George Osborne has just given the go ahead for the Hastings & Bexhill link road. This now means its almost certainly going to go ahead, which is very sad news for our town indeed.
We know that people living on Bexhill road have a hard time with all the traffic rumbling through, but they did decide to live there. Is the building of another road going to really make a difference or is going to make it worse?
I would say much worse as in many example around the country and the world prove, the more roads you build, the more cars you get. What happens when the bypass hits full capacity? another road?
We would like to know why no alternatives to the transport problem are ever considered, such as putting frieght back on the railway network and reducing the cost of rail travel. This would take an enormous amount of disruptive, noisy, dirty and polluting traffic off our roads, this would be great for people living on Bexhill Road. Far better than a link road.
