The entire project appears to be being pursued for corporate gain and civic aggrandizement whilst failing to take proper account of the negative effects which far outweigh the actual benefit for the people of Bristol.

For each of the three sections of MetroBus and for the South Bristol Link Road there are far better, more truly sustainable, lower cost, higher benefit alternatives.

For more detail check out the pages on The Big Picture, the History of Resistance (so far) and the documents in the planning section which include the current FOI request.
