What is the impact on my Street?

The Bermuda Connection will have a large adverse affect on many streets within West Nuneaton and particularly the Arbury area as traffic diverts from existing route seeking to get to the new link road to the A444 and M6. This will create significant road safety, environmental and social issues for a number of streets that will either form part of the new ‘western relief road’ or will be come parallel ‘rat runs’ where traffic speed down to avoid significant traffic queues created by the proposals.

The Bermuda Bridge Action Group have reviewed the evidence prepared to date by Warwickshire County Council and have found many technical flaws in the project and damning statements within the feasibility studies and business case that support the project. As a result of this work BBAG have produced ‘Street Guides’ detailing the likely impact of the scheme on the new ‘rat runs’ that will be created as a result of the scheme. These briefing notes contain the personal views of a professionally qualified design consultant with experience of highway link design, traffic modelling and road accident remedial schemes on the likely impacts of the scheme.
