Save the Levels

© Campaign for Better Transport is a website for a group that have been set up to try and prevent the development of a massive new section of the M4 in Gwent. The Wildlife Trusts are involved in this movement. The website shows the proposed route of the new M4 on the ‘Motorway Proposals’ tab - the politicians have said on the news that much of it passes through poor industrial landscape - but for the reality look at how much of it passes through the spectacular and important Gwent Levels SSSI.

What can you do?

The ‘Take Action’ tab on the website will link you to a petition, to letter templates for politicians, and a website where you can email your Assembly Member (AM).

WAG are pursuing this because they believe that it is what the people of Wales want. If you disagree with them, please help by telling WAG that some of us don’t believe this is the right thing to do; that we should be discouraging car use and road-building, not increasing them; and that no developments should take place near or in an SSSI.

And if you know anyone else who might agree - please let them know.
