Fences on Ashworth Lane

Ashworth Lane, the B6174 from Hattersley to Mottram in Longdendale, just after the grass verges have been cut.

It is a busy little road used by the #201 bus from Manchester which turns left by the pedestrian crossing into John Kennedy Road.

It is also used as a "rat-run" by traffic trying to avoid the queues on the A57.

Soon it will be even busier due to the Tesco superstore that is under construction close by.

The low wooden fences are there to prevent traffic straying on to the verges.

See the grass-cutters on Hyde DP Xtra.

  3. The fences looks like they were built to stop anything the guard rails did not.

  6. This is a fence built with safety in mind--for walkers as well as drivers. I have a long time friend who lives near Manchester. Hear from him mostly at Christmas.

  7. Nicely composed. Fences are wonderful things. They keep neighbors out, and cars in. Thus, fences make good neighbors. Or something like that.
