Moggerhanger A603 Highway Petition

Over recent years traffic has significantly increased through Moggerhanger making the A603 a dangerous road for pedestrians because the pavements are too narrow.

In addition, there has been an increase in excessive road noise because lorries are using the A603 as a cut through to the A421 from the A1. This has the knock on affect of local roads needing to be repaired more frequently and endangering lives due to the excess speed and volume of the additional traffic. Whilst there is a speed camera at the northwest end of the village this only slows traffic in that immediate area.

We're asking Moggerhanger Parish Council to request the Highways Department at Central Bedfordshire Council to introduce a weight limit of less than 7.5 tonnes to prevent large lorries from passing through the village.
