Michael Lyon voted for the Butler Street bypass. He voted to destroy a community, people’s living conditions, and to destroy untouched protected wetlands.
He did this without looking properly at the alternative. The 2001 EIS was the only study completed on the bypass and its best location. It concluded that the rail corridor was the best outcome for the environment and the community.
It was done in 2001. Last week on Facebook Mr Lyon said he had never seen those plans. Is it too much to ask that our councillors are informed on topics before voting on them?
