Suggestions to prevent ‘stack’

Scenic Dover deserves infrastructure money much more than London – so Westminster should spend London Green Bridge money here.

We Greens called for a shallow greened-over tunnel from A20 Western Heights / Aycliffe to Eastern docks for freight last year- like the A3 Hindhead tunnel or the M25 Bell common. Air pollution could be taken from tunnel out to sea. A better plan would diversify and redirect freight across the southeast using more ports, and by using RAIL links.

Big new roads and developments are just starting along A2 near Whitfield – If they want to put more freight on A2 it would need a fly-over or under at Duke of York’s roundabout for local traffic.

The planned lorry park at Stanford will prevent much-needed sustainable, radical solutions being put in place. It would not reduce air pollution and eat up 250 acres of farmland.
