We're on the road to nowhere

This evening I attended a rather sureal meeting about a new road which will be built around Norwich. Only a handfull of people tuirned up, and the meeting was held in a very unpleasent pub in the centre of Norwich.

The road itself will be a disaster for the people of Norwich. Although local government are claiming that the road is required to reduce congestion in Norwich it is, in fact, a development road. It will be part of a project to encourage urban-sprawl. The project will involve 100,000 people moving to the outskirts of Norwich. Where the 100,000 people will come from doesn't seem to have been addressed yet.
