A27 Arundel Bypass – major organisations combine to object

Last week (16 Oct 2017) nine national transport and conservation organisations including CPRE, with a combined supporter base of over three million, wrote a joint letter to the Secretary of State for Transport, the Rt Hon Chris Grayling MP, about the devastating impact of the A27 Arundel bypass proposals.

The letter (download below) asks for less harmful solutions to be brought forward that would safeguard the special qualities of the area, while addressing the traffic issues. Failure to do this would set a dangerous precedent and mean that none of our finest landscapes or natural habitats was safe from damaging development.
Crispin Truman, the new Chief Executive of CPRE said: “These plans set a dangerous precedent for our National Parks, opening the floodgates to further damaging road schemes in our most important landscapes. Our research has found new roads generate new traffic and lead to yet further congestion, suggesting the Arundel scheme is a waste of public money. Highways England must go back to the drawing board and come up with a better solution.
