Cold Shoulder Given to Chancellor’s Motorway Plans05 Dec 2008

A South East orbital route that would improve cross regional links and ease pressure on the M25. This would also include a South Coast route;

  • Additional links in the South East/Midlands/North West corridor to relieve pressure on existing Motorways;
  • An extension from the basic core network to peripheral parts of the country, especially where there are major ports, and;
  • Additional East/West links, notably in the North and East Midlands to provide links between the M6 and A1(M) and centres such as Cambridge and the Midlands.
