Does East Swindon Need a Green Bridge?

Covingham and Dorcan’s Conservative Councillors have called on millions of pounds to be spent on a Green Bridge from the new Eastern Villages development in to Covingham.

Motorists will be blocked from using this bridge as it will only be designated for buses and cyclists.

As your Labour Candidate, I question the spending of this money when the traffic impact on Swindon’s roads resulting from this development will be dramatic.

I believe a new bridge from the Eastern Villages over the A419 is needed but should be available for all motorists.

Only by voting Labour in the May 5th Local Elections will you be able to generate a Council rethink on the Green Bridge.
