The countryside champions

Transport Campaign Group

The Transport Campaign Group (TCG) campaigns for a sustainable transport system in Hampshire and seeks to maintain a pollution-free tranquil environment in the countryside and in villages. Its aim is to improve the understanding of national and local transport issues, of CPRE campaigns and policies and of its links in partnership with national and local authorities.

CPRE wants to reduce the need for environmentally damaging transport on the road and in the air. It campaigns also for better use of existing seating capacity on public transport. We support a reduction in road building; oppose expansion of regional airports, airstrips and seaports and we want to see a more sensitive appearance and approach to road signage, light pollution, CO2 emissions and traffic management.

Current areas of priority in TCG include:

  • South East Plan/ local Transport Plan
  • M27 Improvements
  • Operational expansion of Southampton and Farnborough Airports
  • Air Corridors over Hampshire and New Forest
  • Hindhead tunnel
  • Lyndhurst By-pass
  • Railway services in the South East
  • Highway Rangers
  • Noise and Light Pollution
  • HGV Routes / SATNAV
