A525 campaign plans hit the headlines

Home » Latest News » A525 campaign plans hit the headl

Today's Evening Sentinel's front page lead story describes in detail the problems Audlem suffers as a result of Heavy Goods Vehicles passing through the village. The story focuses on how Kinsey Heath resident Kate Parkes was forced off the road in the village centre when a French truck scraped the side of her car which had her 2-year old daughter as a passenger. Kate was again forced off the road by a foreign truck at Sandy Lane only two days later.

The report covers the document the Audlem Parish Plan group is pulling together which will be sent to Transport Minister Douglas Alexander, with the help of MP Stephen O'Brien, arguing that the A525 from Woore to Burleydam should be de-primed. The submission follows last year's Parish Plan questionnaire where residents identified the HGV's as the biggest problem facing Audlem. A working party is gathering evidence, including incidents such those suffered by Kate, and plans to submit the detailed proposal in the next two months.

This week's Nantwich Guardian also carries an extensive story on the Parish Plan group's work and the accident involving Kate and the French truck driver. You can find details of Kate's determination to get the trucker's details when he failed to stop on Audlem Online's news for 5th July: 'French trucker meets his match in Kate.'
