**This consultation is now closed**

Getting West Nuneaton Moving: Bermuda Connection is a proposed scheme focused on tackling congestion in and around West Nuneaton by creating a direct 1.3 mile highway link between West Nuneaton and Griff Roundabout.

This will require improvements being made to an existing bridge over the A444, currently unused by motor traffic, and connections from it to the adjoining highway at St George’s Way and The Bridleway.

Warwickshire County Council has set up a website with all of the plans and supporting documentation. You can view all of this information at www.warwickshire.gov.uk/bermudaconnection

A consultation is running from Friday 14th August until Friday 9th October.

You can access the consultation form here.

  1. This consultation is dishonest. The only way to respond is via a Survey Monkey which asked leading questions. Their is no alternative options, no details of expected traffic speeds on the new rat run, No consultation on speed restrictions, parking, or safer crossings. The consultation venues are biased away from locations harmed by the development. There is no ability to respond by post or email, no way to append diagrams or documents, no collection of personal details, no method to get receipt.

    You fail to mention the assumptions used in modelling or the fact that the benefits evaporate in the years after the rat tun is opened.

      The material presented in the consultation represent a honest, comprehensive and valid assessment of the proposed scheme at this preliminary stage.

      The proposed scheme being presented in the consultation is the only option
      being considered. Please view the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) section of the consultation material for insight on why other alternatives routes are not being considered.

      The preliminary design of the scheme includes measures to enhance road safety, e.g. shared pedestrian / cycle crossings. Further development of the road safety measures will be undertaken if the proposed scheme is progressed to detailed design and implementation stage, which will include consideration for speed restrictions and traffic signs.

      Local residents participating in the consultation are welcome to raise the need for speed restrictions, additional parking and further shared pedestrian / cycle crossings in their response the consultation for consideration.

      The Local Model Validation Report and Model Forecast report can be made available for interested parties to view, and have in fact already been made available to the Bermuda Bridge Action Group. The base model used was subject to an independent audit which can also be made available. Assumptions pertaining to the development of the model are contained within these modelling reports. It is clearly stated on the consultation documentation that journey time outputs are based on a 2018 forecast year.

      The benefits to the local community derived from the proposed scheme are extremely long term in nature, and will be further supported by the potential delivery of other schemes that also form part of the Nuneaton A444 Corridor Improvements Programme.
