Touching Blue Ltd is currently working very hard, with partners, to develop a serious alternative to the Highways England preferred option B; a new road over the Valley.
This option was not available for consideration by HE during their study, but now it is.
Progress is being made and, once a certain stage is reached, a lot more detail will appear on this site and within this blog.
The positives in this venture are many! The project lead has a personal interest with 20 years extensive knowledge of managing the A5036 corridor and was resident for many years close to Rimrose Valley; there is a better solution.
Our partner organisation is led by engineers who are dedicated to solving problems and have developed a specific solution using mostly existing technology that is simple and reliable. However, this solution would not simply solve problems, it creates numerous benefits too.
It is a fact that economical arguments tend to beat community and environmental arguments but in this case, we also have a stronger economical argument.
