Wigan Traffic engineer prefers cheap and nasty

This is my contribution to a wigantoday.net forum discussing speed humps.

Wigan love destroying car suspensions. I came over the new hump outside Bryn Gates Primary School (outside school hours) at 30mph, before they’d put any paint on it.

 It was like hitting a brick wall.

Even now, I find it a bumper at 5mph. It’s far too high and severe but it won’t be improved.
Far better that thousands of motorists pay out for new suspensions than Wigan spends a few quid on a lollipop man, or even a Pelican crossing.
Cheap and nasty is Wigan Borough Style (except for council officer accomodation).
Wigan spent £500,000 on taxis etc last year. You’d think the taxi companies would be having a word, considering the damage they must suffer, at the speeds that they go.
