PLYMOUTH CITY OPPOSE PLAN FOR SECOND BRIDGE CROSSING THE TAMAR

Plymouth City Council has opposed DoT plans for a new bridge crossing of the River Tamar between Devon and Cornwall, the Western Morning News reports.

According to the paper the DoT had suggested four possible routes across the river.

But in an official response to the government inspectors the Labour controlled council says a study should first be made to see if a new crossing is necessary.

There is a concern that providing a new bridge would in fact increase congestion.

Michael Riggs, Chairman of the Tamar Bridge and Torpoint Ferry committee said the money would be better invested in new public transport facilities.
