Another judge has thrown out an appeal against the Heysham M6 Link Road concluding “enough is enough”.

Court of Appeal judge Lord Justice Davis has refused Transport Solutions for Lancaster and Morecambe’s application for permission to appeal against a High Court judgement supporting the project.

The objectors now have seven days to request an oral hearing from the Court of Appeal to reconsider the application, which is the absolute final stage.

Lord Justice Davis concluded in the Court of Appeal yesterday, Tuesday, November 5: “I do not think the proposed grounds of challenge are realistically arguable.

“Nor do I see any other compelling reason to grant permission.

“One can understand that many people will feel strongly about this road, but, in all the circumstances, enough is enough here.

“In my view the judge’s judgement is not susceptible to sustainable challenge.”

Work has already begun to build a depot for the project at Halton Training Camp.
