Motion text

That this House expresses its concern at Highways England's proposal for a new M25/A3 junction alongside RHS Wisley, near Guildford, Surrey; notes the impact the proposal has on 44 trees along the RHS Wisley boundary with the A3 including the felling of 17 Grade II Heritage tree, and 27 other trees (including North American redwood species and 5 Grade II* Heritage Trees) being negatively impacted by the undermining of their root strength; further notes the negative impact on the local road network and thereby local residents; recognises that the proposal will have a wider environmental impact as a result of the unnecessary extra mileage and inevitable increased pollution created by the junction; and calls on the Government to stop the Highways England proposal which has been opposed by the RHS, its members, local residents and local councils and require Highways England to consider and implement an alternative approach.
