Attention Bypass campaigners (both for and against!): tomorrow morning at 11.40 a.m. on BBC1, Countryfile have a slot about the Bypass. They have filmed both sides making their case in a programme which largely dedicated to the Peak District. The Countryfile website blurb, entitled 'Peak District Roads', is as follows:
The Labour Government has been accused of breaking pre-election promises because of controversial plans for new roads in some of Britain's best-loved landscapes. In the Peak District, there are proposals for a £184m bypass to relieve traffic congestion in three villages on the edge of the National Park. Critics say new roads planned for the Peak District and other protected areas will encourage greater car use.
It would be useful if anyone with the technical know-how could record this portion of the programme and upload it to YouTube, to enable us to feature it here. Please let us know if you can do this by leaving a comment on this item.
