widen the M1 between Junctions 10-13.  Please write a short email objecting 
before Thursday 12 July to

If there are enough objections it will force a public enquiry.

Feel free to object on any grounds you like but you could mention
- traffic generation
- unacceptable costs
- increased CO2 emissions
- increased air pollution
- noise

Don't feel you need to put in a long or detailed response - just a few 
sentences is fine.

there around the city centre to Barker's Pool (opposite the Town Hall), 
where we will rally and launch a petition.
