How Can We Make Our Roads Safer?

Road safety is one of the top concerns of residents across Rutland, Melton, the Vale and Harborough Villages.

There are dangerous junctions. Some of them, like the A606 junction with Six Hills Lane, are being improved following my intervention.

There are also too many instances of speeding through villages – and the noise that comes from it, especially from motorbikes.

And there are schools which are experiencing serious problems with speeding.

I want to work with our Councils to ensure that our roads are as safe as possible in our communities.

So I’m asking you to tell me which roads and junctions worry you most.
