Last week’s letter stating that the A1 from Grantham to Colsterworth is too dangerous because of lack of adequate traffic management is spot on.
But we won’t get a reduced speed limit, for the reason given when we were fighting for a reduced limit on the A607 at Denton - “There haven’t been enough deaths yet!”
And the filter lanes, to allow speed to be built up before joining the main carriageway, won’t be extended due to EU rules as I was told when I complained about the ones installed at the Gonerby Moor works. I pointed out they were far too short for safe acceleration and was told: “They meet EU regulations.”
