Badger promise sees work restart

Do you want to learn or teach people about badgers?

21 September 2009 - BBC News

Construction of a controversial 20m bus scheme in Hampshire has restarted after the county council agreed not to disturb badger setts. Work on the Bus Rapid Transit scheme between Gosport and Fareham was halted when campaigners won an injunction over claims animals may be at risk. But clearance work has been allowed to continue after Hampshire County Council agreed to measures to protect animals.

The council won a variation to the injunction to continue work on the bus route, which will be partly built along an old railway line. The authority agreed to monitor and maintain existing badger setts, relocate reptiles and install temporary reptile fencing. However, the new injunction does stop any work to remove the disused and derelict railway track near the badger setts.
