Commuters urged to have link road say

Evesham Editorial 9th Dec, 2017   0

PERSHORE commuters are being urged to make their voices heard as Worcestershire County Council plans the design of the town’s new Link Road.

County chiefs have opened a consultation which will look at the new road which will connect the town centre with the A44.

The project will see the Local Enterprise Partnership and the county council invest an estimated £10 million into the scheme.

Town MP Harriett Baldwin has urged county chiefs to consider the current problems posed by the temporary traffic lights on Station Road when considering the second phase of road improvements.




“Many people have views on the way traffic can flow better along Station Road and towards Wyre Piddle and this is their chance to influence the design of the new road.

“While I do hope that the housing developer will fulfill its legal commitments and finish the junction, there must be proper local consultation on what the right long-term solution is.


“I encourage as many local commuters as possible to get involved and share their views with the county council.

“This important infrastructure project must get local buy-in and deliver improved journey times for commuters.”
