Judicial review for roads programme


24 July 2020

The High Court this week granted environmental campaigners the right to bring a judicial review challenge against the DfT’s trunk road programme on climate change grounds. 

The court’s decision came as campaigners pursued other possible legal cases in the increasingly fractured transport sector. 

Climate litigation charity Plan B notified the Government this week of a proposed judicial review challenge over the Bank of England’s decision to give fossil fuel companies such as airlines and car manufacturers loans to prevent them going bust during Covid-19.

FairFuelUK and the Alliance of British Drivers (ABD) have written to London mayor Sadiq Khan in the first stage of their proposed judicial review challenge against the increase in the congestion charge last month. 

The ABD is also considering legal action against the London Borough of Lewisham over road closures justified by Covid-19. The ABD has told Lewisham: “In essence you are attempting to use the Covid-19 emergency regulations to bring in road closures that have nothing to do with a response to the Covid-19 epidemic.”
