Commercial Impact

The current road system is overloaded (see Road Report above), and most local residents will recall the weekly, if not daily, problems faced accessing the town at peak hours, or when there is an accident /roadwork’s, especially on the A1/A46 backing traffic up through the centre of Newark.

Any increases in traffic mean additional risks of accidents, and, with the “Growth Point Plan” adding a potential 7,000 new homes the residential traffic alone will cause increases in traffic load across the entire local road network.

Add to that the much increased movements, from both sites, affecting major routes, and the risks of accident, additional wear and tear on roads, and the carrying of airborne/traffic borne pollutants into residential areas will not be acceptable.
