Highways have just finished spending a lot of money on the West Knapton Junction on the A64. New wooden barriers were erected to protect the verges from being driven on. This morning, 15th August, travellers have damaged the barrier and driven on to the grass verge, set up camp, and lit fires. PLEASE TAKE ACTION TO REMOVE THEM AND MAKE THEM PAY FOR THE DAMAGE.

  • Although the travellers have moved on, there is still rubbish left behind from fires - burnt wood and ashes. Also two broken barriers have not been mended. What is the point in spending several million pounds of taxpayer money if the finished product is not maintained in good order. Also the grass verges have not been re-seeded, we now have large areas of rough looking scrub with weeds - lovely.
