NO SURPRISE ON A453 SETBACK
The A453 widening was almost ready to go when Labour came into office in 1997. One of the first things they did was to cancel the programme. Thirteen years later the Tories get into power and the same thing happens once again.
Yet it looks as if the stupid ‘white elephant’ tram extension is going ahead at double the cost of the A453 widening programme. What are our politicians thinking of?
It is a load of nonsense. Nottingham must be the only major city in the country with a motorway link that’s single carriageway (don’t mention junctions 25 and 26 – like some of your readers have).
They (the politicians) might have had the grace and sense to await the result of the public enquiry. Forty years we have been waiting for this and now it looks like we shall have to wait a long while longer. I am absolutely disgusted.
