Burton Upon Trent needs a much improved road pattern to include a western and eastern relief road together with a third bridge over the Trent.Eventually this should become an outer ring road enabling traffic wishing to avoid the town centre to do so and traffic diverted from the A 38 (on occasions when that road is closed) can do so without grid-locking the town.
Burton was virtually a Victorian new town, & has large areas of terraced housing which is coming to the end of its life unless considerable expenditure is made to renovate and improve the built stock and environment.As Burton needs to improve its skills base and to retain its young residents this would be done by developing a university which would allow some of the vast Victorian brewery buildings to be reused for student housing and university teaching. It would assist in regenerating the Victorian areas and improve the image of the town and boost the arts & town centre and evening economy. A scheme like that in Lincoln!
