I object to this interchange because
1/. The roads and infrastructure is inadequate for this size of construction and will cause unreasonable delays and holdups for a large area around.
2/. The adjacent Motorways have so many non efficient contractors working on them that they will not be able to cope with a major increase in traffic volume especially as work is taking so long that maintenance will now be ongoing and slow the whole system down for many years.
3/. The cost of this project plus HS2 plus Foreign Aid plus relaxation of prudence will push our Debt/GDP up to 100% meaning that the EU can throw us out or take control of our finances and country as happened to Greece
4/. As has happened to any Government project they always overrun and cost double the quoted estimate they must get efficient and active contractors and unfortunately there aren't any
