Those dreaded yellow signs have appeared on lampposts along Centenary Way – the ones warning of imminent roadworks.
Their appearance is enough to send even the most battle-hardened motorist into a cold sweat.
The work on the Centenary Way flyover is, however, essential and will no doubt take many, many months to complete.
After the Westgate roundabout fiasco, Burnley drivers will be hoping for a better co-ordinated project of work this time around.
Thankfully, some common sense has already been shown by aiming to start the project just before the school holidays start.
