De-Trunk the A46

This petition had 92 supporters

Please sign our Petition to de-trunk this dangerous stretch of road, reducing the amount of HGV's on it, making it a safer place to travel, reduce congestion and the risk of accidents.

Highways England have highlighted the issues the A46 between junction 18 and Bath, as follows:

  • "The single carriageway section of the A46 suffers from congestion and this is expected to increase";
  • "The A46 is narrow and not suitable for HGVs, leading to long diversion routes.  Some sections of the route are in need of surface repair.  It also suffers with geological stability issues";
  • "The Cold Ashton junction already suffers from congestion and delays in peak periods.  This is likely to get worse as traffic demand increases";
  • "Safety issues are also of concern on the A46 at Hartley Bends"  (2 motorists have lost their lives here and there are collisions causing injuries on a weekly basis).

So, having highlighted all of the above, what is Highways England going to do about it?

Your signature could greatly influence and speed up their decision  in sorting out this very dangerous road.

Thank you.
