info needed for roads protests research project

My name is Trevor Halliday and I am writing to ask for help with a university project that I am doing. I want to look into the financial impact that protesters have on road schemes. Hopefully, I will get a clearer idea of exactly how the different protest techniques hit the planners' pockets.

To do this I would really love to hear from the guys and gals that have been involved in road protests over the years. The sort of stuff that would really help me is information on specific road schemes, such as -

* How much the road scheme was originally expected to cost, and how much did it actually cost? Does anybody know how much extra cost was due to the protest?

* Does anyone know the cost of having extra security at construction sites?

* Was the road project delayed, and is there any way of working out how much this cost?

* Does anyone know how much it costs to hit protesters with legal notices such as eviction notices?

* Would anybody be able to recommend potential contacts or sources of such information within Local Government departments or construction companies that would hold such cost figures?

Thankyou in advance to anyone able to help me. I assure you that any input will be very gratefully received.
