We the people of Markyate in Hertfordshire respectfully request that the traffic lights on the A5183 that control the junction with the High Street and Luton Road are immediately removed.
Why is this important?
This junction has over many years been the scene of multiple accidents. One fatal. Over the last three years residents have written continually to our MP Mike Penning, County Councillors David Lloyd and now Terry Douris. On every occasion there have been promises of reviews yet nothing has yet been done. On a recent occasion where the lights were switched off for over a week there were no accidents, no build up of traffic on either Luton Road or the High Street, bringing with it significant improvements in air quality at peak times.
