Solution to Spalding junction traffic woe?

Have your say

A SOLUTION to traffic woes on a controversial junction in Spalding will be considered by South Holland’s councillors on Wednesday (Jan 5).

Members of South Holland District Council’s development control committee are to look at details of an improvement scheme for Pinchbeck Road and Woolram Wygate.

Two condition compliance applications have been made to widen Woolram Wygate to provide a third lane and to accommodate three lanes on Pinchbeck Road.

It is hoped the work will meet conditions imposed by the Secretary of State for two residential developments by Broadgate Homes and Kier Homes, formerly Allison Homes.

The plans are being recommended for approval by council officers.

Officers acknowledge some resident concerns still remain but say they do not represent “sufficient justification” to refuse the plans.

The report for the meeting states officers are in “no doubt” the scheme represents the “best possible within the confines of available land”.

Cycle action group Pedals has submitted objections to the scheme, as have residents living in Tulip Walk and Pinchbeck Road.

There are no objections from the county’s highways department.
