Am I the only one who thinks that a Hitchin southern by-pass from the Wymondley dual carriageway to the Luton Road would be a great idea and that if this was built and paid for by developers, then it would possibly happen 20 years sooner than if it is left to any Government.

If this means that Hitchin expands within a defined ring road, but not outside that, then surely this would make sense.

The extra council tax received from any new development would bring additional infrastructure benefits to the community as a whole.
