THE time has now come to voice my opinion on the appalling state of the infrastructure in and around Wisbech.
It only takes one small section of roadworks on one of the limited access roads to cause utter chaos.
It now takes at least 30mins to get in or out of the south side of the town.
Even when the roadworks are complete I cannot see this improving.
Now is the time to take action! Both retail and industrial sites are getting bigger with the only access being Cromwell road and Weasenham lane.
I have noted an increase in the number of accidents on Weasenham lane in the last year and think it is only a matter of time before there is a major one involving youngsters at the school
- 1 Main road through Wisbech town centre shut after serious crash
- 2 Middlesbrough couple found in Cambs with drugs worth around £37,000
- 3 Can you answer these 10 GCSE questions designed for 16-year-olds?
- 4 Lorry breaks down on A47 near Wisbech
- 5 EastEnders star Adam Woodyatt ‘to work at restaurant in Cambridgeshire’
- 6 Princess Anne waves from Range Rover after landing in Wisbech
- 7 Family pay tribute to brothers, 13 and 17, killed in horror BMW crash
- 8 Eye burglar smashed doors with brick and stole jewellery and chocolate

A slip road and flyover of the bypass at the site of the disused glasshouse near New Bridge Lane connecting to Boleness Road, Algores Way and Salters Way and also joining the roundabout near Tesco`s garage would greatly reduce the pressure on Cromwell road and Elm High Road.
Parking in the town is also becoming problem for both workers and shoppers.
This could be solved when the college moves to March by making part of the site into a multi-storey car park for long stay with a foot bridge over the Churchill road (again another safety factor for youngsters attending school) to the town centre.
