ROADWORKS: Hope wait is nearly over

I read in your paper that the road going along Cragend is finally going to open in the spring 2016.

I’m sure everybody is hoping this time it’s going to be for real as the past few times, it’s been delayed and it hasn’t opened.

The people have been hoping that the road will open soon. Drivers having to go around Longframlington and the crossroads, which is the long way round, has caused Rothbury’s income to decline since Boxing Day 2012, (when the road slip occurred).

Let’s hope that the reopening of the bottom road is for real next spring.
