Proposals for a new training ground for Preston North End and hundreds of new homes on a golf course in the city have drawn criticism for the pressure on the road network.

Footage has been sent to Blog Preston by one motorist who uses Walker Lane each morning.

She said the scene she filmed of traffic backed up at 8.50am on Monday (12 June) is not unusual.

The route – connecting Fulwood and Ingol – would be a key part of any new development in the area and an ccess route for the training ground along with a new route to be created.

We can’t imagine Preston North End players enjoying squeezing their cars through this kind of gap as filmed in the video.

PNE say they want to move to a new training ground to attract top-flight players and prepare for any promotion to the Premier League.

Alongside the training ground proposals for 450 new homes on the bulk of the golf course – as well as creating a new public park.
