Traffic light controls are now operating regularly on Dry Drayton Road near the A14, to allow for plant regularly crossing that road. This runs from August 2017 and is likely to continue for some months, though this process may cease over the winter.  Highways England tell us "This will have restrictions on use during peak hours and priority at those times will be given to road users. At other times plant crossing the roadway will be given priority but will be carefully managed to prevent unnecessary delays to road users."

If drivers encounter difficulties with this crossing, or find any undue amount of mud on the road at the crossing point, please let the Parish Council know of this.
