After a disappointing meal at a restaurant, do you boo the chefs too?

Bit unfair, I’ve acknowledged and appreciated reasons for the road.

In ten years time when you wish to enjoy a day out in Suffolk’s lovely countryside, you won’t be able to.

In ten years time you will bemoan the scarily hot summers due to climate change.

I think you’re spot on.

I presumed those were the beginnings of the road constructions.

Some people care about the world we live in.

We’re not all arrogant.

Despite the increase in traffic, pollution, destruction of our countryside, and the disruption of the once tranquil and peaceful country that we have, that is soon to be ruined by people like yourself.

Read the thread.

However, because you clearly haven’t, I’ll put it simply.

I don’t think building the road is a good idea, therefore it is a bad idea. I want the bad idea to not take place.

There’s no expectation for a ‘viable alternative’, other than not building the road. That is the alternative.

You say going against the road is against tourism, however Suffolk’s USP is its countryside, building all 3 roads would absolutely decimate the countryside and therefore reduce tourism, because of your mindless plans.

I do, yes.

And I regularly see the construction of one of the routes when I’m travelling from place to place.

Although have tried to not use arguments of ‘it will make too much noise’.

I’m in my teens, so don’t have a clue. And this is a differenent scenario, at a different time, with a new outlook on the world’s health from 30 years ago.

It is completely irrelevant therefore.

Which was my point.

Exactly my point.

Then may you elaborate on your first post?

The argument was that moving cars produce less CO2 as they get to their destination before ones stuck in traffic do. Which is a good argument.

But that would only be the case if the new road developments actually reduce traffic.

Which is what I said in the post that you quoted.

So I am quite confused at what your post was about.

There’s so many different issues, making it a very large debate.

It’s clearly more than just ‘should we have a road or not’.

There’s issues of housing, the local economy, the environment and climate chang and traffic. That’s why this absolutely needs to be talked about and weighed up rather than just mindlessly going in with a decision without having talked about the various issues that will arise or would be solved.

Even since I started this thread, some very very good counter arguments have been raised which bring in new issues that I hadn’t thought about previously. I’m glad this thread has been a good debate, rather than the usual name calling and flouncing.

It’s a real issue, with two sides to the debate, both with good arguments to back itself.

It has to be presumed that the road will eliminate traffic, realistically I’m not sure if that will be the case.

It will increase the development of new settlements, which will increase carbon emissions too. On top of that, lots of vegetation will be destroyed which of course acts as a carbon sink.

Road developments often encourage trade, which may boost the use of Felixstowe and surrounding areas (obviously a fantastic benefit, but at the cost of the environment), which will actually increase traffic.

Bit of a misunderstanding, I thought you meant building the road with renewable infrastructure alongside it, as if it would make the initial project ‘alright’.

I’d be fine with the construction of wind turbines, as long as the plans for them were done well, of course.

The road on the other hand, I do not agree.

My point was that regardless of how many wind turbines are included in the road development, you still have the road development itself, so I cannot stand for it.

It does not justify or make it alright to build the road just because we attempt to ‘even’ the scores out by building renewable energy systems.

I don’t mind having wind turbines in our countryside, though having such a road in it, I disagree with.

If we took this same attitude to all the similar road developments across the country and indeed the world we’d have missed out on a large opportunity to reduce our own impact on the environment.

It’s this lazy attitude of “ah let’s not worry about it, we’re only a small region, it won’t make a difference” that gets us nowhere.

Not even mentioning the local scale environmental impacts of this road, such as a loss of habitats, disruption of ecosystems and the increased risk of flooding...

All for renewable energy, which of course is where this country needs to be heading (and is already heading).

Though ripping into cherished countryside, regardless of how many bells and whistles they stick onto the land, cannot be stood for.

That’s my opinion, yours may differ.
