Grantham Journal letter: A1 speed issue needs action to save lives

Have your say

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.”
