Longdendale Siege Committee members meet with local MP's
Let's hope these people realise that a bypass is not the answer. The obvious solution is a weight restriction on the A628 which would lead to heavy vehicles taking the M60/M62 route instead.
It was odd that I was only thinking about the bypass, which would be environmental vandalism on an epic scale, when I was at the highest point in Tameside yesterday. Then when I received the Advertiser I saw the article above and hence this post. From Wild Bank Hill (see the video below) you really can survey the proposed route in fine detail. To even contemplate building a motorway through that stunning landscape truly beggars belief. Let's be grateful to the determined campaigners who saved this piece of outstanding natural beauty for future generations.
