EC urged to put brakes on M74 project - Scotsman.com News
The Greens claim ministers and the companies involved in the tender process broke two key European Union directives and are calling on the EC to intervene and halt the project.

The official complaint is the latest stage in what has been a protracted battle between the environmental lobby and the Scottish Government over the £500 million project....

The extension is designed to link the M74 to the M8, west of the Kingston Bridge in Glasgow. The five miles of motorway are estimated to cost about £500 million.

The project has been backed by business groups, local authorities in the area and the current Scottish Government – it was previously supported by the Labour-led Scottish Executive.

Is this the same M74 extension that saw Willie Haughey OBE, successful businessman, very generous Labour supporter and head of a Scottish quango, pocket millions of pounds of taxpayer money?

No great surprise there, that the Greens are against roads, cars, technology, and are willing to do whatever it takes to stop progress.

Against roads, cars, and technology - and for statist intervention by the EC. If Tar-and-Feathering and the Stocks were re-enabled among the public, a lot of things like this could be easily taken care of on a local level.

We could rebuild the wall for less than half that budget!
