By their words shall ye know them...

The only thing worth taking seriously on the letters page in this week's Glossop Chronicle was a little nugget buried in the otherwise standard bleating of a pro-bypass supporter:

"The Longdendale route needs modernising and that is a plain fact and it also needs linking to the M1"

Of course, the A628 is already linked to the M1 (via Junction 37). But this is clearly an expression for something else entirely - the wish for a motorway to be built in the near future. It seems some people are not only greedy, but also can't wait. These (barely) latent plans can only strengthen the will of those against the road and reveal to those naive enough to think the construction of a bypass will end our traffic problems, or quell the calls for further construction from certain people.
