North Wales needs a motorway -the people say NO! (A55/A494)

We, the undersigned believe ALL current proposals by Transport Wales to widen the A494/A55 \"across the top of Wales\" to virtual motorway standard, are flawed in concept, presentation and impact on the health and quality-of-life of the local people who live nearbye. We believe that an immediate HALT should be called to any existing plans pending a comprehensive transport review which properly considers all options (including major RAIL-FREIGHT improvements) which might REDUCE the usage and pollution of existing roads and which acknowledges the most recent research in respect of Health Impact, carbon-footprint and sustainability.


In these times of heightened public sensitivity to the threats posed by global-warming, airborne pollution and conservation of resources, we have to urgently apply fresh thinking to our transport needs. Our under-utilised coastal rail system must be brought up to 21 century standards

    7 years ago Comments: I live in Manchester and visit North Wales 2 or 3 times a year. Sometimes I travel by train (eg to Llandudno). The route from Manchester to Hollyhead could be greatly improved and could for example be electrified allowing fast Pendolino trains to serve the route from London to Hollyhead. Connecting rail services should also be improved as well as local bus services.
