Whilst I no longer live in Collingtree, I grew up there, as did my parents, grandparents and great grandparents. What they’re proposing is an abomination on the local countryside. I work in a village on the A508 and if there’s a hold up on the A45 or M1, it has a huge knock on effect on traffic, which then impacts on the A5. Put simply the roads cannot sustain any more traffic, regardless of traffic measures. The network cannot cope.
