Stratford-upon-Avon South Western Relief Road – The Penrod Route
Mock-up of a possible alternative route for the SWRR Stratford-upon-Avon South Western Relief Road.
A proper bypass for the next 60 years not a relief road for 10 years
The Penrod RouteA possible alternative route taking the traffic further out from Stratford, away from housing on Luddington Road, away from Stratford Racecourse, away from floodplain, a more sensible junction on the Evesham road, easier to continue to Alcester road, easier connection to new Long Marston village, no reason for new village traffic to have to go through Clifford Chambers.
Here are just 10 reasons why the Penrod Route for The SWRR may be seen as a better route.
