The Green Party opposes any plans to build a road across the Severn Valley north of Shrewsbury:
It would be hugely expensive taking at least £21m from Shropshire Council's budget, plus 100% of any overspend on the project, at a time of very tight budgetary constraint. The money would be better spent on improvements to public transport and encouraging more people to walk, cycle or even car-share.
It wouldn't work with any "relief" being temporary at best. Not only would congestion return soon after completion, but the increased traffic generated would further increase carbon emissions at a time when we urgently need to reduce them.
It would damage an important and unique landscape and its wildlife.
