet says it all.
Your mass mobbing in tonights BBC Election programme was vicious. They did not want you there.
The three stooges are scared of you. Fair play to the Lib Dem Leader she did not follow the three mobbers with a hell of a guilty concience.
The South African terrorist and bank robber was backed up by Dr Dewi Evans' the Welsh Harold Shipman's protector Ieuan Airlines Wyn Jones.

I have just seen Welsh Ledaers Debate that was sky plussed.

You were ambushed just like Question Time a baying mob of anti BNPer's.

You did well credit to you but obviously you were a "Sacrificial Lamb" for the baying hoards of the pro Immigration/Islamist Audience.

Hain as usual " Lied like F+*k "
