Portishead Branch Line - MetroWest Phase 1

I want to see the railway built but am concerned about the possible impact on wildlife of some aspects of the construction phase - for example, the use of land at Lodway Farm for a compound, given the use of the land by many creatures, including amphibians. I am also worried about the traffic generated by the construction phase and want to see plans that minimise its impact on both the village (of Pill) and other roads locally.
