‘The Expressway is an abomination. It will increase traffic, noise, pollution and ill health and worsen climate change’, said Chair of the No Expressway Alliance Hazel Dawe to the County Council on 2nd April. Every Tory county councillor then voted against opposing the Expressway and in favour of more consultation with the public on the principle of an Expressway before consulting on routes. This even though many of them acknowledged that NEA supporters had contacted them to express their opposition to the Expressway and claimed that they personally were against the Expressway.
If you are represented by a Tory county councillor you may wish to let them know that you are aware how they voted and do not approve.
