Following on from the consultation, the Exceat Replacement Bridge Project feedback has been posted on ESCC website. Over 1000 responses were received!
You can read the full feedback here:
I’m quite disappointed to see that little attention has been paid to the comments / concerns we highlighted. There is also confirmation that the project doesn’t take into account the causeway, it is for the bridge only. As a small positive the road around the bridge will be slowed to 30mph from 60mph which will hopefully improve safety.
It does amuse me that the council feels that a controlled crossing will ‘spoil the natural landscape’… personally I can’t see the logic.
The planning application should be submitted in April next year. At this point we will have another opportunity to comment.
Have a read and let me know what you think!
