I don't seem to be receiving any updates from a local panel charged with looking at proposals for the Blue House Motor Way Interchange that was pushed forward last year as a solution to growing traffic flows along the Central Motorway, Gosforth and Jesmond Dene Road. Large to huge new housing schemes to the north and north west of the city will require new roads. Or so it goes. (Link to recent doom laden propaganda here.)
This just in from the Campaign to Protect Rural England suggests road building doesn't produce improved traffic flows. Some of us have learned that lesson some time ago.
A link to the C.P.R.E. article on commissioned research is here.
