appeal for support from Transport 2000

Dear friend,

Thank you for being a part of Transport 2000's Road Block network. As you may recall, since January, Road Block has been a project of Transport 2000. I'm writing to you today to ask for your help to strengthen that network.

Thanks to efforts of campaigners like you, and the work of Rebecca Lush, the road-building scandal is now starting to get the media attention it deserves. Recent articles in the Guardian and the New Statesman have blown the lid off the cost of the road-building programme both the cost to the taxpayer and the cost to the environment. We need to keep the pressure on the Government and get these ridiculous policies ditched once and for all.

You can help do this by supporting Transport 2000 and adding your voice to Britain's biggest environmental transport campaign. The more support we get, the more we can do to put an end to the Government's short-sighted, environmentally destructive road-building policies.

More and more people across the country are asking us for help in stopping road schemes that threaten to blight their neighbourhoods, destroy landscapes and increase noise and air pollution. We've been helping as many as we can but we can only do so much with the resources we have. That's why your support is so important to us.

We are also determined to continue lobbying the Government for alternatives to building more roads. We're fighting for more investment in public transport, more freight moved by rail and more policies and programmes that give people real alternatives to driving. Our website gives full details of all our campaigns.

Please support Transport 2000 today you can do so online -

Thank you for your support.

Best regards,

Stephen Joseph
Executive Director, Transport 2000
