Junction 11 improvements


Yesterday I went to see what the contractors are up to at Junction 11 with Cllr Mike Orton.  From what we could gather it seems to be going well and if all goes to plan it will be a big improvement on the old system.  I was particularly keen ot see how it would affect walkers and cyclists and was pleased to be shown that there will be a 3m wide walk and cycle way both leading into town and across the junction so it will be straightforward to get from Whitley Wood across to the business park.

It was also good to see that the provision for buses - which will also help car drivers.  We will be keeping an eye on the work including for any complaints that residents have.
