When this junction was originally built, the authorities didn’t agree to an exit to and from Coventry, because the local road infrastructure couldn’t cope. The only thing that’s changed since then is a substantial increase in the volume of traffic. With little or no improvements to the road infrastructure around Sapcote, Stoney Stanton and Burbage.
For some of us, the opportunity to travel to and from Coventry at junction 2 would be very convenient – However, without significant improvements to the roads around our villages, we’ll see huge congestion and increased traffic on our already overloaded village roads. We’ll also see commuters from other villages using us as a shortcut to the motorway.
