London Motorway Inquiry - Inspector resigns after protests

12.04.2005

At the Thames Gateway Bridge pre-Inquiry meeting on Monday 4th April, the meeting ended in chaos, as the Inspectors walked out after uproar from local residents, a protester seized the Inspector's microphone, and was chased around their table by an official. This was a taster for the controversy that is sure to follow if they attempt to bulldoze a motorway through East London. Today, the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister announced that the Inspector will be 'replaced'. This motorway is very similar to the Oxleas Wood scheme which was defeated in 1993, hot on the heels of the Twyford Down direct action campaign.

3.03.2005

On SATURDAY 5th MARCH @ 9.15 a demonstration against the bypass will be held at the Wing Hill roundabout, junction of A418 and A505.

This is where the bypass is intended to end and six magnificent oaks have already been felled, with seven more marked with the cross of death (these could still be defended with a treehouse if anybody is interested). The local (Tory) MP Andrew Selous, will be at the demonstration. Whilst predictably he remains in favour of the bypass, he has agreed to ask some questions in parliament about the way in which it received permission. There is also the possibility of a Samba band coming along.
