Vote for Sustrains Connect 2!

Readers of 'Rupert's read' have for the next few days a great opportunity to improve facilities for pedestrians and cyclists at no direct cost to themselves. All they -- all you -- have to
do is to vote for the Sustrans Connect2 project in the Big Lottery Fund's
£5 Million giveaway.

The public is being asked to choose between four projects. All four are
good, but one is somewhat influenced by the fact that only the Sustrans project will bring any direct benefit to Norfolk: specifically, through the construction of a path for cycling and walking to Whitlingham County Park, from Norwich train station.
However, the Sustrans project is a national project, whereas the other three are each in one
specific location. Furthermore, the Sustrans project is clearly the most green and sustainable of the four, and is particularly good in that it will support a large number of small projects around the country, rather than just being one mega-project.

The Sustrans project will improve routes for walking and cycling. This will enable more people to take more journeys on foot or
by bike, which will help reduce carbon emissions and bring health
benefits. It will also help car drivers, by reducing traffic and taking
some cyclists off the roads. This project will benefit everyone and
deserves everyone's vote.
It makes perfect sense that this project is being voted on this weekend, the weekend of worldwide demonstrations for action to combat dangerous climate change. Here is one action that we can all take, that will help reduce climate-dangerous carbon-emissions.

I've already voted. You can vote too, at www.thepeoples50million.org.uk or www.sustransconnect2.org.uk . It only takes about a minute. Or vote by texting Connect2 to 80010.
