At 4.30pm on 20th July, the NWL Highways Forum will be discussing the controversial plans to widen Hugglescote Cross Roads. The CrossRoads Action Group (CRAG) will be presenting a petition from local residents.
CRAG have also paid for a professional traffic survey. The data supports their claim that Grange Rd/Ashburton Rd is already being used as an informal 'southern-bypass'. Widening the junction would only increase though traffic and do nothing to solve the real problems which are due to the lack of improvements to the A511.
The NWL Highway Forum is held in public at the District Council. I encourage local residents to be there to support their town.
