Crowds flocked to a consultation event detailing proposals for Stratford’s proposed South Western Relief Road yesterday, with opponents and supporters of the project keen to have their voices heard.

The consultation, organised by CALA Homes at the Grand Plaza Hotel, saw the developer display its design ideas for the road and its bridge across the River Avon, with representatives on hand to answer people’s questions.

CALA presented two designs for the bridge, a two arch construction and another called a steel box girder bridge, along with construction options for a viaduct structure leading up to the river crossing.

Unlike most consultation events there was a high profile counter presentation by the Stratford Residents Action Group (SRAG) in a neighbouring hotel suite, where opponents of the road aired their arguments.

Both the CALA consultation and the SRAG presentation will again take place on Saturday between 9am-1pm, during the second day of the consultation.

We’re interested in hearing residents’ views on the plans put forward by CALA so please get in contact by emailing news@stratford-herald.com.
