Good Evening Charles,

I hope you are well, and have had a nice weekend.

I am sorry to hear you are still finding visibility poor at the junction. I have spoken to the site team, and the heras fencing will be moved further back from the road where possible.

Our Site Manager does use the junction on a daily basis in his car, and will review the situation daily. Any residents who are concerned over navigating the junction to go South have the option to go South into Chipping Warden on Appletree Lane, or through Upper Boddington and Byfield to get North. These options are also available if they need to go straight across.

If you require any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Many Thanks

Carley Richards

Community Liaison Officer

Subject : Heras fencing Aston le Walls / A361

Hi Nisha,

The Heras fencing that has been placed on the verge of the A361 at the Aston le Walls crossroads makes it difficult to see the traffic coming from Daventry.

I did talk to a person at the crossroads to voice my concerns and he took my details.

Even myself in a Ford Kuga found it difficult, you have to effectively try to look through the Heras fencing.

The person I spoke who said it might be placed thus because of the support poles falling into the ditch behind.

Surely for safety sake, the fence should therefore be behind the ditch and supported on the field flat.

There are many accidents at this crossroads and I feel the Heras fencing is not going to help.

The timing of the temporary traffic lights has been off too, not enough time being given to clear the crossroads before another set are given green to go, it is a four-way light system.

Please can you get someone to investigate both issues.

2018 May 23rd:

After wide publicity, approximately 50 people attended the village hall for a presentation by HS2 and their contractors.

This was organised to allow HS2 to tell us the latest state of their planning on how and when the rail line would be built. This was to also include the proposed changes to the A361/Welsh Road junction.
