  1. I noticed the backed up traffic but that’s nothing as to what’s coming with all these new houses which will have two or more cars so you’ll be averaging 3000 cars more . 2000 cars on the soon Hilton estate jam butty estate with a 1000 houses on there and the other estates another 500 houses in total up to now that’s another 1000 cars .. so you’ll all have to set off work an hour earlier just to cover a few miles an by the time you get home you may as well go straight to bed … It’s a joke ..an it’s coming . Best thing the new Westhoughton immigrants will not have any schools to send there kids to or enough places for anything else .. councillors are full of ideas but nothing else .. I’d like to know exactly where all the peoples council tax money of westhoughton is going because it sure as shit ain’t being put back into this town.
