Helen Goodman, MP, Shadow Minister for Foreign Affairs, is calling for Durham County Council and the Department of Transport to build a bypass at Toft Hill to stop HGVs going through the village
Why is this important?
The A68 that runs through Toft Hill is unsuitable for the volume of traffic and the type of vehicle using the road. There is a primary school on the road and there are issues of both traffic congestion and pollution. There have also been several serious road traffic accidents on the road.
