Letter: Baffling bypass

Baffling bypass

Sir: How can a government supposedly committed to the concept of sustainable development contemplate building the Salisbury bypass, an 11-mile dual carriageway across one of the most environmentally sensitive areas of the country (report, 2 October)? It was the Prime Minister who said, in the foreword to the Government's environmental policy White Paper This Common Inheritance: "We must put a proper value on the natural world; it would be odd to cherish a Constable and not the landscape he depicted."
