Dismay over link road scheme

THE decision to build a link road would rank high in a Guinness Book of Missed Opportunities.

Better ways of approaching local transport issues have been put forward many times.

There should be no more roads unless they are shown to be absolutely essential.

We could be destroying the world and should be seeking new ways of doing things. It may be we are already finding them, but not here, evidently.

I am dismayed by this decision. Some will call this emotional prejudice.

Perhaps they are right - how great the prejudice fuelled by political pressure, personal prestige and potential profits?
