  1. New Market ?

    I agree with you but not sure the current development will do that. I find it very difficult to see how it will do anything to regenerate the area much further then the cinema square. I mean who goes shopping before or after going to the cinema.? Might go to somewhere like weatherspoons or Toby for a meal but your not likely to go clothes shopping, or for electronics right after or before you have been to a movie theatre. I know no one who does. How often do you go to a cinema and when? probably your going on your day off and if your not going to see a specific film, your going for a cheap night out. You said you have been to Westbrook, had problems parking? There is no multi story car park and how many shops and restaurants and so on around the cinema? How many that are open after you leave in the evening? Take the Trafford Centre cinema as another example, the shops are closed when you come out of the cinema at night, why do they not stay open? I don't get why people going to the city centre cinema will behave differently. I hope I am wrong though.
  2. New Market ?

    Both!!! In my view it is wrong to pull down perfectly good buildings to venture that may not produce the results that are desired. What happens then? Do you not know there is a second large car park just around the corner that is mostly empty at night and half empty during the day? I would like to see some of old Warrington preserved. PS How many cars did the old car park accommodate, anyone know?
  3. New Market ?

    First I hear that the car park was falling to bits and I really do not think it wasn't big enough (I am sure I once read it was underused). I never found problems finding ample parking apart for around Christmas and i suspect it will still be the case. Does anyone else here feel the car park was not big enough? As I said many councils have empty building officers who work to bring back buildings into use. The reason developers leave building to decay is so they can tear them down and they are allowed to get away with it. The council seem to have lots of money to spend on new council offices, new car parks and risk ventures like cinemas. Hope you enjoyed your movie, doesn't really answer the question I posed though. Is the town big enough for two cinemas?
  4. New Market ?

    They can always buy them! Seriously though I have never seen a justification for the replacement car park. As for the packet House, the council have the power to order repairs or do them themselves and recover the cost. Many councils have empty building officers who look to put buildings back into use. A little bit off topic, What off the future of Westbrook Cinema. Not been for a while, last time I went with my niece and we were the only ones at the screening. I know it has had a number of owners, wonder if it will close soon after the city centre one opens.
  5. New Market ?

    It does look nicer, but at what cost? Painting or cladding the building would have improved its look at a fraction of the cost. Should the council pull down the office block in Scotland Rd because it does not look nice. Millions spent on something that really was not needed yet the council does not have the money to save the Cabinet Works and repair some off the derelict buildings like the pub as you cross the bridge over the Mersey should it be lit up in a age were we are concerned with pollution and who will pay the bill. It should have smart lights that go off when not needed.
  6. New Market ?

    Need a bigger car park for all the tourists who will come to the cinema and for all the council workers to park their cars.
  7. Dial-a-Ride, important service or not

    One would thought that the council could find alternative accommodation for the charity. The bus depot for example or the council depot near Sainsbury jump to mind (is it still active?), but there must be lots of community centres, collages and other places it can use. Now a little off topic but if the waste centre is going to emit fall out clouds of dust that it will damage vehicles how is it being allowed to be built so close to residential areas?
  8. NHS moan one - walk in centre

    They have various drop in clinics run at various times such as diabetes, stop smoking, weight management and so on. When I rang on Friday to see if we can get the dressing changed in Warrington today we had to make an appointment which was not available for today. We have an appointment for Thursday to change the dressing but had a choice of AM appointments only. Warrington has not got a drop in clinic of the type there is in Widnes, as far as I know and neither does our GP practice. I could be wrong and if anyone knows better please inform
  9. The blood centre at the Jubilee centre used to open until 2.30, but now they reduced to 13.45, arrived at 13.00 a few days ago it was already closed. Why can the facility not stay open until 18.00 so when a doctor orders a blood test you do not have to go back in the morning and wait for ages while they clear the back log of people who could not get the service the day before?
  10. Why has Warrington not got one? When a huge blister appeared on a relatives foot the first port of call was the GP nurse, but the receptionist told she could do nothing as they do not carry dressings! To trivial for the A + E dept we set in Fridays traffic to the \Walk In centre in Widnes, today we had to return to get the dressing seen to. Is Warrington not large enough to have its own walk in centre?
  11. So why do most of the routes start/finish in Chester Road, in Walton? I understood it to be a road to take the traffic away from the town centre. In any case it is kind of irrelevant, the question I originally asked why not use the roads which are already built rather then build others nearby
  12. I am really not sure why you are talking about the M62, it supposed to be a ring road not a connecting road You are going to have to cross across Old Liverpool Road in four of the proposed routes I believe. A bit off topic but if the council are building flyovers how about a couple on Winwick Rd
  13. Extremely confused! If I am in that area and wish to get to the M62 I would use Cronwell Avenue or the A57 to get to the M62, why would I head into town? The point of the bypass is to have a link road around Warrington so while I must admit the idea of putting a road further towards widnes is not that good. Even if you do not use Old Liverpool Rd I fail to see why not use Barnard St/Forrest Way?
  14. I don't get your point Asperity, traffic destine for the town centre, M62 and north of the town would continue along Sankey Way, traffic going to Stockton Heath would go along the Old Liverpool Rd. What seems to be missed is if you put another junction on Sankey Way it will clog Sankey Way even more. Maybe the answer is to put the road near the True Fit Golf Center on Widnes Rd and link it with the Daresbury Express Way? But I know nothing about road planing and traffic management - just like Warrington council - and talking rubbish again like Warrington Council, I wonder if they have any vacancies?
  15. Because Liverpool Rd/Barnard St/Forrest Way are already built and to me it makes sense to use the infrastructure you have before demolishing homes and businesses and building more of what you have. It also kind of makes sense - to me at least - to split the traffic along two routes rather the funnel it along one road (Sankey Way) that already gets very busy While Barnard St and Forrest Way are usually very quiet, even more so with the closure of the tip.
