THIS collapsed wall is causing something of a detour on a rural road.
The wall has fallen down on Pike Law Road just below its junction with Slaithwaite Gate.
The road is heavily used by people living at Scapegoat Hill and they are now having to detour to Golcar through Bolster Moor or down through Scapegoat Hill along High Street and Taylor Lane.
Pike Law Road – a continuation of Swallow Lane from Golcar – is now completely closed while the wall is rebuilt.
A Kirklees Council spokesman said the work would be completed as quickly as possible and was scheduled to finish by the end of this month.
