Brave attempts to stop road-building address only the symptoms, not cause, of sprawl tsunami

What’s wrong with the Link Road? « Combe Haven Defenders: "The road would carry up to 30,000 vehicles a day across a valley, Combe Haven, described by ESCC as ‘probably the finest medium-sized valley in East Sussex outside of Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty’."
As long as the subsidized private auto has critical mass as a way of moving people, the only thing that will stop sprawl is the economic collapse coming with the end of cheap energy. We can anticipate and mitigate this collapse by ending #autosprawl now. We should start in the cities by making them car-free.
