The sign by the Mauldeth/ Barlow Moor roadworks proclaims something like 'works ongoing until 2016'.

God help us all.

But Metrolink have just popped a leaflet through my front door saying "The only jam you'll be seeing is on your morning toast"....

Once they've done the cable and pipe protection and reinforcement at the junction, they'll move onto the central reservation of the road, and things will move quicker.

Apart from when they're actually laying the track across the road though, yeah.

Traffic is only going to get worse next week when the kids go back to school. Bloody shame they have cut the trees down on mauldeth rd

Why? Was the traffic less bad when the trees were there?

You could admire the lovely trees and reflect on nature whilst waiting in the queue. It could have been the starting point for a whole new group of poets, The Barlow Moor Road Poets. Only it didn't, and now the trees are gone. A sad loss to poetry but that's life.

Mauldeth Road West is still lined by trees on either side. The removal of the ones in the middle has opened up the road quite nicely and let the sunshine come through, rather than the dull canopy that was offered previously.

Another example is Chorlton Green. Currently almost over-canopied by tress... and so much so that the grass is dying and it's turning into a mudbath.

Oh but don't dare cut the trees... I mean they're irreplaceable!... It's not as if they just GROW is it?

Not to that extent in your lifetime Annie, no. It's a shame. Chorlton and the range stand out from most other areas in Manchester because there are some lovely mature trees lining streets here. Remove them and it will end up looking like longsight.

Is that because without trees you can have long sight?

During nice weather and with the right tint on ones sunglasses, the trees down the centre of Mauldeth Road caught the morning sun a right treat.

I was moved to write the following haiku;

Trees on Mauldeth Road;
lush, green with dappled sunlight,
School's back, made me late
"Your optimism strikes me like junk mail addressed to the dead..."
