YOUR LETTERS: At last, action on A16 junction

Have your say

As many of your readers may know, I have campaigned against the old Radar Corner junction on the A16 since it was first opened.

I’ve recently held a positive meeting with MP John Hayes, with us both agreeing that something must be done concerning this junction and parts of the road before more drivers are seriously or fatally injured.

Over the last two months, I’ve been in contact with Richard Davies at Lincolnshire County Council’s highways department.

His opinion is that there is not a problem – it’s the drivers. We all know this is true, but I believe we must be protected from them.

Following my meeting with Mr Hayes, he is now trying to arrange a meeting with Mr Davies to discuss the on-going problems.

So Mr Davies, is it not about time you left the comfort of your office and looked at this junction?

Have you ever been to look at the junction when it is at its busiest?

In the meantime, and in response to safety issues at this junction, the county’s senior coroner, Professor Robert Forrest, has bypassed the highways department and is now writing to the Secretary of State for Transport.

At last, I’m so pleased that someone, hopefully, is going to listen to the local residents of the area.

I’m just sorry that it has taken the loss of so many lives to get to this point.
