Protesting to Heseltine JLP01_08_085064

WESTWAY FLYOVER, A40, KENSINGTON AND CHELSEA, GREATER LONDON. A crowd gathered beside a journalist interviewing Michael Heseltine at the opening of the Westway Flyover, with a protest banner draped in the background.
Michael Heseltine was Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport, and deputised for the Minister John Peyton to cut the tape for the opening of the Westway Flyover. Acklam Road was the focus of protests against the Westway by local residents. Houses along one side of the street had been demolished to make way for the flyover. At a reception held earlier that day at the Lords Tavern, George Clark, leader of the residents social rights committee, had presented their objections to the Minister of Transport and representatives from the Greater London Council. By September the GLC had promised the residents that they would be rehoused. This photograph was taken at grid reference TQ
