Stop Link Rd widening, Great Missenden, Bucks
Scrap the decision to fell trees and widen Link Rd in the village of Great Missenden.
Why is this important?
Great Missenden is a beautiful village in the heart of the Chilterns AONB. This road widening is a County Council scheme, prompted by the decision to build the HS2 Chiltern tunnel portal in the neighbouring village of South Heath. The works are due to start on October 14th. Crucially, HS2 Ltd did NOT ask originally for the road widening in the village. This was insisted upon by the County Council in 2016 for "traffic flow" reasons, with no regard given to the safety of vulnerable road users or enhancements to pedestrian safety or the wishes of villagers. These works must immediately be placed on hold, pending the outcome of the Government's HS2 review and ideally scrapped altogether.
How it will be delivered
Please keep signing. Given the urgency however, I have submitted electronic copies to the Department for Transport, HS2 Ltd, the Oakervee HS2 review, Bucks County Council, Cllr Peter Martin and local MP Cheryl Gillan.
