Clive speaks out against Thames Gateway Bridge at public inquiry

Clive appeared at the Public Inquiry into the proposed Thames Gateway road bridge.

He explained that the case supporting the bridge was not sustainable on the basis of its environmental impact and its benefits to the local economy.

Clive also complained about the lack of meaningful consultation with local people and the absence of independent assessments of the arguments made in favour of the Thames Gateway transport schemes.

He pointed out that a road bridge would increase traffic on local roads leading to increased pressure for new roads to relieve congestion.
