Hot off the press July 19th, 2019


More good news as SODC see sense and vote to oppose the destruction or our environment, local livelihoods and public health.

At South Oxfordshire District Council meeting on 18th July 2019, the council voted to oppose the expressway “in all forms”. They passed the following resolutions:

Council therefore resolves to:

  • Oppose the Expressway project in all forms, including expansion of existing or new roads in the district to form part of it.

  • Support fully-electrified East West rail, including freight capacity and connections, and better public transport and active travel connections.

  • Update all council documents to reflect this new position on the Expressway and related Arc development proposals.

  • Continue to support partnership working, especially with regard to landscape scale conservation and nature recovery networks.

  • (amendment) Communicate opposition to the Expressway to Government, MPs and Highways England.

We need your help.

No Expressway Group believes there is no need for an Oxford-Cambridge Expressway, nor the over-inflated housing targets associated with it, and we will actively campaign against it and support other organisations with the same objectives. 

Our environment is a national asset which is critical for everyone’s health and well-being. We must not let it be destroyed.

Please note:

The No Expressway Group has a group bank account to which the Chair, Secretary and Treasurer are signatories. The group will publish accounts on each year which will be audited by an accountant from outside the NEG group.

If any funds are left at the end of the campaign, these will be donated equally between RSPB and BBOWT.
