Vulnerable road users in danger

Sent to Warwickshire County Council less than a minute later

As a result of works for HS2 the Long Itchington Road is closed by Burnt Heath Farm. This section of road forms part of national cycle route 41 and due to the closure the VRU's (including equestrians and runners) are being diverted down a dangerous section of the Fosse Way. Having spoken to the contractors I have been told that they cannot form a way through the works as WCC Highways are insisting that a closure requires NO through traffic of any time. Further to this the A425 at Southam is about to be closed for a prolonged period. This in turn will send additional vehicles in large numbers down side roads which VRU's use on a daily basis.

Can you please explain why it is not possible for access routes through the works area to be allowed by the Contractors please given they place the blame on your edicts. Surely given the amount of closures and works to be expected in the next few years there should be allowances made within works areas for VRU throughput.
