Evesham Journal: Transport minister to visit Worcester tomorrow Transport minister to visit Worcester tomorrow

THE Minister of State for Transport will visit Worcester to see how the Faithful City is recovering after the floods.

Baroness Kramer is visiting Worcestershire tomorrow and will meet with representatives from all agencies who led the multi-agency response to the flooding and the recovery since the water receded at Worcester Bridge.

She will also hear more about the plans to protect the county in the future, in particular around any infrastructure improvements which could be made in Worcestershire's Strategic Economic Plan.

These include the possibility of infrastructure changes at New Road to raise the level of road and alleviate future flooding and the dependence on Carrington Bridge.

I'm guessing she won't be going anywhere near the Ketch Island to see the 'improvements'.

Or the DIS-IMPROVEMENTS.
Or a visit when the traffic is jammed for miles back.

She shouldn't bother trying to get in to or around Worcester as she'll either be stuck in a traffic jam or involved in an accident thanks to Worcester's badly designed and dangerous roads. But is she must come to Worcester, perhaps she could go to County Hall instead and ask the highways department why they are so incompetent, leaving us with possibly one of the worst managed, designed and maintained road network in the country.

The chaos around the Whittington roundabout seems terrible, the traffic was queued up early evening back as far as the eastern orbital. Perhaps the Transport Minister could visit at rush hour.
