A21: road widening vs ancient woodland

This is from the Woodland Trust - please help the campaign.

The Highways Agency has resurrected plans to widen a stretch of the A21 between Tonbridge and Pembury in Kent. If these plans go ahead they will result in the direct loss of 9 hectares of irreplaceable ancient woodland.
Anyone who has visited the area will know that there are traffic issues and solutions need to be found. However this scheme will have a substantial negative impact on the local environment whilst in all likelihood only being a short term fix for the problem.
