Bill Cash MP demands Highway Agency extend A50 noise barrier

Press release 24/08/09       

 
In response to the news that the A50 noise barrier will not be extended fully across Blythe Bridge, Bill Cash MP said:
 
“It is improper for the Highways Agency to have written to Blythe Bridge residents informing them that an improved noise barrier would be installed, only for many residents to later find out it does not include them at all. Many have now been left in a position whereby they have no noise protection and they are forced to put up with the constant noise from the A50.
 
“I support my constituents who want the installation of the new sound barrier fencing alongside their road to be extended to include their properties in Chartley Close, Sutherland Crescent, Meadow Close and neighbouring roads in Blythe Bridge.
 
“There has been immense distress caused to many who have discovered that the insulated fencing that has been installed part way along the A50 will not be continued past their properties. I have written to the Chief Executive of the Highways Agency and also given him a petition on behalf of many local Blythe Bridge residents demanding that the sound barrier fencing be extended to include their properties.”
