Dear Leicestershire County Council,
Approx. 5 years ago when The Hub was built the roundabout at this crossroads was replaced with traffic lights and now further expenditure is planned in an attempt to relieve the congestion it created.
1) What was the full cost of replacing the roundabout with traffic lights c 2013?
2) What is the nature and anticipated cost of the improvement scheme being planned now?
3) As the intention is to improve traffic flow, what quantifiable measures will be used to assess alternative proposals and ultimately whether of not the scheme finally implemented is successful?
There is no point in spending large sums of money if a demonstrable benefit cannot be achieved.
