Campaigners: Expressway needs cancelling, not reviewing

A review into the Oxford to Cambridge Expressway is being promised by the Conservatives, if they get back into power.

The road could cut through Aylesbury Vale, but is proving controversial so far, with the Tories saying they would look at alternatives should they get back into power.

Campaigners say the scheme doesn't need a review, it needs cancelling.

A spokesperson for the No Expressway group said:

"This is an encouraging first step and sounds as though they’re listening. But a review if they get a majority? How much faith should we have in such a review given what’s happened with HS2? They don’t need to review it, they need to cancel it.

"This does not talk about electrification of East West Rail - something we’ve all been pushing for and is key for the environment."

The Lib Dems and Labour say they would invest in public transport should they get elected.
