A ROAD safety watchdog is demanding to know why it has taken 50 years to get action on a Brighouse road.
Chairman of Brighouse Road Safety Committee Ann Rutherford said there was a piece in the Looking Back section of the Brighouse Echo from October 5, 1962 that called for road improvements to be made along Halifax Road. “Why has it been an on going subject for 50 years? It is about time Calderdale Council did something about it and get on with it.”
Councillor Scott Benton (Con, Brighouse) said the road surface was being done and he expected it to be retextured as soon as the roadworks are completed. “The pedestrian island will be constructed on the opposite side to the One Stop shop too,” he told the committee.
