WE were quite pleased when we heard there was to be a bypass at Papworth Everard, but little did we realise the impact it would have on the village of Yelling.

Yelling is now used as a rat-run for heavy goods vehicles and large vans. The traffic has increased four-fold and is causing mega-problems in the village.

The road approaching Toseland has a very dangerous corner at which I have personally witnessed seven accidents, one which was fatal.

It has always been a bad road for speeding on, but the massive increase in traffic has made it much worse. I always understood that a bypass was to ease traffic through villages, not to increase it.

Surely it would be cost-effective to put a weight limit in place and also some form of traffic calming.
