Save Rimrose Valley

In Episode Two, we hear how a small, but committed team of people, determined to stop a road being built through their local country park, soon come to realise that this is part of a much bigger problem. They learn about the wider environmental and public health impacts of road-building and gain the support of leading, national organisations. This episode features contributions from Friends of the Earth, Transport Action Network and the Chief Executive of CPRE (the Campaign to Protect Rural England). We also hear how Highways England's public consultation presented just two options; neither of which was acceptable to local communities and ask why the outcome was ignored? Local people explain how history is repeating itself and talk about the devastation caused by another of Highways England's roads, decades before.
