M4 Black Route would be a ‘disaster’

21 June 2016

Responding to the news that details of a public inquiry into the controversial M4 relief road project in south Wales are set to be revealed later today,

James MacColl, Head of Campaigns at Campaign for Better Transport, said:

"The M4 Black Route would be a disaster for nature, climate and public health. The Public Inquiry needs not just to look at less damaging road options, but how we use rail freight and public transport alternatives to get unnecessary journeys off the roads and reduce congestion. The new administration should abandon this expensive and damaging road project and unite people behind better alternatives.”
