23-07-09 :: Finally, the Orders have been withdrawn
by both the Highways Agency (for the A628) and Tameside (for the
Spur) and the inquiry is officially over. This is in part good
news, but not a victory, as the latest information coming in is
that Tameside are keen to press ahead with the Mottram (only)
bypass under the guise of the "Longdendale Integrated Transport
Strategy", which pays lip service to non-road alternatives
but is really cover for their real (and only) plan, which is to
build a road. The inquiry
website closes on August 6th. The HA update here.
We will be issuing our own release shortly. For comment, please

24-03-09 :: More good news! Today the Highways Agency
