“LADY Godiva” will lead Halton residents on a protest march against plans for the Heysham M6 Link which objectors say would see an extra 3,400 vehicles per day travelling through the village centre.

Proposals for the bypass, which are due to be re-submitted next month, include a slip road connecting Halton Road to the proposed Shefferlands roundabout, increasing traffic in Church Brow and Halton Road from 4,600 to 8,000 vehicles per day, but reducing traffic in Low Road, Foundry Lane and over Denny Beck Bridge.

Lancashire County Council said the plans would reduce traffic flows through the village by 2,800 vehicles per day on average, but Mike Jacob, who lives in High Road, said the plans would have a serious impact on the quality of life in Halton.
