All  about  WC's  would-be  Westbury  Wilts  A350  Bypass    
  ...  with  a  route  in  the  wrong  area,  on  the  wrong  side  of  the  town  

... the folly of a bypass in the wrong place ... ... a series of A350 bypasses, or why not now fund the existing railway ...?

Organisations which were against the Eastern Westbury Bypass suggest integrated traffic solutions based on strategic access roads and what is in place.

  • www.corridor-alliance.co.uk - now the website of the White Horse Alliance, an umbrella grouping formed in 2007 to stop the Eastern Westbury Bypass - with various recent campaign information.

Wiltshire's barmy eastern bypass plan died after exposure to common sense.

The 500 CPRE award was put into further environmental conservation work.

Wiltshire Council awarded the outgoing director of the eastern bypass project, which wasted some 5,000,000, with 67,000 'compensation for loss of office'.
