Spokes have revived this issue, if anyone's interested. http://www.spokes.org.uk/index.php?name=News&file=article&sid=116 == 25.9.07 Campaign for top-quality route Edinburgh to Forth Road Bridge Spokes is renewing its campaign for a flagship-quality route between Edinburgh and the Forth Road Bridge. If you use this route - please help us!! The decision of the SNP government to abolish tolls on the Forth Road Bridge - which requires legislation in the Scottish Parliament - has led to growing concern about increased traffic and congestion in and around Edinburgh, and increased CO2 emissions. See http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/s3/committees/ticc/inquiries/BridgeTollsBill.htm In response to this concern, Cabinet Minister John Swinney MSP stated, "We will continue to invest in initiatives which reduce congestion, such as improved park and ride, and improved rail, bus and cycle links." How seriously Mr Swinney meant the last 3 words, we don't know, but we are seizing the opportunity to try and get action on the above route, which is currently appalling. Comments from regular users about the route include, "completely inadequate," "national disgrace," "dangerous and intimidating," and so on. For our letter to Mr Swinney, see downloads - campaign submissions - Scottish government. The link is at http://www.spokes.org.uk/modules.ph...e=index&req=viewdownload&cid=15&orderby=dateD If you use this route, whether as a commuter, or leisure user, please contact your MSP and ask them to raise this with the Minister, John Swinney. It really will help greatly to make the government take this seriously if the issue is raised with local MSPs by many concerned people. Please do *not* just copy the wording out of our letter - write using your own words and giving your own thoughts on the route and on what should be done. Please copy us your letter and any useful replies [firstname.lastname@example.org].
