A303 Sparkford to Ilchester Dualling

Received 13 September 2018
From Jonathan Baker


I fully support the A303 Sparkford to Illchester dualling. The dual carriageway will make safer journeys to the West Country from the South East. I agree with the two level junctions proposed. It seems to be designed as an expressway with layby fitted with emergency telephones.
My only concern is a lack of a parallel road to the north side from the proposed Camel Hill link road to the Downhead overbridge for emergency purposes.

The tree planting of banks and bunds will help filter noise and improve aesthetics to the local scattered properties.
The dual carriageway is long overdue and needs building as soon as possible
