Market Street Kidsgrove Finally to Become One Way?

market street kidsgroveThere has been rumblings once again that Market Street in Kidsgrove could become one way, this is after at least 20 years of such discussions taking place regarding the focal point of Kidsgrove Town Centre.

Market Street in Kidsgrove has been at the centre of discussions for years. The original plan was to pedestrianize the road, however this was opposed by some Kidsgrove traders in the area. Then another option that was proposed was to make Market Street one way, however again this caused great debate amongst Kidsgrove traders. Now it seems that it is back on the agenda.

If this is a real movement to actually get something done or just the usual hot air that tends to come from certain groups in Kidsgrove is yet to be seen. Let’s hope that we are still not talking about this issue in 20 years time!

Its time the council stopped ignoring this problem and either make it one way or pedestrianize it. one side is all ways blocked with parked cars despite the double yellow lines and nothing is ever done, if an effort was made to move the cars that are parked on the car park at the junction of Heathcote street and king street all day instead of the stated 2hours this might ease the problem slightly, but the best thing would be to make it one way
