We need Shores Green slip roads
10:00am Wednesday 10th October 2012 in Letters
Sir – Millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money were spent on the Cogges Link Road public inquiry: how depressing, therefore, to read (Gazette, September 26) that the county council appears to be ignoring the inspector’s findings.
Yes, the link road was rejected but at the same time the Shores Green upgrade was examined exhaustively, by experts and in detail, over 18 days.
The inspector's report is long and meticulous but by now even our hard-pressed county councillors should have found time to read it. It makes the case for the Shores Green slip-roads.
We do not need more time and money wasted on thinking up alternative schemes: we need this road improvement.
For Witney’s sake, please just get on with it.
Dr Katy Jennison, New Yatt Road, Witney
