The roads around and within Newark feel the strain when one road becomes closed eg by an accident on the A1 or flooding. These affects are felt to the extreme at rush hour. Examples for improvement: there needs to be better connected roads out of the industrial estate onto the A1, dual carriageway for the A46 round the town and the A617 to Kelham have flood defences built along to prevent lengthy road closures during the winter months. Newark often feels neglected as a town and locals don’t often feel that the council looks after the local area. Even with the most simple things such as: filling in pot holes or fixing street lights.
