I would like to propose that a bypass be built around Loughborough. As I’m sure very many of you are aware, during the peak hours of the early morning rush hour and between 4.30pm and 6.00pm the traffic along Epinal Way and the A6004 is quite frankly scandalous. It is bumper to bumper everyday and I believe this is because of many people who pass through Loughborough to get to the Hathern & Kegworth areas, or in the other direction towards Quorn and Barrow upon Soar for example. Should a bypass be constructed, I feel that the traffic flow through the centre of Loughborough would be reduced massively, and significantly reduce the time it takes to get from one of end Loughborough, to the other – which can often take 45 minutes for a 3.5 mile journey.
