DevonLive.com have started a petition:
‘For too long the North Devon Link Road has been blighted by serious and even fatal accidents caused by the fact that there are few opportunities for overtaking.
A package of measures are in place to make the road safer, but no official timetable exists for the works and a lengthy Government preferred scheme process still has to be gone through.
We want the Department of Transport to get on with the works without delay, and publish a timetable that would give Devon residents and visitors to the county confidence that the works will be undertaken.’
Following on from conversations with members and other businesses in our area we were asked to lobby our local MP regarding the disrupted use of the Link Road during July and beyond. A copy of the letter received from Peter Heaton-Jones MP can be found here.
