Protesters gathered to call on the council to provide a link road and stop lorries rumbling past their homes.

The campaigners are calling on Sutton Council to resurrect long-abandoned plans to build a link road through the Kimpton Park industrial area that would divert HGVs away from Gander Green Lane, where neighbours have been complaining about the noise they cause.

The protesters, led by local Conservative council candidate Graham Jarvis,  gathered outside Sutton and Cheam's Liberal Democrat MP Paul Burstow's office on Saturday to make their point known.

There were plans for Kimpton Park Way to link Oldfields Road to Stonecot Hill but these were shelved and Kimpton Park Way ends without linking the roads meaning traffic is often forced to use Gander Green Lane, which is residential and narrow in places.

The Lib Dems think the own the area around Gander Green Lane and that voters will obediently put their Xs in the Lib Dems boxes every time no mater how little regard they pay them.

Well done to Graham Jarvis and the local Conservative team for offering a real alternative to people who just aren't being listened to by anyone else.

Nice photo shoot - did you go Simon, seeing as you're a Conservative candidate?

No RBalboa, I'm focusing my efforts in Worcester Park where I'm standing so unfortunately I wasn't able to be there. But I commend Graham Jarvis for his efforts on this campaign (and also with the Friends of the Daisy Field) for offering, as I put it before, a real alternative to the complacent Lib Dems who just take people's votes for granted - especially in the area around Gander green Lane and the north of the borough.

Why is it that there are so many idiotic lemmings around that area that walk to the end of the cliff every election and put an x in the Lib Dem box despite the Lib Dems obvious contempt for the local residents.
No doubt it will happen again in the elections in May and then no doubt Burstow will get in again as MP in 2015 despite everything being about him and only him and despite his recent actions in Parliament and contempt for the people that elected him in the past.
Something is seriously wrong with our electoral system!!!!!
