There is just over a week left to have your say on one of the biggest decisions in North Devon for a generation. The North Devon Link Road consultation ends on July 29 and people have been urged to have their say on the first major improvements since the road opened in 1988. Devon County Council is asking for opinions on two options the first, a £35million package of junction improvements between Bideford and Tiverton, including danger spots such as Westleigh, Landkey and West Buckland junctions. The second option weighs in at £150m and would improve the junctions plus see the creation of overtaking lanes on most stretches between Bideford and South Molton. It focuses on this 20-mile stretch because the council says traffic flows are lower between South Molton and Tiverton. Barnstaple county councillor Brian Greenslade called on people to have their say before the consultation closes on Friday, July 29. It is important to obtain a large response to this consultation stage and I urge everyone to consider the questions and give a view, he said. Fremington county councillor Frank Biederman said this really was a once in a generation opportunity. I think people were hoping for dual carriageway: clearly thats not going to happen, he said. But any money we can get from central government to do as much as we possibly can is fantastic and showing the community are behind it is the best way of doing that.
