A46 SOUND DEMONSTRATION

The following is an extract from a letter received by the Parish Council from Highways England regarding a sound demonstration of the potential noise issues created by the forthcoming flyover.

INVITATION TO THE A46 COVENTRY JUNCTIONS SOUND DEMONSTRATION

As you are aware, Highways England is developing a scheme to upgrade the A46/A428 Binley junction. One of the key concerns for residents and stakeholders within Binley Woods has been the potential noise impact of the scheme.

As a result of these concerns, we have revised our proposals to include a solid barrier on the flyover and approach ramps which will benefit properties within Binley Woods.

To demonstrate the likely difference in road traffic sound levels we have developed a sound demonstration which will allow members of the public to hear predicted sound levels, both with and without our proposals, from various points within Binley Woods.

The sound demonstration will be hosted in our ‘Engagement Van’, the location and timings of the event are as follows:

 

Highways England Engagement Van Roseycombe Pub Car Park Rugby Road, Binley Woods, CV3 2AY

Thursday 24 October 13:00 – 20:00

Friday 25 October 10:00 – 20:00

 

A postcard is being sent to all residential addresses within Binley Woods to promote the sound demonstration and timings however we would welcome your support in informing interested Binley Woods residents and stakeholders.

BOGUS PHONE CALLS

All,

Please see below a warning from a resident that I received today

Subject: Bogus Phone Call

Hi Steve,

Just lately I have been receiving phone calls from my ‘service provider’. The woman, American accent, talks about my IP address being compromised, and action needed to protect it etc etc.   Obviously a scam.

This morning at 07. 28, I had a similar, but more soundingly plausible from an English man purporting to represent Offcom. I played along and then a woman, Indian accent, proceeded to go through her patter. When I asked , how did I know that she represented Offcom, and then requested a letter confirming the problem, the phone went dead.   The phone number they used was 02088513072, when dialled was unobtainable.

Obviously a scam, but quite a convincing one. It took me a while to decide that it was in fact a scam.   Others may not be so wary. I hope that you can us this incident to warn others.

DOG FOULING

I have had a report from a resident in the central part of Heather Rd that a dog(s) has been allowed to foul in the area just outside their drive on three occasions in the last week. This is not the only occurrence in the village, and the Parish Council are regularly receiving complaints of such incidents. This appears to be worse during the winter months, particularly when it is dark or the weather inclement.

I know it is easier said than done, but if anyone should see this fouling taking place or they have any further information on the offenders, please phone the Community Wardens at Rugby Borough Council on 08000968000 or visit their website at the following link.
