Rural bypasses

Posted on 12-07-20 by Henry Fitch Number of votes: 0 | Number of comments: 1

I live in a village with a busy road through it, as do many people in rural communities. Labour should propose a program of building bypasses for such communities. While the future will be electric cars, the private car will inevitably be as big a part of life as they are now (particularly in rural areas). Building bypasses has many benefits - improved safety in the communities where busy roads are; improved quality of life for those living near busy roads; increased economic efficiency from reduced journey times; potential to include new housing developments off bypasses; employment on the construction of new roads. Politically, Labour needs to regain trust outside cities - many in rural communities and small towns believe Labour is only for those in big cities. Committing to addressing a big priority for them will help rehabilitate the party's battered reputation in those communities, showing it is for all people not just for young city-dwellers
