Why were the motor vehicles not on the parallel M62?
There is a 'perfectly good' motorway provided 'at great expense to the tax payer'.
To be fair, the M62 is some 15 miles north of Woodhead Pass. Which doesn't excuse his idiotic and dangerous driving, of course.


15 miles with a maximum speed limit of 60mph means the average law abiding driver will be there in 10 mins.

Assuming they're not going to Tintwistle.


Any relation to Mr Pink-Whistle or Mr Twiddle?

It was one of the stop offs on my epic 8 counties evening pub crawl taking in Humberside, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Greater Manchester, West Yorkshire, South Yorkshire and North Yorkshire in 1984.

It's called the M62.
No Motor Vehicles except for access signs should be a cheap solution since motor vehicle operators always obey the law.

Wrong (again, fancy that).

What was the point in that pitfully-failed attempt at a wisecrack?

Motorvehiclists who wish to pass East/West over the Pennines to/from Manchester can use the M62 and therefor avoid Tintwistle.
it's not a terribly difficult concept to grasp.

It is common practice to impose restriction on through traffic once a bypass has been provided.

Which bit of the fact that a bypass for Tintwistle has long been planned
and promised (but not yet built) is too difficult a concept for you to
grasp?

[That's rhetorical; it is well understood that all of it is too
difficult for you.]

Not as common as all that, and certainly not where the restiriction
means that traffic entering a town has to exit in the direction from
which it entered, even if its next destination dicates travel in th
opposite direction.

Not, of course, that the M62 can credibly be claimed as a bypass for
Tintwistle, with that town (and the Woodhead Pass) being fed from the
west by the M67 motorway which is linked to the Lancashire motorway and
trunk road network.

As a pure aside, have you ever approached Stockport by road from the
south-east of England? Have a little think about the optimum route.

You'll probably find it difficult to grasp this (sorry about that), but
it all boils down to a four-letter word of which you may have had little
experience: work.

When I was a worker, mine took me all over England (not so much in the
north, but never say never).
