Dear National Highways as someone faked betrending to be national highways and replied so you couldn't reply. this scheme were I want 2 lanes going over this bridge so when going up to the southbound sliproad make it give way or make it merge like a slip roads do I do want 2 lanes over this bridge but there's not a lot of room you have to wide loads on this bridge to make it wider but you need to move the kerb and stuff to make the lane what randomly merges which is a couple centimetres behind me we don't need 3 lanes but extend the sliproad because it would be harder joining the carriage way and add an SOS area ( emergency refuse area) to. and new road surface and new LED lighting. I hope this scheme gets built then,
