OCC now opposes the Oxford to Cambridge Expressway!

Good News for the Environment at last

Oxford County Council (OCC) now OPPOSE the building of the Oxford to Cambridge Expressway, provided the East West Rail Link DOES go ahead! This is a complete about face.

  • They say they “will work with Highways England on the development of the Vision for the English Economic Heartland and the Oxford to Cambridge Arc, but the Expressway flies in the face of Oxfordshire’s commitment to reduce the use of the car.”
  • They will not support the building of the expressway no matter which route is chosen.
  • A railway line will not have the environmental impact of a road cutting across the countryside.

The entire text of the letter the Leader of OCC wrote to the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government will be on the local news page of blewburyclimateaction.com
