A47 Wansford to Sutton
Received 27 September 2021
From Lorraine Turnell
“I object to this application because :- Lack of consultation with residents of Upton Village and surrounding rural area. The three options in statutory consultation did not mention anything about Upton Main Road being closed. The plans are unsafe for Upton drift and Langley Bush Road. Closing Upton Main road severs safe and easy access to Castor, Ailsworth and Sutton for pedestrians, cyclists and horse-riders. I feel residents of Upton are being pushed aside without our thoughts and concerns being considered. Upton drift, even with passing places is too narrow for the type of vehicles and amount of traffic. Langley Bush Road will have an increase of traffic joining the new dual carriageway making this without improvements completely unsafe for cyclists, pedestrians and horse-riders. The amount of money this is costing is extortionate and a waste for such a short stretch of road. The upset and devastation to wildlife unforgivable. Concerned resident Lorraine Turnell”
