Thank you for your support so far!
Over 1,800 people have already supported our campaign. All your messages of support were received by the Transport Minister, Ken Skates, the First Minister, Mark Drakeford and your local and regional members of the Welsh Parliament throughout Wales. This is a superb achievement, which has well and truly put the campaign on the map. We know through various channels that the e-action and accompanying Open Letter have already had the desired effect; politicians of all political parties throughout Wales are aware of the issue and have had to state and explain their position on the road scheme, which helps us plan our future course of action.
Please continue to share and promote the campaign as it's very much still live and is influencing decision makers. It would be great if we could reach 2,000 supporters!
Wales Transport Strategy consultation - we need your help!
A new Wales Transport Strategy (WTS) is being consulted on by the Welsh Government, and will provide a strategic plan for all forms of transport, from now until 2040.
We are dismayed that it doesn't refer to the Red Route at all! If enough of us lobby for the Red Route to be considered, there's a good chance that this damaging road scheme could be stopped. Make your voice heard and submit your response by 25 January (we've included a suggested response to help you).
Otters at Leadbrook Ancient woodland!
Max Hodgkinson, whose grandfather's farm and woodland would be devastated by the highway, recently captured footage of an otter on the Lead Brook that runs through the threatened woodland. This special and beautiful animal is known to be vulnerable to road deaths and its habitat will be severely harmed if the road is built. This brings home the real risks to wildlife that this damaging road scheme will bring.
