An Isle of Wight Councillor is calling for work on St Mary’s Roundabout in Newport to be scrapped.

Julie Jones-Evans and five others have joined together to force an extra meeting of the local authority.

The debate will ask,

“THAT council agrees to abandon the proposed works at St Mary’s Junction until after improvement works have been completed for the Coppins Bridge junction.”

The extra-ordinary meeting will take place at 5pm, on 25 September in the Council Chamber at County Hall in Newport.

As Isle of Wight Radio reported yesterday, Newport and Carisbrooke Parish Council has raised concerns about the impact of the work.
