Transport cases

Road schemes can have negative effects on the environment, protected habitats and species. We get involved with road proposals to avoid or minimise these impacts, ensuring that any road schemes needed are in the least damaging locations possible.

Transport cases

A11 dualling

The proposed works on the A11 is a real opportunity to deliver improvements to this road, and ensure that the wildlife of this special area is not harmed.

Danube Delta

The Danube Delta is one of Europe's premier wetlands and home to over 320 different types of bird. However it is coming under increasing pressure from development.

Via Baltica

Important wildlife sites in north-east Poland are under threat from damage by a series of road projects on the so called 'Via Baltica' international road corridor.

A6 dualling proposals

A proposal to construct a dual carriageway raises concerns for internationally important numbers of whooper swans.

Able Logistics Park

We have concerns about a proposal for a massive 370 ha port-related storage facility on the South Humber Gateway.

Serengeti highway

The Serengeti National Park in Tanzania supports possibly the greatest migration in the natural world of antelopes and 1.8 million wildebeest and is one of the most recognisable national parks in the world, but could now be severed by government plans for a major commercial highway.

High Speed 2

The proposed new high-speed rail link between London and the Midlands prompts some tough questions about planning for our future long-distance transport needs, reducing our carbon footprint and protecting wildlife at the same time.

Rosyth International Container Terminal

We are actively supporting Scottish Natural Heritage's objection to a new development that could cause significant harm to the Firth of Forth Special Protection Area.

Saint Helena

St Helena is one of the most remote islands in the world. Construction of an airport is under way and the island's government is now encouraging the development of a tourism industry. Decisions taken now can have a profound affect on the environment and it's unique wildlife.

Lower Thames Crossing

A new crossing for the Thames, east of London, is on the cards. Three options have been proposed and all have implications for the protected landscape and wildlife of this magnificent world class river.

Upgrading the M4 around Newport

A new motorway could be built south of Newport across the nationally important Gwent Levels. Three new road options have been proposed, all have worrying implications for this fragile wetland landscape.
