After a lot of campaigning and a lot of shouting, knocking on doors and drinking plenty of tea, the dangerous A414 Mill Lane underpass is seeing a bit of action from the Highways Dept.

Work begins on dangerous underpass

Work begins on dangerous underpass

Today some workmen rolled up brandishing tree cutting equipment and got to work. They said they are scheduled to work on clearing the underpass overgrown shrubery now and on Monday, and they are clearing away the bushes all around the underpass on both sides.

The men told me that if in the meeting (due to happen any day now, that I’ve been invited to) they may get instructed to go further down towards Tesco.

The workers have seen our campaign and completely agree that we need more cleared, cameras and lights.
