Barbara has condemned flawed proposals from the Highways Agency to add a lane to the M60 between Junctions 12 and 15.
The proposals were presented by Highways Agency officials at a packed meeting at Worsley Court House on Tuesday 7th April. The meeting had been requested by Worsley residents after Barbara had protested at the poor consultation held with the Public at an exhibition held recently in Worsley by the Highways Agency.
"I had been very concerned about the lack of information from the Highways Agency on proposals which could affect the quality of life of local people who live near the motorway.The presentation of the proposals at the meeting only served to make local residents more angry and worried about what might happen.
"The proposals are deeply flawed, causing concerns about the potential impact on quality of life of many hundreds of residents who live close to the motorway as well as concerns about safety on proposed narrow lanes on the motorway. The officials at the meeting made a poor presentation and could not answer questions on which residents really need answers.
"I urge Worsley constituents who feel they will be affected by these proposals to contact me and I will ensure all comments are passed on to Transport Ministers. We cannot accept these proposals as they have too much impact on a large number of local people and also offer poor value for money in terms of solving congestion issues locally."
