Blackwood Bypass - Action Alert
- phone fax email web blockade on Blackwood sub-contractor -
Blackwood people have called on supporters to politely ask subcontractors working on the Blackwood Bypass in S.Wales to stop destroying the last woodlands in the valley. They suggest that the following company in particular may be open to contact. Please phone or visit them as often as you think necessary. If you contact them you may wish to point out that their machinery and staff are subject to a criminal investigation in regard to trashing bats, dormice and bat habitats - these are protected under the Wildlife Act, and to trash them is a criminal offence.
This contractor has hired a massive excavator with long reach - it is used to drag felled trees up or down steep embankments to the chipper. If this contractor pulls out then Costain and Caerphilly County Council will find it difficult to continue building this unwanted road...

The Blackwood Bypass will destroy the last woodland in the area - much of it mature oak and beech, killing rare species such as dormice, bats and slowworms. It is being built to serve a bomb factory just down the road, and local people hate it... so if your thing is animal rights, peace, local communities or ecology then get on that phone, fax or email now....
