North west relief road - cancel
We the undersigned petition the council to cancel the construction of the north west relief road because of the weight of evidence against its effectiveness, and undertakes instead a rigorous process of scrutiny/scoping of non-road building alternatives that can be demonstrated will reduce air pollution, carbon and congestion in Shrewsbury and will contribute to improved transport facilities across Shropshire.
There is now a large body of evidence from similar road building schemes over 20+ years to show that the NWRR will not reduce congestion, will not attract new commerce and will hugely increase carbon output. An in-depth scoping exercise of a comprehensive Shropshire-wide bus service, segregated cycle lanes and good walking facilities will scrutinise an alternative approach that has been shown to be much more effective in achieving the stated aims.
This ePetition runs from 16/12/2019 to 19/06/2020.
