Reading Bridge - share your views
The following resolution was overwhelmingly passed:
a) In the context of the climate emergency a car-based solution to a car-based
problem that would pour thousands of cars and HGVs into Oxfordshire is totally
inappropriate and should a new bridge be built it should be restricted to public
transport, cyclists and pedestrians;
b) Notwithstanding the above, if a car-based solution were to be pursued, the proposed
bridge and necessary mitigation measures (i.e. improvements to the Oxfordshire
road network) should not be considered as two separate projects, but as one single
project in order that the benefits, disadvantages and costs of the complete scheme
can be holistically assessed.
County Councillor David Bartholomew was asked to communicate this to the MPs’
Summit Meeting on the Third Reading Bridge in March.
