Should the A453 be named?

A453

Nottingham City Council, along with Rushcliffe Borough Council and North West Leicestershire District Council, are considering a proposal to name the A453.

The A453 is nearing the end of a £150million improvement scheme by the Highways Agency and if the proposals go ahead, the new name could tie in with the opening of the new road.

The road, which runs between Nottingham and the M1 through all three council areas, has attracted the attention of the family of Sean Upton from Beeston, who believe there is an opportunity to name the road in remembrance of the 453 British service personnel, including their son Sean, who died in the Afghanistan conflict. Others have suggested the new road should honour those who gave their lives in all conflicts and, some believe the road should remain nameless.
