🚗🚨🛣️Say No to New Roads!🛣️🚨🚗

17th July 2023 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Oxfordshire County Council’s plan for the destructive and expensive HIF1 road scheme has been rescheduled to be discussed by their Planning & Regulation Committee on Monday, 17th July starting at 1pm. Groups opposing it will be making their views known! Bring placards, but no XR branding please, as this is not an XR-organised event.

Among the many impacts, construction of this road scheme would generate 514,000 tonnes of CO2. [OCC’s own total annual operations generate about 13,000 tonnes]. The scheme is a major financial gamble by OCC involving borrowing £30M and will also depend on future funds from housing developers (which could be spent on many better ways). At a time when road quality is deteriorating and public transport is facing cuts we should be spending to improve our existing infrastructure rather than on destructive new schemes.
