Aberdeen bypass campaigner prepared to be ‘unpopular’
William Walton set for court battle
THE campaigner challenging Aberdeen’s bypass said today he was prepared to be “unpopular” should he win his battle next week.
Road Sense chairman William Walton will take on the Scottish Government at the UK Supreme Court in London.
Mr Walton’s QC Aidan O’Neill will argue that ministers breached planning laws and the Aberdeen bypass project should not be given the green light.
Mr Walton said: “If there is some unpopularity then I’ll just have to carry the can.”
