RTA on Market Street
There was a road traffic accident on Market Street at the Union Street junction on Saturday. It involved two cars and when I passed by there were two ambulances in attendance. Hopefully the people involved were not badly injured and were being treated by paramedics inside the ambulances.
Traffic was backed up on the approach routes. With standing traffic on Dowson Road and no bus in view I decided to walk down to the bus station and passed the scene probably some 45 minutes or so after the accident had happened. I got a bus to Denton and another from there to Ashton.
On my return journey an hour and a half later the bus was diverted via Lumn Road - no doubt accident investigators and/or recovery vehicles were on the scene by then.
