Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION - JU­DITH MILLINER

I re­fer to the let­ter from Chris Den­zar ‘HS2 sign is rather pre­sump­tu­ous.’

The im­pact of con­struc­tion traf­fic through­out the Chilterns will be huge. To say it’s sev­eral miles from the near­est tun­nelling point is quite wrong.

Tun­nelling will be tak­ing place un­der­neath Coleshill, Old Amer­sham, and in­deed there is a vent­ing shaft in Lit­tle Mis­senden.

A tun­nel por­tal will exit at South Heath. All traf­fic us­ing the A355 for ac­cess.

The sign is a re­al­is­tic ap­praisal of the im­pend­ing dis­rup­tion on all our lo­cal roads from the es­ti­mated 40 lor­ries per hour ser­vic­ing this enor­mous project.

The ac­tion groups work­ing against this van­ity project are do­ing a fan­tas­tic job, and I find it quite sad that this very in­of­fen­sive sign should cause such in­dig­na­tion.
