A GARAGE owner is protesting over plans for double yellow lines outside his 100-year-old workshop and a road closure which he says will cut off his passing trade.

Adam Czutkowna has also hit out at local authority traffic bosses as he claims they have ommitted the entrance to his business, J & A Motors from the map of the plan.

The changes put forward by Bolton Council’s Highways and Engineering Division are part of the £7 million new offices for Bolton law firm Asons on the site of the former Clarence Street school and college building.

Mr Czutkowna has been running J & A Motors in All Saints Street, opposite the development site, for 30 years and owns the property he occupies. He said: “I am astonished that the council’s drawing does not show my entrance.

“Not only that, the drawing of the current road layout shows a vehicular access to the Clarence Street site, which does not exist.”

Mr Czutkowna is also concerned about the planned closure of Clarence Street at its junction with All Saints Street, which will cut off one-way traffic to Higher Bridge Street passing his workshop.

He added: “Apart from stopping passing trade, blocking the road off is potentially dangerous, because large vehicles which enter Clarence Street from Higher Bridge Street, will be forced to reverse into a major road when they realise it’s a dead end.

“The reason Clarence Street was made one way in the first place was because it was deemed to be too dangerous for people to try to get out on to Higher Bridge Street.

“This could make the situation a lot worse.”

A spokesman for Bolton Council said: “These are proposed highways works and Mr Czutkowna can let us know his views and they will be considered.

“He did have an opportunity to raise his concerns before the scheme went to planning committee, but we didn’t receive any objections from him.

“The Clarence Street closure is to facilitate access to the Asons development and to better control the flow of traffic in and out of the building.

“With regard to the omission of the entrance of the garage from the map, we tend to use Ordnance Survey maps for guidance. But we are aware of the entrance to his premises.”

It took me 25 minutes to get from Chorley new road to the doctors at waters meeting last week this is a regular occurrence this Mosque is going to be a nightmare yet if you say anything you are accused of racism. I for one was not surprised it was sanctioned.

The council is corrupt, and now the comments are being corrupted by people possibly linked to this corruption.
Where has our freedom of speech gone??
Just because people say something doesn't make them automatically racist, they are opposing something that in their view isn't right and now most arguments are settled with someone else deemed a racist when they speak openly!
Think carefully what I am about to say....
Firstly Farnworth is about to get a 3 storey replacement for an existing mosque. I am openly against this....am I racist for saying I don't want it? No, I am objecting to the proposal on 3 issues.
1) It will be a newbuild in a predominantly Victorian terraced area.
2) It will increase traffic and parking issues in that area.
3) The building will be disproportionate in size to the existing surrounding area.
I'm sure now that someone will call me racist.
Secondly, there is to be a super-mosque built on Blackburn Road.
I am against this development due to existing issues with parking and traffic on a main arterial route for Bolton, this will displace some traffic into surrounding streets where people will attempt to avoid the traffic jams. The building is currently in use and serving purpose so why turn it into the proposed site?
Where will these worshippers go while it is being demolished and rebuilt?
Thirdly, there is to be a muslim boys school built on an undeveloped site on Wolfenden Street.
So this is for muslim boys only??
Not only is this premises to cater for a single faith, but only one sex.
So you are telling me that if a white, christian girl was to apply for a place at this school she would be rejected, where is the equality in that??
Call me racist if you wish, think you should be looking at yourselves first!!
I await the usual comments............

Our dynamic council bosses (of whom spend a prodigious amount of time drinking in various town centre watering holes while supposedly carrying out important council decisions) do not wish to be labelled "racist" - a bunch of weak minded individuals.
How long do companies like Asons last? Here today, gone tomorrow; a solicitors' supermarket is a very strange concept.
The fallout is then yet more transport chaos.
Grow some balls Guy, Martin, Cliff, and give us a Bolton to be proud of...
