New crossing long overdue

Sir, — One can but be dismayed that both South Oxfordshire District Council and Oxfordshire County Council are said to be continuing to oppose the construction of a third bridge.

This has been going on for as long as any of us can remember, certainly before the A329(M) was constructed.

Their objection has always been a thinly disguised “NIMBY” argument — the stated fear of more traffic merely masking a desire to avoid more pressure for development in South Oxfordshire, thereby pulling up the drawbridge.
