The additional bypass – actually a cut through, is a total waste of money.  How would you feel if your land or business was taken out by the government.  How would you feel if your senior family members could not access their chosen neighbors and businesses.  If as claimed, that downtown hampstead is congested, Why build something that will require drivers to choose between almost a dozen lanes when driving to their destination… THAT IS A HAZARDOUS SITUATION AND ENDANGERS LIVES.  Yes the military uses Highway 17, build a bypass further North.  Birds can fly, people can’t.
