A horror to come

The M6 south of junction 35 Carnforth
The M6 south of junction 35 Carnforth

I read with horror and dismay of the proposal to build a new motorway junction north of Galgate.

The only possible location would be between the houses bordering Knowe Hill Crescent, Barnacre Close, Dunkenshaw Crescent, Winmarleigh Road, Shireshead Crescent and the Burrowbeck estate to the north and the idyllic hamlet of Bailrigg to the south.

To my knowledge these fields have been the thoroughfare and home of deer, foxes and hedgehogs for the last 40 years.

Why should this last area of beautiful green belt be sacrificed on the high altar of academia? We already have to cope with the view of the monstrous wind turbine.

Do the views of local residents count for nothing anymore? We already have to suffer the constant noise from the M6.
