As a local resident, living the other side of Kirkby Stephen to this proposal, I agree absolutely with the petitioning group that a road north of the current A66 makes more sense on all grounds.

It’s more logical to use the alternative northern route.

The proposed scheme for building the new road on the south side of existing A66 road will cause far more disruption and cost more as they will have to build many more bridges for connections to side roads and tunings. The north side of the road has very few road junctions and although it is an area of outstanding natural beauty, not much of this is close to the road and will not affect it. Whereas the south side has many homes and good farm land that will be affected by the new road. The road will pass too close to existing houses (the noise and pollution will be unbearable) please reconsider this. Thank you.

I am concerned for the local communities and the effect this road would have on the environment

No feasibility study has taken place on any alternative route. An alternative route would meet the tests for exceptional circumstances. Highways England has a duty to explore all alternatives.

To put this road south into Warcop and Musgrave is rediculous, who are they protecting the AONB or Ministry for war?
