Once again we are having the debate regarding a roundabout at the A151/A17 junction.
Along with many other nasty junctions in the south Lincolnshire area (ie Crowland, Radar Corner and the old A16/A17) appear to favour dangerous staggered junctions rather than roundabouts.
I understand there is going to be an investigation into Peppermint Junction to see if there is a lack of visibility. This is not the problem – the actual problem is the volume of traffic on the A17.
As a local ratepayer I would like a breakdown of why it should cost £1.5million to install a roundabout which is essentially a blob of grass surrounded by concrete?
We appear to have roundabouts where the traffic is lighter – we even have one at the new Johnson Hospital – but unfortunately not on the actual main road.
So, my gripe is this... Lincolnshire County Council, I, along with many others, pay your wages. Therefore, speaking as your employer, I would really like to know why you can tell us what we can and cannot have.
You obviously know better than us simpletons that use it and pay for it.
