NATURE (Wildlife - animals and plants) HAS DECLINED IN THE UK BY OVER 60% in the LAST 50 YEARS - VOTE AGAINST POLITICAL PARTIES WHO WANT TO 'BUILD EVERYWHERE' - FIRST THE WILD ANIMALS THEN MANKIND!

MIRA and what it means to us......

The war time RAF NUNEATON actually standing on the Leicestershire side of the Watling Street (A5 T) , after it's official closure and sale in the early 1960 became the Motor Industry Research Authority test ground and where Halifax's and Wimpeys , later even Transport Command Dakotas took off , Rovers, Vauxhalls and Austins sped along .

Now after some considerable changes the major testing station is to become one of the premier vehicle testing stations in Europe.

Much more traffic will need to use the Watling Street and so major improvements , some long overdue, need to be made in the Nuneaton and Hinckley area.

Here are two areas likely to be the subject of some discussion and RSAHinckley believes you, the people concerned, should know the facts :

Long Shoot: work began 6th October 2014 (for a clearer plan email us now)

Dodwells Bridge Roundabout will be improved and a number of sets of traffic lights added (work expected in November 2014)

A Toucan crossing will be placed on A47 (Dodwells Rd) eliminating a very dangerous place for pedestrians (see plan) Long Shoot Junction will remain much the same but only two lanes leaving The Long Shoot onto Watling Street (A5 T) however a toucan (cycle and pedestrian) crossing will be created across the road at lanes at approach to junction from Higham direction. One lane only going in the Hinckley direction the offside lane to Nuneaton. Email us (see contact us below) and request the plans now.

We regret the reduction in clarity of these plans optically converted from .word files to A4 .jpg .


UPDATES WILL FOLLOW TO THIS SITE IN NOVEMBER 2015 .
