JUNCTION: Quote was ‘interesting but stupid’

At a special meeting on April 8 Holbeach town ward councillors met Sue Cooper of Lincolnshire Highways to discuss parking issues.

In my official capacity as Oldie Heckler of the Year, also Holbeach town ward and Fleet parish councillor, I asked why a parking bay was installed at Fleet Hargate within ten metres of a junction, contrary to the Highway Code.

Ms Cooper assured me it was perfectly safe and she had used the junction herself recently without a problem.

Residents of Fleet who regularly avoid the junction for safety reasons may find this “interesting but stupid”, to quote an old late night show.
