Roads to Ruin Alliance formed

Despite previous governments slashing the road building programme, and a general consensus accepting that building more roads creates more traffic, harms people and the environment, New Labour fancies giving it a try, and is keen to stress the environmental and community benefits of all new and resurrected schemes!

A Roads to Ruin Alliance has been launched, and at the recent Earth First! Summer Gathering, various tactics to fight the government's new roads programme were talked about. A meeting to plan direct actions will take place sometime this autumn watch this space.
