Anna Soubry MP writes: Bramcote campaigner Tony Smith has taken his campaign to improve safety on the A52 to Parliament. Tony met roads minister Jesse Norman and Highways England officials following a spate of accidents and fatalities on the road.
“I am pleased that Highways England is conducting a full review of speed and safety on the A52 between Bramcote Island and the QMC,” said Tony. “They will report back in late August with proposals and want to work with me and local residents to find the best way to make the road safe”.
Broxtowe’s MP Anna Soubry also attended the meeting and added, “Tony continues to work on this campaign and it was a pleasure to join the meeting and to hear that real progress is being made. We also raised the issue of pedestrian safety on Bramcote Island as well as the dangers for vehicles exiting on Town Street.” Highways England undertook to improve existing road markings and review safety issues at the roundabout.
Average speed cameras will be amongst measures being considered.
