Good gods! What kind of daft decision is it to build 100 new homes in Eynsham without tackling the problem of the Swinford toll bridge first? Each one of these homes will add traffic to the already appalling tailbacks caused by toll collection at the bridge.
I’m not against the development of the village, far from it – things change, places grow, people need homes – but how very silly! I find myself cynically wondering if there are not some vested interests somewhere…
|I was interested to see that an online poll on the Witney Gazette website showed that 87.5% of voters want to tolls scrapped. This is borne out by the contents of my emailbox in which I have received lots of very supportive comments.|
It’s very simple. Remove the tolls (which are the obstruction) and allow the traffic to flow. Scrap the tolls! Sign this petition and register your support.
