How You Can Help

Have Your Say

Our councillors and Members of Parliament have a duty to represent our opinions to Highways England. Find out how who to contact and what you could say.

Spread The Word

From putting up a sign to spreading the No Expressway message on social media, there are plenty of ways to offer your time and support.

Donate

Printing leaflets and posters, travelling to fetes and organising No Expressway events has a cost. Your kind donations help us to keep the campaign running.

 

Have Your Say

 
 

1. Make your voice heard

By signing up to our updates you are joining all the people who oppose the Expressway. The more people that sign up, the stronger our campaign. Sign up now!

 

2. Sign the petition

The two petitions to sign right now are UK Government and Parliament petition and change.org petition.


3. Register to be a Highways England Stakeholder

Highways England have confirmed that both Individuals and Groups can register to be Highways England Stakeholders for the Oxford-Cambridge Expressway Project. Be the first to know the latest from Highways England, including when and where the Route Options Consultation Process will be. Register now!


4. Write to the key parliamentary ministers

If you only have time to email one person, make it Grant Shapps, the minister with responsibility for making the final decision. Express your objection to the lack of public consultation and visibility, the lack of a Strategic Environmental Assessment, the over-inflated housing targets for the area (without consideration of whether they are in the right location, at the right price), and the ongoing threat of environmental disaster.

If you can spare the time, email other politicians with involvement in the project too — we’ve listed as many of the relevant ones as we can here: 

 

 

5. Write to the Oxfordshire Growth Board

 

 

6. Write to your local councillors

Voice your objections and ask them how they plan to reflect the views of their local constituents. Click on the logo for your local council to find out who to get in touch with.
