Support CPRE campaign on UK roadbuilding


The Government is planning the biggest road-building programme in fifty years threatening to plough straight through Green Belts and treasured landscapes.

Hundreds of miles of new and widened roads threaten swathes of countryside, including in over a dozen National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

As part of a new national transport strategy, the Government is set to make major changes. We could see a return to Roman-style road building with roads that plough straight through Green Belts, nationally treasured landscapes, ancient woodland and wildlife sites.
