A426 Bus Corridor Project

We the undersigned petition the Council to object to Leicestershire County Council’s A426 Bus Corridor Project and we call for Leicestershire County Council not to approve and implement the Project and not to implement Bus Lanes on Leicester Road and Lutterworth Road.

This Petition has been called for by residents from Glen Parva and other road users to capture and inform Leicestershire County Council of the level of opposition Glen Parva residents and others have for Leicestershire County Council’s A426 Bus Corridor Project. The project is planned to be implemented in 2013 even though local residents do not want bus lanes on Leicester Road and Lutterworth Road, Glen Parva; In response to low demand for buses in the area, Arriva have cut bus services from 8 to 6 buses an hour at certain times of day and at others, there are only between 2 to 4 buses an hour, in addition LCC have also terminated the LCC funded 73 service; The residents of Glen Parva consider the benefits of the project are far outweighed by the long term negative impact the project would have on the community, the environment and house prices and it is considered that £4.988 million spent on a project nobody wants at a time of austerity, cuts in council services and redundancies is not a good use of tax payers’ money.
