M4 re­lief road A pro­posed 14-mile ex­ten­sion of the M4 to by­pass New­port in South Wales cuts across the Gwent Lev­els. The £1.4bn project would wreck four SSSIs and carve up a wet­land that is home to the rare shrill carder bee and Wales’s first breed­ing cranes in 400 years.

Liver­pool port road High­ways Eng­land plans a £250m dual car­riage­way to serve the new deep­wa­ter port in Liver­pool. But it is routed through Rim­rose Val­ley park, a green lung for Sefton.

Arun­del by­pass A27 The pre­ferred route for a four-mile dual car­riage­way around Arun­del was an­nounced this year. The £250m route would save com­muters 90 min­utes each week but it cuts through part of the South Downs Na­tional Park and Bin­sted Woods.
