Nuneaton News 11th September 2015 – Marcus Jones Column

“On my way home from working in Westminster last week I popped into one of the consultation events over the proposal to open the Bermuda Bridge. There is great concern over this project and I can fully understand why. I am convinced that not all of the factors that ought to be considered by Warwickshire County Council are being taken into account.

Setting aside the imposition that opening the bridge would put on Bermuda residents, there are a number of other issues which are not being properly considered. Before the county council goes any further we need to see the full details of the Borough Plan proposals. In any calculation of the number of vehicles likely to use the bridge we must also determine whether the opening of the bridge would, in fact, speed up journeys from other parts of West Nuneaton, as is being claimed.

I am also disappointed with the borough council, the project being proposed by the county council is a direct result of the borough council requesting it to be made the priority infrastructure project. With parts of Nuneaton gridlocked with traffic at times and with significant building of new houses underway, there needs to be a solution that looks at the whole town and what the needs are for now and the future.

If we don’t we will just be displacing problems from one part of an area to another.Through the consultation process I fully intend to make clear my own views over the bridge project. In my view it will not be the utopian solution that is being presented”

“At long last, however, a site at Bermuda Industrial Estate has become available, and we have made an offer to buy the land and buildings situated there. It is, as far as the council is concerned, the perfect location, being situated between Nuneaton and Bedworth, away from any residential properties and having easy access on to the by-pass and main roads. This will mean our vehicles will be able to fan out in different directions, , so avoiding the present situation where lorries and vans all have to pass down the same residential streets to set off on their journeys to all points across the borough.”

“On returning from Parliament, I met with a group of residents about the Bermuda Bridge project to discuss their campaign against the proposal. I remain resolute in my support for the residents of Bermuda and other parts of Arbury and Stockingford who have great concern over this project. We need to improve the traffic situation in the Arbury area badly, but I am not convinced the bridge is the answer.”

 “We wanted a community that was alive. There was a heart there and we wanted to maintain that and build around it. It was not in line with the thinking at the time, many thought we were bonkers, but there was a kernel there, that with the right nurturing could grow into something special. It was sustainability before the term was widely used.”
