Portishead Branch Line - MetroWest Phase 1

Received 25 February 2020
From Ross Adamson


I have serious concerns for the effects that Lodway construction compound will have on the wild animals in and around this green corridor. There are many large mammals which use this area and also many toads living in and around the field which use the area to travel to the nearby pond to spawn. Whilst in favour of the railway, is there not an alternative which will reduce the potential devastating effects to local wildlife?
