Bruntinthorpe Proving Ground / Village Traffic

Mon, 11 Jun 2018 17:15 by Lynn Cosgrove

Andy Sharp has been in discussion with Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground regarding vehicles taking short cuts through the village in order to bypass the Crossroads.

As a result they have sent the following letter to all staff: More »

To all staff who drive to and from work,

As C Walton Ltd has grown, and with the subsequent need for more staff on our Bruntingthorpe site, there is now a greater amount of traffic on the local roads at peak travelling time. This is especially noticeable in the evening between 5 and 6pm and the most obvious traffic problems appear to be at the Fleckney junction on the A5199. This often means traffic delays at this junction and recently it has resulted in a number of people leaving the road before the junction and taking a short cut through the Shearsby village and this is now resulting in complaints from residents of the village.

Whilst we recognise that it is completely legal to drive through the village, we would ask all staff to avoid taking any short cut through the village. It is vitally important that we keep good relationships with local residents and that they continue to support C Walton Ltd, especially whilst we continue to operate the site at the current level. Hence why it is so important that staff heed our request.

Please note that we will be doing periodic checks in the village, as well as monitoring resident feedback, so please do avoid the village. We will not tolerate blatant, and repeated, disregard of this request. Avoiding the junction and driving through the village will only save a couple of minutes from your journey and so we would ask you to be patient whilst the site is so busy.

They are aware we will also monitor the situation so if you become aware of vehicles regularly taking short cuts through the village please can you let the Clerk have details so he can collate details and liaise with Andy. Thank you. » Less
