Make the A5 between Lutterworth and Smockington Hollow Safe

Make the A5 between Lutterworth and Smockington Hollow Safe

Make the section of the A5 between Smockington Hollow and Lutterworth safe by installing traffic calming measures to enable the people who use the road to do so safely.

Why is this important?

This section of the A5 has always been a black spot for serious accidents, but in recent months has become increasingly treacherous for locals and people passing through. There have been 3 serious accidents very recently, including a fatality on October 22nd.
Due to the expansion of the Logistics centre at Magna Park, Lutterworth, and the huge numbers of new houses being built in the area, the volume of traffic on this stretch of road can only increase, thereby making it ever more dangerous to turn onto.
The junctions at High Cross and Smockington Hollow are particularly dangerous, although any adjoining road along this stretch carries enormous risks.
